    It appears that the platform version on this one is 3.0.0.79 where as the Sprint and Telus are 3.0.0.76. Their release number is 339. Sprint's is 322.

    According to the notes on the site:

    It enables LBS for VZ Navigator
    App based tracking
    SMS wake up functionality.
    Audio quality optimizations
    Spell checker refinements

    If they had enabled MMS it would be practically perfect! And of course multi-pagepage texting. Those are the two things the Verizon BlackBerrys are missing. Unless you have the pearl then you've solved half the problem. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Cool! Spell checker now asks you if you're ready to send the email or not once it's compete!

    I just upgraded to the new Sprint OS, and now here I am waiting for the upgrade to the new VZ OS to finish. It's like some kind of sick compulsion that i just can't stop!

    Could you let us know if you audio quality improves after going to the new Verizon OS? I upgraded my 8830 with the Sprint 322 and didn't notice any improvement.

    Thanks

    Anyone know if this upgrade is possible OTA? My Mac can't read the .exe extension.

    I've always had good audio, and didn't notice any improvement with the latest Verizon release. What I did notice is that after I loaded it, I would only get reminders for tasks and calendar items on my BB, but no longer via the desktop. I rolled back to the latest Sprint version, and now everything else is working fine.

    Has anyone else noticed any abnormal behavior when running another Vendor's OS?

    Re: New os for verizon 8830

    To me this update does absolutely nothing. and its still 4.2.2 to boot. Doesnt fix the memory leak issue, doesnt increase the audible ringtone issue (My best workaround is having a Bluetooth Earpiece in your ears most of the time). It seems like all it does is enable the use of VZNavigator which from what I've read still doesnt work.

    So I ask again.. what does this do for me. I read the fine print via the update website but it doesnt affect me (at least) in anyway.

    OS updates must be done by wire. Sorry.

    VZNav does work with this update, however I had to go and manually change my application permissions for it to work. They still want 9.99 even with the BES data plan. Pure BS to me, and GPS still locked.
