    I would be curious to see what your settings were for Mobile Network Options.
    If you navigate your BB to Manage Connections>>Mobile Network Options,

    Data Services-On

    Mobile Network- should read Verizon Wireless

    Network Selection Mode -This is conditional; If your SIM is installed it is defaulted to Automatic. However you can remove the SIM and select Home Only.

    Network Technology-1XEV

    Verify your settings please.

    I've been running 5.0 pretty much since it came out. For me, without question, this is the best radio I've run on my storm. I'm with verizon and I'm running the stock theme which I've now gotten used to and like the new shortcuts for connections and profiles. Opera is awsome and the apps I run work without issue. Just to name a few: berryweather, shortcutme, quicklaunch (reset works), accelodex, actionpad, datavault, bblight, berrypopup, facecall, pocketinformant, poynt w/google maps, visual arts, and ubertwitter. Actually that might be all of them. I'm liking 5.0 so much that I probably won't even try crackman's new hybrid and I've tried them all..

    I can't say that I have. My only other thought on this would be to verify a known place that you are sure has great reception.

    If your device seems to be functioning correctly in a location known for having good service then at times has inconsistencies in a location that you generally frequent, then you may be able to pinpoint the answer that way.

    Interesting little finding I wanted share with all of those still on 5.0.

    Special thanks to Catstide for pointing this out.

    As many have figured out the hard way, themes do not play nice with 5.0. However, thanks to Cat there is a good workaround that I've tested all day.

    There is an app called BB alerts which when installed gives you audible and visual notifications of all incoming emails, sms, bbm, etc. Two important notes:

    1. BB alerts notifies you every one minute instead of instantly.
    2. BB alerts and Berry Buzz do not work well together. So you must disable Berry Alerts for this to work. At least I had to.

    So hopefully others will have the same success as not having 3rd party themes kinda sucks.

    Hey Guys,

    sorry for being a bit lazy. I read through a couple of pages through this thread but couldn't find the answer.

    Is there already a fix that will make the Facebook app work on OS 5?

    Appreciate the help!!!!

    As of now Smiler, I have not seen any 5.0 user having success with Facebook working with this OS.

    Be sure to keep checking in.
