    I have never had any signal issues on 5.0.0.140. I am on VZW as well.

    If none of the various radios/hybrids are working well for you, the issue may be signal strength. There is a new Radio Saver app out that may be of assistance to you: http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/s...our-radio.html.

    Have you had signal strength issues with prior VZW devices (presuming that you are in the same area now as you were then)? Or is this your first VZW device?

    I use the BB Browser, but folks (see, e.g., olta777) have indicated that Opera Mini works great on 5.0.0.140.

    I do not think that the theme has any effect on radio/signal strength. However, not all themes play as well with 5.0.0.140 as others, and reverting back to Precision Zen has been a fix/workaround for folks with some theme and app issues.

    Please let us know how it goes! Welcome to BBOS!

    i guess i should say its more of a data problem than signal? its weird, i usually have a gd signal never have any probs with drop calls, it just switches to 1x alot so i cant get internet. it was better when i was on 148 but the rest of my phone hated 148. 151 started giving me the 1x and battery probs but my phone is so much faster and better all around, and memory is awsome, i guess my only real problem is keeping 1XEV all the time so my internet connection is better

    Have you checked the VZW coverage maps or talked to a local VZW rep? You may be in an area where 1XEV is not available or spotty.

    Alternatively, from what we know about the Storm, you may have a hardware issue unique to your device. If you are in a 1XEV area, you may need to consider having VZW replace the device.

    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.

    Is everyone else noticing a change in the background brightness when going from portrait to landscape. Landscape dims quite a bit but when back to portrait a few seconds later it goes to the normal setting. I looked around for a setting but didn't see anything. Just thought I would ask, thanks
    When in doubt, pull the battery out!

    Have you tried "straight" OS .151 (not hybrid)? I have been the most satisfied with it over any of the various OS's & hybrids I've tried, and like you I've tried them all...

    Radio/data seems very stable ...apps and browser seem quick...

    Does socialscope work on 5.0.0.140? I believe this program supplants FaceBook and MySpace.

    Then again, i use neither, so take this with an even larger grain of salt than usual with respect to the nonsense spewing forth from my mouth!

    No. Facebook does not work with 5.0. I am not sure why but it is not the only app that is not 5.0 approved (that is not a technical term). Apps like QuickPull and Blackberry App world, to name a few, do not work. Blackberry App World not working makes me chuckle mfg:... So they went on the To Be Reinstalled list ... hopefully i get to throw it away soon

    While facebook does not work you can still access it through the mobile site which I believe is m.facebook.com (I think).
