Default Verizon Releases 4.5.0.138 For 8830 Devices!

Please Login to Remove!

Saw that link real quick on Crackberry and my heart almost stopped. First thing I saw was "Verizon Releases" then ".138" (didn't even see that huge pic of the 8830 haha).

just thought it was funny how obsessed we all are with getting this new firmware and how the mind selectively chooses what it wants to see. sorry if i wasted your time.

You thought 4.5 was released for the Storm? You know the Storm runs on 4.7, right?

In addition, you put 8830 in the thread title

jsconyers -

get off the guy's back. PearlinSen admitted right from the beginning that he had misread the link title and that was the whole point of this thread. He thought it was funny (and so do I actually) that everyone is always so anxious for the latest OS to come out that he jumped to conclusions that were completely incorrect.

You immediately jumped to the conclusion that he didn't know what he was talking about, but if you read the thread a little more closely you might understand what his point was.

Actually, I know what the tread is about. It's about 4.5.0.138 for the 8830. I pointed out that there was a thread already on the topic, he could have searched for the OS number and seen that there is already a thread going on this EXACT SAME TOPIC, other than creating a new thread, thus cluttering the forums for others who actually do use the search feature.

Furthermore, I was not the one that pointed out that it was posted in the 9500 section. However, why would anyone post an OS release for the 8830 in a 9500 forum? I hardly see anywhere in the thread where I was on the OP's back. You immediately jumped to the conclusion that I do not know what this thread is about, when, in fact I do.

My initial point is that this thread is a waste of time and space as there's already a thread on it. Also, there is a sticky thread with of the same OS from another carrier which also has the Verizon release discussion taking place there too. How many places do we need to discuss this, really?

If you knew what it was about then why did you ask if the OP knew what operating system was used on the Storm? It was obvious that was part of the initial oversight on his part.

If it was so obvious, then why did he put 8830 in the thread title? Why did he post it in the 9500 section? Again, just a waste of time. Just like this little debate you and I are having.

Agreed. I guess we can agree to disagree.
