    Love it. So much faster & smoother. Little if any freezing
    Also had to delete some great apps. But well worth it.
    No problems downloading it either. GREAT version

    I am not pleased with my $500 beta version of Storm. I am unable to download the much awaited upgrade as it keeps asking me to free up 19MB of memory. I have deleted all my cool apps, all my mssgs, most of my photos, all my video, my call record, and it still asks for 19MB of memory. Yech. This is my third Storm. They keep replacing it with another loser version. They will not take it back. I wouldn’t want it either so I guess I understand. I do NOT understand charging a huge amount of cash for a cluster of bugs. I am way disappointed in Verizon.

    Okay, how could I forget to pull the battery???? I do that like twice a week for the brain toots on this puppy. I think it has dementia and forgets how to work. It’ll just sit there with the clockette spinning until I pull the battery. At any rate, the update is loading.

    Seriously people. DO NOT TRY OTA UPGRADE!
    Download the upgrade file, install it on your pc, and use Desktop Manager or loader.exe to install it.

    The OTA worked well enough. Downloading to a Mac isn’t fun, as there are extra hoops through which one must jump.I still have to do a battery pull every other day. The message app is delusional and thinks there’s a mssg in there when there isn’t. This is my 3rd Storm and they all have that same glitch. It may be related to my email program. IDK

    Just downloaded the new upgrade. Although it took awhile and I had to get rid on some games. It was well worth it! Runs faster and wakes up faster. We will see in the next couple of days how it goes.

    Upgrade installed by Verizon Tech rep on Saturday morning. The Storm will not last on the battery more than 4 hours. Tech reduced screen illumination, disabled navigator, etc. all had NO effect. Battery drains in 4 hours. I’m making my third trip back to Verizon store for assistance. FRUSTRATING. Don’t upgrade until they get this fixed.

    Okay, it’s been 10 days with the upgraded software. Storm still sucks. I hope they will realize their erroneous ways and allow us to return these sad instruments. Or, if they get the contract for the iPhone, letting us trade UP!!!!

    I hear talk of Storm II to be released. Storm I is less than acceptable. Verizon isn’t even plugging them on their ads. Walmart is selling them now. Why would anyone want to get another? I am really saddened by Verizon on the Storm venture, as well as the company’s lack of taking responsibility.

    @Holly:
    Saddened by Verizon? Listen, I know they are far from perfect, but if the hardware ain’t “right” and the software ain’t “right”, I fail to see how that is Verizon’s fault? RIM designs/builds the hardware and codes the OS. You can fault Verizon for being finnicky about what they would accept from RIM as a software build to release, and if its true Verizon nixxed the hardware including WiFi you can fault them on that, but truly if Storm is a failure the blame lies squarely on RIM.

    David,
    True that! RIM is the maker of the software and hardware. But I don’t deal with RIM. I deal with Verizon and it’s their integrity at stake. They need to back THEIR product for which I have paid. I don’t see that happening so far. Therein lies my issue.

    are you all retarded or something, you've all just posted links back to this site where's the DL icon for the verizon download…?

  • Aweidl

    k, the mighty Canadian Telus carrier together with RIM wont allow us to download and run skype, the cheapos want us to use there longdistance packages and pay through the nose for it. In order for me to run SKYPE on my BBstorm i need the verizone platform, anyone know how to get it….?
