Default VZW Software update for the 8130

Please Login to Remove!

It's the same as US Cellular so I don't know if you want to post a sticky.

Thanks for finding/posting...

Figures that Verizon would be the only carrier to release an update that isn't an update.

Can Verizon have slower server? I updated to their OS but like others said nothing new that I can tell. It seems fine and I have no issues with it but I am wondering what took them so long? I have had the update for weeks now granted it was not from Verizon. It works and all I care about.

its not just verizon lots of carriers are slow getting out updates. Nextel was always the worst.

installed the newly posted verizon .97 over my .60 and the frames per second on video recording dropped to an avergage of 8 (had been 14 on older .60 version) i am going back to .60 now to get the higher video quality on my recordings. too bad rim was unable to keep it the same or better when upgrading software versions.
