This update works while the BlackBerryStorm is attached to your computer via a USB port, while running Internet Explorer 6 or higher. The website warns, "Until the update is complete, you will not be able to use your BlackBerry Storm. Should you unplug or cancel the update process before completion, your smartphone may be unusable and you may need to restart the update process to regain use of your device."
A RIM public relations spokesperson emailed us this statement, "The code available on the website is 188.8.131.52. For further information about updates, please touch base with Verizon, as carriers are the ones who make BlackBerry software updates available to their customers.
Which is incorrect, while perusing the BlackBerry support forum we found at that in the BlackBerry Storm Manager program you can select 184.108.40.206. You know, the one that CrackBerry leaked it its forums. This "issue" is so confusing we posted another whole article on to clarify how the BlackBerry Storm update works.
If you click the wrong version, you can install OS 220.127.116.11 that came with the Storm and loose all your data. It is very confusing and a pain in the lower touchscreen.
One forum member called Verizon and was told there will be not update until December 8.
BlackBerry Storm owners received this information in a email message yesterday:
