Official OS upgrade for Storm 9530 issued by Bell, but with no installer
In a confusing move, carrier Bell has released an official upgraded OS for the BlackBerry Storm 9530. The build is version 4.7.0.122 which is a leap from the last officially released 4.7.0.75 for the 9530 from Verizon and RIM. Recently, a leaked version of the software, .113, was considered good enough to be the next official release as we reported. The confusing issue with the .122 is that Bell did not include an installer with the software which means that at first, to download this on your Storm, you had to be a Bell customer and use Desktop Manager on your PC. Normally, anyone could have gone over to the BlackBerry web site and pick up the new OS there, but without the installer, non-Bell customers and other had to rely on other to pass along the OS from the cache on their PC. So now we have more questions to ask such as, why did Bell leave out the installer? When is Verizon going to issue their own OS upgrade? Early reports claim that the device runs faster and the browser is snappier. If you have downloaded .122, let us know what changes you've noticed in your Storm, good or bad.

Why would Blackberry need to release an upgrade on the Storm? It's already perfect IMO. Blackberry just needs to cancel their other releases and just make Storms. In fact Verizon should stop service on all phones except for the Storm to encourage the cellphone community to move over to this AMAZING phone. BB STORM FTW!

theres this thing, that some people use every so often, called sarcasm? maybe you've heard of it? if not, i suggest you go to a local library and read up on it. As for the update, The Storm seems like a great phone, just had so many problems you would of thought that motorola would of released it

Have either of you guys actually used a Storm aside from a launch version in some mall that had 8 different apps running? Yeah, I thought not.
