Storm 2 OS Version

What is the latest Storm 2 OS version?  Is there a place to go to easily find this info?  I've searched the RIM site, and it's not intuitively obvious (to me, at least).

 

Thanks again,

Re: Storm 2 OS Version

Thank you for the prompt responses.  It's a 9550.  As a relatively newbie to BB, I was confused (and I guess I still am) by nomenclature and the different meanings, e.g., OS 5.0.0.320 and the package version 5.0.0.497.

Re: Storm 2 OS Version

Most Blackberry users tend to refer to the "apps" version, which when reading an OS filename, is routinely the last set of numbers.

 

For example:

 

9550AMEA_PBr5.0.0_rel497_PL4.2.0.124_A5.0.0.320.exe

 

That number in red, will corrrespond on your device to the Options > About screen, third line down that states "v.5.0.0.320"
