Verizon gearing up for the rollout of BlackBerry OS 10.3.2.840

On Verizon and wondering when you'll officially be getting the BlackBerry 10.3.2 update? If so, you might not have long to wait, especially if you're a BlackBerry Classic owner. Looking at the Verizon devices support site, they've started updating all of their BlackBerry 10 devices such as the BlackBerry Classic, Z10, Z30 and Q10 to show OS 10.3.2.840 as coming soon.

Right now, it seems as though only the BlackBerry Classic is able to download it directly from BlackBerry servers so if you're looking to get it on another Verizon device, you'll have to wait until it goes live through Verizon. Of course, if you're familiar with using autoloaders or updating your device manually you can also do that as the files have now been posted in the CrackBerry Forums for all.

Thanks, Thurask and mainely_linux!
