Default Beta Concession - Now Running .99

Please Login to Remove!

Well, I am a man who always concedes and "keeps it real".

I was at the VZW store today getting a Curve for the wifey and I engage in a techno geek rap session with the salesman who is a huge Storm fan. As we jabbered away he showed me his Storm which had .99 load. I asked him about it voiding the warranty and he smirked indicating it did IF you didn't reload .75 before making your claim.

Soo.... JS Conyers....I must concede. He walked me over to his laptop, hooked up my Storm and after 20 minutes I was proudly running .99 in my Storm.

Honestly, havent had it long enough for a good evaluation, but right away screen orientation is noticeably better. I also like the ability to convert to FULL QWERTY in portrait mode. The keys are evidently tighter but its usable.

He is deeper into the RIM world and indicated the newer OS should be kickin out around March 31st. He didn't know if it would be .99 or higher. So the big risk taker that I am figured 2 weeks might be worth it to see what these betas are all about....

Ok. I now open the floor for all the ribbing I will be getting for my "voided warranty" rants. Here I am. Hit me up. I deserve it...

Actually, I don't think anyone will be ranting about the voided waranty. You should check out the "Beta You Than ME" forum for A LOT more info on .99, I personally have been running it since it was leaked.

Quick thoughts, great OS, still kinda buggy. Usually get one reboot per day.

You didn't void anything.
