    Hey all,

    I am sorry if this has been brought up like 2000000 times but I just wanna know when 5.0 will officially come out for the Curve 8330 from Verizon.

    Thanks a bunch!

    Ask RIM. No one here can tell you.

    Ok - so no one can tell me about 5.0 coming out for the Curve but weeks in advance you guys knew about it coming out for the Storm...thanks for your "help" - sorry if I seem annoyed but I asked a question to get an answer and that's not true when you say "no one here can tell you"...

    That was a platform that was out in beta, with loose-lipped beta testers.

    Specific models, no one here will know - as RIM has to release it to VZW & VZW has to approve it. It was a surprise to all when 4.5 hit for the 8830. Since no one at VZW will tell you - as the software engineers don't have a call-queue for questions - RIM is your only option.

    I think it was close to 6 months before 4.5 hit for 8830 - really hard to tell.

    It doesn't help either that the Curve is now a legacy device & VZW can't even get their heads out of their tails with the TP2 & WM6.5 availability.

    In other words, I'd not hold my breath, if I were you.

    You've been here long enough, you should know how it is by now.

    No one really knows for sure besides RIM and Verizon. And because we are dealing with 2 entities that have a say in the OS release along with the fact that the 8330 is getting to be dated there is a chance it could be as soon as RIM officially rolls out 5.0 for the entire line-up with enough RAM to power it. Who knows, it may not meet Verizon's testing standards and they may never officially release it.

    My best guess is relatively soon. I think it will be included with the full roll-out of 5.0. When that will be is anybodies guess. If I remember correctly, I think the rumor was that it was suppose to be released sometime around now. But we are talking about hardware/software, so that time frame is bound to slip (ever seen a developer come out with stuff early?).

    There is just no telling.

    Until then you can either try a beta or beta hybrid. or get one of the new phones with 5.0 and the horsepower to run it effectively.

    No problem. I was running the leaked 5. before I got the Storm2 yesterday, and thought it worked basically pretty well. It did have its glitches like not being able to run themes and a couple other minor issues. However, threaded messaging and the improved camera was enough for me to be able to over look the minor glitchy stuff.

    How do you like the Storm 2?

    Overall, I like it. I have been a physical keyboard guy, so this is taking some getting used to. But it is a big improvement from the first Storm with the first few OS's.

    I am going to try it hard for the next week, if I can't cope with the virtual keyboard I will look hard at the Droid.

    S2 is great. As for OS5.0 for the 8330 - you can already install a leaked 5.0 build for the 8330 - only problem is, the 8330m will NOT get the upgrade. Sad.
