Default Os Update/shield

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone have any clue as to when VZW will release a os update?
Seems like its inevitable and in the near future.

I want to update to the betas but dont want to have issues with unofficial software on a device I use daily for communication..
cant afford the downtime.

Also, has anyone used the invisible shield? I was looking to get one, my cousin has one for this iphone and it looks like a solid product.

THanks!

BGR in their story about the Verizon BOGO says the target date is March 31. Take that for what it's worth.

Pnico,

1. The rumors for the next OS release vary. No one knows for sure. I've heard anywhere from Mid Feb to Early March.

2. The reviews for ZAGG invisible shield vary amongst the different products. I have actually researched several different shields and so far BSE (Best Skins Ever) has had the most favorable reviews. Here are links to two reviews of the ZAGG invisible shield.

I've had an invisible shield on my iPod (an older one) for a few years and it works great. However, after watching those youtube videos the other day, I definitely wouldn't put on on my Storm. The bit about the lint on the edges is very true, something I don't mind on my iPod but would hate on my phone, and there is a bit of an orange peel effect, but in my opinion, it's not as bad as the guy in the video claims. At least it's not on my iPod. Either way, I wouldn't want to put something on my phone that could render the screen useless. :\

will the new OS be the same as the beta? or do they release the beta to figure out problems and fix them before the release of the new OS?

"the beta"? There are about a dozen different beta OSs for the 9530 out there now.

No one knows what and when VZW will release anything. By the time VZW releases an upgraded OS, there will be even more betas past that.
