    The “now available” title is misleading since the update, as mentioned in the post, won’t be available until Sunday May 31st.

    “coming soon” would be more accurate but probably not as attention grabbing.

    Just got the update on my phone and I have to say it’s a definite improvement over what we’ve been force to deal with on the Storm. So far, using it put a huge smile on my face. It’s a noticeable difference in this version over .075

    Will give more updates later.

    Showed up for me. I got the upgrade notification e-mail from RIM yesterday at almost exactly 3pm eastern. I plugged in my BB to Desktop Manager, it said an upgrade was available and it started the upgrade. So it is there, maybe visit the site manually to start the upgrade?

    Yep, did that. I’m on a hosted BES so it wouldn’t let me do it OTA or via blackberry.com/upgrade. It sent me to Verizon’s site to download the file directly but their site only has the December 08 version available for download.

    Ok so here is a link to the file to use with the DM (It’s verizon’s file).

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=I0UD9FPH

    I’ve installed and it works well. Screen rotation is still very sluggish

    The ONLY issue however is that it will not connect back up with the BES. It doesn’t even try. I’m going to try a pull now to see if something will magically work. I don’t even see any connectivity arrows going so it may not be going well here :( I may have to downgrade :(

    BTW there is a work around on the web updater but if you do the work around it will uninstall all applications etc. from your phone. All you do is leave the “Application Loader Window” up with the error and click the “Check for Updates” button again. It will load a 2nd Application Loader window and it will actually prompt for update.

    Well, as of 12:51 EDT MR2 (.148) is still not offered for download via the smithmicro.com/vzw web site either, for “Personal” or “Corporate”.

    All this time and publicity for the upgrade and VZW still can’t get it right. Sad.

    Of COURSE we savvy folks have been running .148 for about 10 days already, but that doesn’t help the millions of non-geek Storm owners…

    I had some initial issues getting the software as my Storm is on Enterprise, so had to uninstall Desktop Manager, then reinstall as non Enterprise to get it to install the update. So far so good with updating, as I am suprised at the speed change in the software! FINALLY!

    I am trying to download the update for my storm, but it does not work. All i get is a box that says I need to clear up 20 MB from my storm before I could download? Any suggesstions.

    delete an app or two until you have freed up the space. I couldn’t get the OTA to work. It was prgoressing really slowly and kept freezing. The computer download worked just fine. I only had 30mb free in my app memory before the upgrade but 45.7 after. good luck!

    I did the upgrade. It took 75 minutes to get the download on VZ. Not sure why. I had to remove 19MB of space in my applications area just to get it to download. I had to delete some great apps via the desktop application. When I completed the upgrade, there was no way to get the apps back on the Storm. I did a general backup just before I did the upgrade. Good thing, as a large number of thing were missing like my custom contact ring tones. I used the full backup feature on the desktop application and those things were replaced. The applications I had to remove to get the OS to download? Gone. Had to start from scratch. That just makes no sense to me. VZ Tech support had no other solution.

    Nice features, but now my email alerts no longer produce sound. Did a battery pull, reset them again, turned volume up, still nothing. Cannot even preview the sounds… Verizon – FIX IT PLEASE!
