The forums are abuzz with news that Bell has released an official update for the Blackberry Storm 9530.
Some Bell users received an email this afternoon stating that an upgrade was made available.

Although the OS is not available conveniently through RIM’s website, Bell users can get a hold of it once they connect their Storm’s via Desktop Manager. Once connected, it will signal that there is an update and users can proceed accordingly.

Try it and let us know!

    Not a rumor. Very real. You can download the java & cdma files from megaupload. The signed installer is not available yet.

    This is far from being a rumor. I’m running this OS right now.

    Smooth and quick install with auto backup/restore. Device running fine, but visible differences are very small (cursor, full keyboard in portrait…) and performance only seems slightly better to me.

    Any one know if you have to downgrade to .75 to be able to install? I am running a leaked .113. I am a Bell subscriber.

    I’ve decided that Verizon just wants their customers to hate them enough to switch to another carrier. LET US UPGRADE!!!! First no 8830 upgrades and now Storm…WTF????

    Hey, it works great, it’s very smooth. Feels faster, more responsive. The camera application is quick to open and use. Even the keyboard feels quicker when tapping on it. It’s nicely done. No new features though.

    @cptstnkpnts
    Hey, no need to downgrade. The Desktop Manager will automatically (should automatically) upgrade your Blackberry when plugged in.

    Hey guys,

    I am trying to update my storm to the newest OS software through the Desktop Manager v.4.7 but it always starts and then stops at “Downloaded Modules 272 of 318″.

    Did this happen to others? How can we fix or avoid this? Need help.

    Thanks

    I have Verizon and just upgraded to this .122 version. I HATE IT. I don’t know if it is just me, but the battery has drained super super quick since I updated. The landscape to vertical is faster for switching, but I am considering going to back to .75 to save my batter life. Yesterday I answered the phone ONCE and the battery was dead within 8 hours. No internet use or anything, and it was dead.
