    Some people are finding that Telus and Bell's 4.7.0.76 is better than Verizon's .75. It does have a few more fixes but is by no means loads better. It could make your device run better. Also, since Telus and Bell have Officially launched the 9530, .76 is NOT a beta.

    I'm not sure what is wrong with .75 but I wouldn't expect huge changes in .76.

    I have a Telus Storm, and it runs like a so slow. That is the only thing that is starting to really bother me about this phone. Everything else i've got used too, it's just the delay, and trying to get it to go in to portrait mode from landscape.

    In reading threads on more than one forum and reading reviews the main complaint people have is the speed of the OS. Sometimes the thing just hangs. It was the biggest ding about the Storm in the iPhone vs Storm contest, really the only major complaint by all of the judges. They nitpicked about other stuff but the lagginess was the major thing. Maybe they'll fix that but I'm waiting until they do. It would drive me nuts coming from a pearl.

    installed .76 on computer and tried upgrading to from .75 to .76. DM sees the new .76 but when i choose it, it says no new files needed. Guess you have to downgrade to .65 first to upgrade from 75 to 76

    tried deleting the vendor.xml, and running the launcher located in crogram files/common files/rim/app loader?

    hmm, when i upgraded to .76, the DM way did not work for me, but the loader did... I would also try removing and whatever else exists in the control panel from your machine and dont launch DM, only launch the Loader.exe in that path...

    I had .76 but my phone wouldnt' charge if I was running 76.

    The bugs will get worked out....all the phones that are new have had issues whenthey first were released, this will get fixed too....and then when there's a new device there will be complaints about that too.
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?

    You need to have your Internet connexion turned off for the DM to not try and upgrade you to .75 instead of .76 if you have a verizon storm.

    So any idea when we could expect another OS upgrade? I have
    .75 already but looking forward to the next upgrade.
