BB Storm OS Software

Member

I bought my Storm at the end of April, 2009. I checked the software version and it is v4.7.0.75. When I tried to upgrade to the latest sotware, it tells me that there are no upgrades available. Can anyone tell me what the latest version of "official" software is. Not any leaked software. If there is a better version out there, how would I go about getting it? any help is greatly appreciated.

I also downloaded the new softwear update last night, via the computer. Several things that I've noticed. It eliminated my contacts. I'll have to go into a Verizon store and have them download them from my old phone back into the Storm. I've also noticed that there is only Messages now and not a separate button for email. I can recieve emails and it shows my email address but when I go to reply or try to send a new one it says that my email is not configured???. It does seem faster with the Browser and I like the portrait full keyboard. Hopefully, this upgrade will solve some of those persistant problems we've all been having.

"I have tried to download the new software and my phone does not have enough application memory left. I dont want to delete apps. in order to free up space."

 

I had this same issue last night while trying to do the OTA upgrade.  I finally gave up and called tech support to get the update site www.blackberry.com/update.  I beleive you can also update through the desktop manager.  This ran much faster and did not need to store the upgrade image on the phone.
