    Now that is truely frightening...we've always suspected that not all Storms are the same and while jlevy73 and others posting here are experiencing this problem, I can state without reservation that my Storm has no BT issue when running the .14x series that have leaked to date.
    Well Stormers, there you have it...
    Are we talking about a need for customized codes here depending on which "Storm" you own? It's no wonder VZW hasn't/can't approve an update!

    Yes, that is the radio code that comes in when you transfer the CDMA from132.

    So I have v 4.7.0.148 PL4.0.0.162.

    Just changed the CDMA Out in a shrunken version of Lyrics latest beta.

    More like horrific and yes I agree that probably has something to do with not releasing an official OS yet. VZW probably has 50 testers, and 50 different results for the same OS. And that is the reason IMHO we won't see another official OS update until Storm 2 is released. That's just my opinion not based on any inside, secret knowledge.

    J, I have thought about that too...and as much as we all fear that, it is most likely true based on the situation observations

    No problem

    down load Swap A Radio Here
    Extract the .exe to your desktop (if you are on vista right click on icon and run as admin)
    Select the radio you want and launch loader

    Super easy

    That seems to have worked nicely. Will Verizon's upcoming .148 official release be the same as the .148 we presently?

    Has anyone tested a release of BB OS 5.0 to see how the volume is affected on the storm.

    If you are still having bluetooth issues, I would suggest you downgrade to .75, and then straight to .148 (without wiping)...it does something with flashing the core OS. This was suggested by some people.

    Oh and yes official and leak .148 are exactly the same

    And at this point no one outside of RIM and those with NDA's have played with 5.0. So it will be sometime before we know that answer.
