    Hello Everyone,
    This is my first time actually posting on a any forums but i use the heck out of em and I appreciate you alls help since the Storm has been out. I am using a 9530 Storm and I have used the forums here to stay up to date for quite some time now and i figured i would put my input in on this thread. I have been using the Storm for about 4 months now and so far i like it. So if i dont do this Forum stuff right let me know.

    OS history:
    --I went from .75 - .90 - .114 - V3 Hybrid - .122 - .148 - .151 and now am using ShrinkOS .151 .
    --I am probably going to try the BBCM .151 hybrid tommorow.

    My Experiences:
    I have been using .151 since it was released on the Spanish blackberry site and so far i give it %60 approval

    .151 LIKES:
    --Transitions (ok but not needed) and no issues with them
    --My memory went from about 15-18mb down to almost nothing with .148 and now .151 it is staying above 20mb up to 39mb
    --Quick (It is very responsive and Portrate/Landscape works well
    --Doesn't reboot itself (.148 did this a bit)
    --Verizon network coverage seems strong (when working), .148 was close but i would drop calls at places i shouldn't. (I do have alot of people say they can't hear me well though even if i have full service)
    --My themes work well on it, I use the PRO V3 themes and love them.
    --All my Apps function on .151 (I use BIS, Gmail, Facebook,BluffMyCall,Google Voice,Weathereye Touch, Visual Voicemail, Youtube, CBS News, Thats what she said, oregon trail, The hockey news, bb app store, Slacker, google maps, Pattern lock, Pandora, Opera Mini, Lots of little games.
    --My camera works fine, Video also
    --Keyboard is good with minimal lag (.148 had lots of lag)
    --Battery lasts normal as expected due to usage
    --Emails work fine, Gmail app and BIS and Redirector
    --SMS and MMS is fine

    .151 DONT LIKES
    --Dont like the phone keypad not able to drag up, (but there is a button )
    --Dont like the Radio, it goes to 1x alot and i can turn it off and on and it comes back to EXV full bars, People say i sound like im cutting out, I have been having a lot of UDP errors in apps ex.(Visual VM, BluffMyCall, Opera, BB Browser, WeatherEye Touch.) Seems that I havent found that perfect radio yet.
    --Dont like the lag time to lock the BB, havent had a quick lock on any os i tried.
    --Dont like how my Alarm Clock keeps having the alarms audio come out of the Handset and not the speaker so it doesn't wake me up.
    --Dont like how the Alarm Clock Snooze button doesnt work most of the time, it will not go off again after the first time.
    -- A couple times I had he touch screen part not work but the buttons work and the os was responsive, batt pull fixed.

    Issues I could use help with:

    -- My main things are the Alarm audio not consistently going through Speakerphone

    -- ! My Storm seems to work fine when i do a Bat pull and then about a couple hours later i look at it and the Visual Voicemail says "Unable to Establish connection to the mailbox. Problem is usually Temporary and would i like to call my mailbox." I HATE THIS Err, when this happens my WeatherEye will not work says Data Unavailable, and my Browser sometimes wont work, Bluff my call says unable to open UDP Port and opera also. Google Voice still works, Calls work, sms and mms work, slacker works. Im kind of clueless. Sometimes i turn off Radio and back on and it fixes it, sometimes that only fixes WeatherEye but not Visual VM. A batt pull is a for sure fix %100 but it will break soon after it comes back up. Sometimes i can hold power key and back on and it works sometimes not. The radio sometimes seems to go 1x and not EXV sometimes when this happens, i reset the radio and it goes back to EXV but the VVM and same UDP errs.


    Thanks for all yours help and keep it going!

    Good to have another fellow Nashvillian around here


    I haven't had the alarm issues you have had. And I use the alrm feature every day. I am running BBC's 7.1.4 151.

    Maybe someone can chime in that has had alarm probs.

    Welcome to BBOS!

    Hey chilliwater,

    I was running the trial beta version but I had no problems. Maybe try deleting the app its self and reinstall it.
