They will definitely release 4.1. Rumor has it this will happen any day now. Also, you can use sprint/telstra on your device if you want it now.

Latest from my sources is 4.1 for the 7250 should be out 1st week of April. It is possible sooner, but we'll have to wait and see.

Thank you for the update. i sure hope so. I have seen and posted in a thread about the Sprint version on VZW. I am just new to BB and even my company does not fully understand all the software and sync'ing relationships etc. and therefore did not want to venture down a road that I did not have good tech support on and decided to just wait for VZW's official release.

Thanks again,

The VZ OS update web page is not working at this time. Wonder if they are updating with the new software versions.

Not - It is back up and running with only 4.0

any word on the 4.1 release? coming this week at all? 4.0.2 seems to be slightly less stable than 4.0

*cough* it's available for GSM Blackberries *cough*

klwebb 04-03-2006 11:10 AM

The last I heard - late last week - from our VZW rep is that it was to start last week but now have been delayed with no new date being published at this time.

haha, i know - its just that tethering is important to me, so I need to wait for the official VZW release

owblue 04-03-2006 05:21 PM

I've been waiting for this to happen also. I was told from my rep that It was suppossed to happen in March. Not sure what the hold up is.....

you don't need 4.1 to tether :) 4.0.2 works fine.

What's your point? 4.1 is available for some CDMA devices as well and has been. It is true that 4.1 is not available from all CDMA carriers, but *cough* the same is true of the GSM carriers as well *cough*.. :smile:

any reason that he give you behind the delay? just wondering whats taking so long

owblue 04-06-2006 02:57 PM

I just emailed my business rep. I'll post when I hear back. The last I heard was sometime last month. Not sure what the hold up is, especially since other carriers have released.

owblue 04-07-2006 11:02 AM

I just spoke with my rep and was told that Verizon was waiting on some update...so it will be at least another week.

bbarnes 04-07-2006 05:03 PM

I was just told by our rep that it is going to be released on April 27th.

kmehling 04-12-2006 03:48 PM

OK so April 27th...

let's apply the Verizon Filter to that timeline...

1. April 27 + manditory unexplained month absense after initial proposed release date = May 27.

2. Add 6 days for "Compatibility testing" = May 31

3. Add another week for problems that arose during compatibility testing = June 7

4. Add 3 more days to "fine tune" the release = June 10

5. Add another 9 days because new products need to launch which yield said upgrade obsolete


Look for it on the Verizon site AROUND June 17 +/- 4 days or thereabouts.

I <3 verizon

Yeah, thank goodness I have the patience to wait for the upgrade, otherwise I'd have to deal with crappy GSM voice quality and dropped calls *cough* just to have 4.1 *cough*.

msome 04-27-2006 09:09 AM

well...
 
only two more moths +/- 4 days...
