New Copy and Paste functions for BlackBerry Storm as OS .112 leaks out?
A good boxer will discover his opponent's weakness and continue to jab away at it until he is victorious. The BlackBerry Storm has taken one of its strong points vs. the iPhone3G, cut and paste, and has apparently improved upon it. Instead of using multi-touch to highlight the text that you want to copy or edit, the user places his finger on the area that is to be edited and a gray, rectangular box appears. The box scrolls around with your finger to allow you to target the exact text and once that is done, you press the appropriate button and viola, you are done.

At the same time, we can tell you that just a few days after we wrote about the latest unofficial OS for the Storm 9530, another leaked version has appeared. The new upgrade is labled 4.7.0.112 and once again, because it is not coming directly from RIM or Verizon, we caution you that it is risky to download it on your Storm. However, if you did successfully upgrade your Storm to .112, let us know what changes you've noticed.

When will Verizon Wireless actually come out with the official update. I am not able to do these beta versions due to having a mac.

Also voids your warranty, so best of luck with that.....................................I believe there's a saying and it goes a little something like "patience is a virtue." Maybe that would help.

Since you can always wipe your phone back to .75 how would it void you warranty? I don't think they can track that, can they? I have .109 on my phone and just want to make sure I understand

It all depends on how damaged your phone becomes. Ive had customers come in with a error code 501 and its from loading the unofficial updates. The phone throws codes and each one represents a certain problem. When WDTS views the error code, it will show what a 501 code means and bam, warranty is up and over. Just be careful guys.....Ive already seen a handful of customers who have damaged their phones with these updates and it kills their device. nick315 = Its not up to vzw to release these updates.....its up to RIM.
