    Consider the main reason I say this: RIM is PUSHING for an across-the-board release of 5.0 - many enterprise customers are now on BES 5.0; and without a 5.0 OS on the device; many of the new features cannot be taken advantage of. RIM wants 5.0 out, they are NOT going to hold back waiting for Joe Programmer to release his latest version of "Super Icon Hockey"

    And frankly, if 5.0-native devices are set to launch sometime soon, i'd say it's high time Verizon gets to testing (and passing) a 5.0 build.

    You couldn't have stated it any better. Holding back an OS because developers aren't stepping up doesn't make sense to me. Plus the new JDE has been issued for OS 5.0 so there really is no excuse for many of these apps to still not be working. I say release 5.0 officially and let developers fix their apps. If not someone else and they will lose out on business.

    I could remember how long it took VZW to test and pass 4.7.0.148.
    I remember we all had it for a few weeks.

    If IRL testing is getting these newer builds sometime this week, then we are looking at a minimum of 3-4 weeks before they could possibly be approved for release as an official OS.

    This also would mean that network testing has been going on for quite some time already and that it is due to pass network testing. I won't say that it passed because if IRL testing doesn't have it yet, then it hasn't passed network testing yet.

    All this is good news for us either way. One, it means that a leak is getting close as once it is in the hands of the IRL testers, it tends to make it out. And 2, if it in the hands of IRL testers, it means that it is a decent build. So we have 2 things to be happy about.

    I would just like GSM connection to work the way it should with the APN settings set. If not then up for sale it goes. Us unlocked Storm users have been waiting for a good GSM radio programming since this phone came out.

    The thing is.. The GSM radio in the 9530 works flawlessly.. there are too many people trying to use it on US GSM frequencies which it is not made to do. it was made for European frequencies
