I followed this up with VZW and RIM, and thought I was making progress until the RIM tech support rep gave me instructions to download what turned out to beÖthe same OS release I already have (7.1.0.580). Located a few more people in the NYC trip-state area with Blackberry devices who also found this app didnít work for them.
