Another day, another BlackBerry OS announcement (and it's early in the day... we'll probably see another before the day is done!)...

BlackBerry Storm 9500 owners can now get a hold of OS 4.7.0.122 from BlackBerry.com. The download has been made available to Hutchison customers, but is of course accessible by all. If you give it a go, be sure to report back your findings in the BlackBerry Storm OS forum.

i'm usually a fairly patient person when it comes to things like this but even i'm starting to get tired of waiting, and waiting, and waiting, and ... well you know.

acedanger

the screen shot shows that this is an East Asia file download. Would it contain the English (U.S.) character set as well?

SouthernSaltine

What is the deal with all the OS problems.
Come on RIM.

Fhiz

Hey Verizon! Lets get on the ball!

but really, what the hell is taking them so long?

Rob.Newman

Please advise: This download is only for Storm 9500 users. It WILL NOT WORK on a 9530.

Why hath the forsaken us?!?!?!

dj_verse

Verizon update has to hit today.... I will be checking this site more than I already do throughout the day today and that is already about 10 times a day. Not holding my breath but it would be nice.

Clancy3434#CB

that this comment...

(and it's early in the day... we'll probably see another before the day is done!)

...means that somebody knows something about Verizon that we don't know.

kubinator

The itiliczed wording was a complete give away...

I'm going to be away from my computer all day. :-( I'm hoping I find a VZW update when I get home late this afternoon!!!

fondoo

finally! thank you, thank you, thank you so, so much!

HeroBerry

Come on Verizon, you can do it! Let's get an official for the 9530...

TheChampJT

I'll be happier when a new post says "Verizon releases OS update for the 9530!" Actually, I've been waiting for that far too long!

*Open Google Reader*
*See blog title*
*Get excited*
*realize it's for the 9500, not the 9530*

WTF GUYS.

danieljm94

my exact reaction, sans head slamming the keyboard since i hit my desk instead. i even made sure to grab my sync cable from work in hopes of this....

Rudolphe

Is there a changelog or something for this?

Wildo6882

I too got excited with the "and it's early in the day... we'll probably see another before the day is done!" quote, but through my Crackberry addiction I noticed over the past few days that CX has mentioned Telus as being in the process of some hardcore testing, so now I'm worried that this comment was directed at them and not Verizon. Here's to hoping my gut instinct is very wrong!

kubinator

Well, at least my hopes for a VZW OS release today have been dashed in a matter of minutes and not last all day for the big let down... Thanks for the reality check Wildo6882

USN Jet Mech

New Phone: $199.00

Contract and monthly access fees: $90.00

Support for new phone from Verizon: $0.00

There are some things money can buy, somethings Mastercard can buy

for all the headaches and heartaches, There is Verizon.

VZW: CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW????

jayhammy

Is it my imagination, or is EVERY blackberry except the Verizon 9530 getting official updates lately? I believe this is the 2nd OS update for the 9500. I've seen a bunch of updates for the 8900 and for others as well. PLUS, Bell's 9530!

Where's the update for the Verizon Storm 9530???? Let's go, VZW--get with the program. From what I've read on various posts all over this site, people are fed up with the lack of a good OS for the Storm. We've been given projected dates for a new OS, only to see those dates come and go.

tdine05

Good God Verizon, could you get any worse? I love the Storm and I'm not trying to be a hater, but at least with the iPhone you can get new things without having to read about them for two months.

Hopefully this is just a sign that the upgrade for the 9530 will be available soon, but this is getting ridiculous.

Annoyed@idiots

So hearing about iPhone OS 3.0 for months now with no release until way down the road isn't having to listen to all the new features without actually having it? Every OS for any phone/computer comes with months of waiting (even the iPhone).

tdine05

Good point. But iPhone users haven't had to hear about iPhone users from every other country getting an upgrade. If everyone had to wait it would be a different story. We're annoyed, that's all. Some of us don't want to install leaked OS's because it violates the warranty and can screw up our phones, so we get a little annoyed. I know you must love your BB, as do I, but I would still like Verizon to get their stuff together.

WutTheDuece

the comment of probably seeing another OS drop today makes me hope that its for VZW....although it could be for ANY BB

DigiColMedia

Apart from all the 9530 users complaining about no updates for them has anybody downloaded and installed this to their 9500 yet ???? any thoughts or comments. Is there much differance than .113. Thanks

A happy 9500 user

The $1,000,000 question:
How many 9500 users bitched when .122 leaked for the 9530?
How many 9530 users bitched when .122 was released for the 9500!

