    Ok I have an update. I went back to the .90 radio code on Crackman V5 and was having serious issues. I was getting way more VSODs and reboots and could not get my browser back no matter what I did. Finally I decided to do a full wipe and re-install the my 3rd parties 1 by 1. It is a hassle but I wanted to make sure everything was good. What's a few hours anyway???!!!!

    I got to thinking that maybe since it acted up with V5 and .90 that it may have been the cause of my issues with .132. On a whim, I loaded .132 and re-loaded my browser. I went ahead and put in the APN settings but unchecked them. I re-loaded my apps 1 by 1.

    VOILA!!!! I have been steady on full EDGE all day today. I do not have any apps loaded that even try to access TCP. I use all BIS connections. The only one I miss is UberTwitter but it is supposed to be updated for BIS soon. I'll just used Twitterberry and suffer I guess.

    I have a very full week this week of travel and emails are going to hit hard. I will see what happens after a full few days and report back but if you can live without apps that need APN, this is the way to go.

    Wow, light at the end of the tunnel. Let us know how it holds up as if it does will add something in the help section to this affect because many GSM users have gone through the same pain as you. Appreciate you posting your feedback.

    Still going strong. No random reboots in over 9 hours and that is a record for me. With .90 I usually had at least 3 in that length of time.

    Also, now I understand what everyone on here talks about how rock solid Crackman's hybrids are. Changing our the sfi file makes a bigger difference in the way the overall OS performs as well, not just the reboots.

    I am happier than I have ever been with the Storm now.

    I wanted to report a few more findings. My guess is that no one is really following this thread but eventually someone will have the same problems I did and do a search. I hope it helps them then.

    Today I ran almost all day without a hiccup. I travelled from Atlanta, GA to Lexington, KY and had no issues. I held EDGE almost all day. Later in the day, around 4pm I bounced to edge and it would not come back. I continued to receive emails and Twitter so I am not sure if it was bouncing and I just missed it or what. My battery was under 20% and the phone had been on without reset for over 28 hours. I cannot remember where memory was but I am pretty sure it was in the mid to low 30s.

    I tried to regain EDGE by turning off all connections and I got a flash white screen with an error message and the phone reset. I am not sure what the error message was but when the phone came back I still had edge. I discovered when this happens, it takes the phone a few minutes and it will finally regain EDGE status and then hold it. Once it regains EDGE, it is very stable.

    I got to my hotel and had to uninstall a program so I had to do a reset. At this point I thought it might be a good idea to do a battery pull. I did this and the phone came back at edge. It does not bounce but is just steady edge. Being impatient, I tried my browser. When I did this, it is like it forces the phone to go to EDGE. It bounces a few times then is steady. I reset the phone again and tried it the same way. Browser does force the phone to EDGE and I am good to go.

    I wish there were some others that could try this as well to see if my findings are consistent. Hopefully so but anyway, I can live with what I am getting now. Having to do a daily reset to get EDGE back is not a hassle for me. Its the random reboots and VSODs that I hated. Who knows, this may not ever happen again. I am only on my first day.

    Thanks for the update! I am sure this will come in handy for others
