    for Verizon's "official" sw update for the storm or should I dl the beta that's around? I am in fact having a few issues with visual vm not really working right and a few other anoyances, nothing major though...Just wondering if dl-ing the beta is worth it.

    OK, here goes:

    1. The Visual Voicemail seldom works although I am a subscriber
    2. When Choosing to send an SMS, I select a contact and it pulls up the numbers available to send to - Often, the KB appears too, cutting off the bottom 3-4 entries making the impossible to select
    3. Lag between screens

    That's really it...A guyt at Verizon said that it would be released this week - just wondering if it's worth getting the beta now or waiting.

    the lag will definately be improved
    the KB can be "swiped"to the bottom to see all the options.also you can still scroll through them with the KB up
    not sure about visual VM...i don't use it

    would it be "bad" to ask some kind soul to PM me a reliable link to the beta?

    I'm waiting for now. I may reconsider if something official isn't released soon, like this month soon.

    It's simple really, upgrading does not guarantee that it will be trouble free. Especially if the upgrade is still in beta. Newer is not always better.

    Ok, I say this with 100% confidence. DO NOT WAIT. .75 is leaps and bounds above the original OS. Though there are still frustrations with the OS, I have not found a single one that was added or made worse by the beta.

    PM if you have any further questions or concerns.

    Happy hunting
    :)

    If you do not wait, and have problems, then we are the benefactors. You will be doing all the work, while we sit back & watch...
