    I would say it is up to you

    Does not having a camera interfere with your use of the phone? If so then I would downgrade. Does the unlock bug you are experiencing frustrate you? If so I would downgrade.

    .191 is a good OS for some (don't use the camera and don't care about BBM5), but others it is not so good. The choice really is yours since you are the only one that uses your phone

    It all depends on what you need. I do not use my camera that much, so not having one does not bother me, but if I needed one then I would downgraded to 140. Make a list of the pros and cons of the phone and see what works best for you. These leaks come with the good and the bad and just writing them down will help you make your decision.

    Smartphones are suppose to work for us, making our lives easier not to be annoying, it's sounds like you have already answered your own question, trust your instincts and do what you know will work best for you :cool2:
    When in doubt, pull the battery out!

    There is a lot of things I want that is in 191. I have tried to work with it multiple times. The last time was today and I looked down and it was rebooting and it came up with the Load Software 057. It was toast! I wanted to stay with it but my phone has to be dependable! As I said there are a ton of features I love but it has to be dependable. That is why I went back to Lyricidal's Beta6v10. To me it is kind of like why I don't think I would leave Verizon where I live. If you don't have coverage you don't have crap!!

    the hybds are really slick they just can't add all the 5.0 goodies in them. they are fast and hold memory well.

    After installing .191 (from .151) I could not wipe and return to .151 fast enough!

    I have had outstanding luck with .151, but wanted to try out the flick scrolling and threaded texts.... My Storm absolutely did not like .191 at all...nothing seemed to function correctly....proof again that all of our devices react differently...

    I'm now back w/.151...enjoying stable memory and all of my apps again!

    .151 will stay on my Storm until I trade it for a Storm 2! :arms:

    That is a tough call since most storms react so differently to each os. 8.5 was great for some, but not others. Members here have immediate choices of BBC, Lyric and OOAK to choose from. I always ran BBC's on my storm since they always played well for me.

    Yeah, some things seem faster in 151, but most work better in 191. Locking, the default browser, text correction boxes-- all are noticeably peppier in 191. On the other hand, 191 crashes from time to time for me, so when you take the boot times I wouldn't be getting in 151... it's sort of a wash. It's just a matter of whether the speed and nifty interface upgrades are enough to balance out the intermittent crashing and camera/3rd part app problems.
    .75 -> .148 -> .151 Hybrids -> v5
    Better and better!

    I'm loving 191, yes there are some glitches that need to be worked out, but the overall system is better and keeping with the times. I miss Facebook but I coping with socialscope. All of my most commonly used apps are working just fine so, i'll patiently keep 191 until 5.0 gets better. Hopefully not too long, but no turning back for me "for I have tasted of the fruit."

    Mine is working very well with .191. My biggest peeve since day 1 with the Storm is finally fixed: the damn phone feature doesn't take all day to fire up anymore. Hopefully there is no more glitching out when I try to answer calls either. The phonecall related glitches can be downright dangerous.
