Verizon would not warn of shutting down leaks, nor would they care that would be RIM only. And at that, RIM wouldnt tell VZW nor woudl VZW inform its users. they would just shut it down. I would ask your source for more clarification on this

I think his friend at verizon is quoting an email they got from RIM if this is true...not an email FROM verizon....just my take
hmmm.. I will delve deeper.. but i didnt get an email.
No BBM update
Hmm interesting. What about users who have versions higher than .33
