Re: BlackBerry Storm Web Based Software Upgrades

I found this on a Blackberry Enthusiast web page over the weekend.

Whats your feeling on this? Or can someone validate this?

 


Essentially, the Verizon Storm was set to launch with an OS higher than 4.7.0.65. The boxes handed out at the Verizon media event on Tuesday in NYC (where all those reviewers picked theirs up) actually have stickers on them that show 4.7.0.82. Yet the devices were actually loaded with the .65 OS. Did you purchase a Storm today? Take a look at the sticker on your box. If you peel it off, you'll see one beneath for 4.7.0.82. Right before the Storm was set to ship en mass, a security glitch was caught in the OS that prompted a hault of shipment. With no time to release a newer, updated OS, the Storm's that made the stores for today's launch were simply a limited number of units that were reprovisioned with an older OS, version 4.7.0.65. Yada, yada, yada.. that explains shortages and the revised December 5th availability date along with the not quite silky smooth OS. Suffice to say, you can expect an OS update to storm into town soon.

Re: BlackBerry Storm Web Based Software Upgrades

It jives with what the tech support specialist told me just a few minutes ago. He thought there was both a new SW Rev AND a new "platform", but when we tried to do an upgrade, they don't show up. 

 

I know it's part of the growing pains for "early adopters", but it is disappointing to see this new device have so many issues...

Re: BlackBerry Storm Web Based Software Upgrades

There are lots of great tips on the Storm 9530 forum on Crackberry.com to help increase the speed of your device..check it out.  Some that have helped me a ton (and now my phone works GREAT) is change your settings on keyboard to:

Key rate: fast

Tap interval: 100

Hover period: 100 

Swipe sensitivity: 6

 

Also delete any applications you do not plan on using, such as VZ navigator, Visual voicemail (delete under options > advanced options > applications.

Re: BlackBerry Storm Web Based Software Upgrades

Where do I find this stuff?

 

Key rate: fast

Tap interval: 100

Hover period: 100 

Swipe sensitivity: 6

 

Is higher better or lower better? Are these delays in millseconds?

 

Arghh..

Re: BlackBerry Storm Web Based Software Upgrades

PC-ASSIST - find these settings under options > screen/keybooard.  not sure what the units are, just seem to work the best. Hope this helps.

Re: BlackBerry Storm Web Based Software Upgrades

Hi izzybb:

This was a GREAT tip!! KUDOS!!  The device has become more responsive.  However, I still feel that the Storm would be a killer if RIM went to their CORE strengths and added a SLIDE-OUT "real" keyboard somehow!  The tactile feedback is not that quick compared to a real keyboard!!

Thanks,

Thanks for clicking on KUDOS if this solved your problem!