Sorry guys but I want to hear relevant 9500 comments on the .122 release and not how jealous 9530 users are. So please, stop with the complaints already.

marqeagles

If we no one complained ever, nothing would get done.

mritter88

Because clearly all of this complaining is working :-P

(disclosure: I am a 9530 owner too, *sigh*)

peeler7503

Spoke to vzw and they say that it could be middle of the month . but there not really sure. anybody got futher>>???

Rizzy09

this is torture come on VZWV we waited long enough

I can't believe Verizon & RIM.... Its a dam disgrace what's going on! I mean I love my blackberry storm its an amazing phone, and by far the best smart phone I've ever had (had the pearl & old curve). But when it comes to the the new official OS's we the verizon customers should be getting it first, instead of some off brand cell company I've never heard of in my whole dam life..... I hope this OS were waiting for is GODLY, because its been one hell of a dam wait! And I pray to the man above that the "storm 2" doesn't come out in september because ill be furious!

nick13b@msn.com

im on bell and i got my os update yesterday and i still cant figure out what it does cause honestly i think it only slowed down my phone...wait...now i just realized that it fixed the accelerometer so now it works quite nice...other than that idk man....

S.Trooper

Think the issue you 9530 guys have is that there is only Verizon you are relying on whereas 9500 users have carriers all over the world!

If I remember right, I think I've installed OS releases from Holland, Sweden, Eastern Europe and now East Asia! If I were to rely on an official release from Vodafone UK then I would still be on an ancient OS too.

jayhammy

then how does that explain the update for Bell? They're CDMA.

kbrosnihan

"Verizon"

Just had to make sure it was said one more time in this post... this post about the 9500...

(Verizon customer, Storm owner[9530], and yes I am a VZW Storm OS-aholic in waiting.)

French Touch

howdy from the land of the really free,

just installed today the update
great one actually, whenever u 9530s are gona have your own, ur gona cry!
fast, finally can use the 'home' or 'blackberry' button for its intended use, that is go to the menu and not background apps... so it is finally working fine

camera responds just fine too

but the best improvement i can notice till now is the battery life, ive been using texts, calls, mails, lil of intenet and gps for about half an hour and i'm still at 65% of battery!

all those updates finally have a purpose and i hope an end...

enjoy when it comes out fellas and till then keep on fucking up iPhones !

Peace to all

I hope that VZW reads these pages. I ahve been told by 6 different CSR's 6 different answers on when we will get an official OS update for the Storm. I am fed up. I pay too much money each month and each year to be LIED to. This is a multi- billion dollar company that can not get their shit together enough to give out the correct info to its own clients! I have been with VZW since they were Bell Atlantic Mobile and this is the end of the line.

davesax36

I wish there was somewhere else I could go to satisfy this addiction. I'd leave verizon if I could REALLY get better signal/service from another provider, but they've been so good at charging me way to much for so long, I just can't bring myself to leave. maybe we can start a verizon "battered wireless user" clinic or something. I just updated to .113 and things are better, but i've got some issues. I just can't believe how much we pay for this stuff and still seem to be the last ones to get the cool new updates/gadgets.

ok, I'm done. I seriously do like my storm, by the way.

Jeremyg729

What is the latest software for Verizon - I'm still running 4.7.0.75 which as I told the guy from Verizon I spoke to earlier "is a sucky operating system" - Does anyone have any insider scoop as to when Verizon will be releasing an update?

ANCUTZA

what about storm users 9530?
can we use the same upgrade at the 9500?

BigNutSack

the OS upgrade is coming "this month"

BigDog353

Do not believe a word any Verizon CSR tells you or your wife. They do not know anything about any updates and if they do they are not telling anyone anything!

jdj5454

Will this work for the Storm 9530 also?

Jeremyg729

I went on Blackberry.com and noticed on the dropdown menu to download software there is no option for Storm 9500 or Storm 9530. It just says "Blackberry Storm!" is there a chance that by 9500 they mean the 9500 series (which would include the 9530) much like they have done in the past with updates for the Pearl and other phones.

Just something to ponder. Anyone have any insite into this??
