What should I do?
Pandora issue with 22.214.171.1248
So there is poetic justice after all. I now have a preview of what to expect on Wednesday when I buy the Storm 2 and move uptown on the hardware, too! (Still can't forgive RIM for the last 6 months of drudgery with this thing). For those staying with the (1), its a helluva lot better now. In fact it almost acts like the device we all thought we we obtaining way back....
BOGO for Storm 2?
What he couldn't tell me was whether or not it would be available as a buy one-get one.
Any of you guys with VZW "juice" have any info on this?
yes you heard it Verizon bringing the double hammer out.. Storm 2 and the Google Android! Due out on October 28th!! believe me on this its a treat not a trick!
The Original Storm overwhelmed Veriz...

.328 is here!
Gosh it's cool being "official"
all the links are closed to get the new software. does anyone know any other way to get it? could someone possibly email it to me?
For Storm 1, it looks like .328 will be officially out on Monday. May be...
Update a Bit Late?
Now they can provide a somewhat "fixed" device and plant the tease that the 2 is Sooo much better, but the 1, not so bad.
Can anyone forget the lack of support for a year with the leaked improvements ignored by RIM & Verizon? I am very skeptical of their marketing, Even so,on Wednesday morning (Storm 2 release), I will fall into the trap and dedicate my original Storm to paperweight use on my desk......
I am thinking of writing a eulogy for my original Storm...I may keep the light saber app I got a long time ago on there and give it to the kids to play with
if not, I can always use another paperweight!!!
Facebook Issues on Storm
If I added up all the time I have spent installing these things
Thanks for the heads up!
It got rid of some overlapping icons and text from the last one.
Home screen preferences screen is laid out 10x better
Lost my 3G icon and back to the goofy 1XEV deal
The useless App center icon works now
Crackberry Storm2 review
Lots of info to drool over while drinking Kool-aid
"When the BlackBerry Storm hit the market, owners were staying up all hours of the night waiting in hopes of a firmware update to leak in the forums, with the aim of improving the usability of the device. With the BlackBerry S...

If VZW waits much longer for the S2, it may be too late. You figure with Google, there will be more support/apps/updates
Updates: RIM has done 2 official and Google has don...

ADD IT TO THE LIST
I made a vow. If the Storm 2 is not 10 times better than this excuse for a phone, they BOTH get a sledgehammer!!! My comparison test will show which screen shatters easier. And you know what's sad? RIM doesn't...
Weird dial pad on .167
So I finally install .167. I noticed that the dial pad is weird. The letters associated with the numbers are all mixed up, i.e. the number 2 has TY instead of ABC. Anybody know what's up?
I don't have...
Any Advice on what to say to VZW?
So I am on my 5th storm and it keeps freezing...AGAIN. Now its not even a battery or 2 pull a day, it freezes btw every application switch esp with the phone.
I called vzw and explained to them my frustrations and they FINALLY decided to at least give me an early upgrade at the ONE YEAR upgrade price which Im not happy with.
A friend of mine basically just got handed the Tour in store bc the people there just didnt even ask any questions bc they knew what was up.
My question is to everyone... should I wait until the storm 2 comes out (and i love the phone/screen and got used to the keyboard and everything) or just suck it up and get the Tour?
If there is anything I can say to the people in store to just...

This is the megaupload site. Remember to remove the RIM tools before installing.
According to alot of reviews on Crackberry, this leak is very fast with little or no bugs.
Anyone try this one yet? I am still on .191
