According to the sales rep at our local Verizon Store, BlackBerry Storm owners will get a
message "at the end of this month or beginning of next month.

Telus has already launched their BlackBerry Storm update from the BlackBerry website

The update adds a portrait on-screen keyboard and fixes over thirty bugs/glitches. One such bug is the one that caused the BlackBerry Storm to freeze when using voice dialing and a bug that caused the multicolored dots across the entire screen. The firmware update also will bring some improvements and new functionality.

For a full list of all the fixed bugs, please see the original article on BlackBerry Storm Update

Update on Update May 29: It is official BlackBerry Storm Update version for Verizon customers will be available on Sunday May 31.

If you have not gone through a OTA update before
and would like to know how it works, we wrote an article about that
during the first official Verizon BlackBerry Storm
update. Since data and voice networks work separately, the OTA will
not interrupt a voice phone call.  You'll receive a notice about the
OTA update and then you will be asked to reboot your BlackBerry Storm. The update will take a few minutes while the files are updated over the air.

If your BlackBerry Storm is off or out of range when the OTA is pushed, you will be contacted again later.
