    Ok, so I woke up today and waited for a call which never came. I called VZW back and spoke with a VZW tech rep on the RIM side...he said that they are aware of this problem and are working on getting it corrected( I asked if this ment that they are close to an Official OS relesase and they had no comment on this)...the rep also proceeded to advise me that we should not use our blackberries to access "sensitive information"( I proceeded to advise him this is bogus seeing as VZW alone has account sensitive apps that they offer in the app zone i.e mobile banking & myverizon). Pretty much all I got was a run around and no information about what was actually being done to fix this problem. I did ask about 5.0..he said that it is not as vunerable as the 4.7 but since it is not official there is still some slips in the browsers security.

    I would have been surprised if they gave you an actual answer.

    Lol I know. I worked for VZW customer service and anytime someone would call in with problems with their blackberry I would refer them to this site...well that got me in trouble haha for some reason they like to keep everything a big secret.

    1 would think that RIM would skip the usual carrier bs and somehow push this out as an ota update. I hate to say it but this is 1 area in which Apples way is better; all updates are pushed through iTunes and I'm sure the various carriers have no say so.

    Agreed. RIM needs to man up and just push out the necessary updates.

    Just to play devil's advocate for a bit... What do you think would happen if a RIM or a carrier released an OS that had some sort of bug that didn't work well with a carrier's network. Maybe resulting in poor signal or no MMS... I would think the backlash would be bad and everyone saying why did they release a crappy OS. It's the same thing we've seen with the OS 5.0 leaks.

    Could there be another solution other than releasing an OS?

    I wouldn't want RIM to release OS's blindly but some sort of security update would be nice...but maybe not possible?
