The most up to date is .75. You can however try to load different OS's on your phone using leaked and hybrid versions.

Keep in mind that if you do decide to upgrade your current OS that Verizon may not support it if you go into a Verizon store, and that if you do not backup your files you will lose them.

Read the stickies on the storm home page and you will get an idea of what I am talking about and you will also have step by step instructions on what you need to do should you decide on upgrading.

Welcome to the world of Blackberry! I upgraded the software to the beta unofficial .132 and soon came back to having a slow phone on .75. Called Verizon and they helped me regardless of the update and got me back down to .75. I liked .132, but there were several issues with the software. It made the phone faster and increased the battery life, but there were too many issues. Just be sure not to complain about the slowness or the software on the phone or you will have people say "The phone must not be for you."

Zerog, it says that it is for the 9500 only, not the 9530. So I don't think they can update it unless they have the 9500, in which case they are in the wrong forum

Being that he has the 9500 listed and it seems most of the time no one updates their profile: here is the 9530: http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...ilanguage.html

Is this for the Verizon Wireless users? Cause I would love to upgrade to a faster and better OS.

Anyone with a 9530, or the other one is for anyone with a 9500. Just follow the instructions on how to upgrade.
