UPDATE: I’ve just successfully downloaded OS 126.96.36.199 using Verizon’s desktop download link. It now appears as though the OTA update will happen at 9:30 pm PST. Keep your fingers crossed or run to the nearest PC.
Forget the email notification Verizon sent out earlier this week, word is spreading fast around the Internets that Verizon is set for a massive official OS 4.7 update for the BlackBerry Storm. Here’s what we ‘know’ so far:
Verizon should be rolling out an OTA update around 12 noon (EST or PST? Good question.) PLEASE NOTE that an OTA upgrade will only work for BIS users as this feature is not BES supported.
Around 6pm, Verizon will have a desktop download of the 4.7 OS available at: http://www.vzam.net/blackberry/
Our boy Kevin has nabbed some “official sounding verbiage” regarding issues that the OS update will clean up on the Verizon BlackBerry Storm. You can find that info after the jump. The Storm Hunt continues!
