    What Storm OS are you running

    I know there is much discussions about bugs in the Storm OS. Put it simply was it put out before it was ready, some say yes, others say no. Since I was using the BB Bold (simply the BEST qwerty SmartPhone available today) when the storm launched, I was immune to the initial quirks others had to get through. Today there are a number of beta OS's available so if you are running a different OS that the stock Verizon one share your thoughts.

    I am running OS 4.7.0.99 and the last count in the wild was OS 4.7.0.106. Indications are strong for a new OS update coming that will provide fixes and improvements for all.
    My PDA & SmartPhone History: Palm Vx; M505;TungstenT; NX60; iPaq 1910; I700; Treo 600; hx4700; MPx220; hw6515, Treo 700w, XV6700,, Treo 700p, Moto Q Black, Moto Q9h, BlackBerry 8310 & BlackBerry 8820, BlackBerry Bold, BlackBerry Storm 9530; Droid Incredible; iPhone4; Samsung Captivate; Samsung Fascinate; Droid X, Droid2 Global, Droid X; Droid Incredible. Funny how the familiar is where you end up in the end.

    I am running .103 and it is absolutely the best beta OS I have run yet. I have no issues at all with it. Web is quick, orientation chages are quick, no errors of any type (that I have found at least), no random reboots. Scrolling is much quicker and effective. Battery life is fantastic. I do miss the "call log" button, instead of just the "call" button which is now the same as pushing the green call hardware button. The "call log" button went away with .99 I beleive. There is a supposed "gold code" out there that some lucky people have been testing and it is supposed to make the Storm amazing (I think dynamic scrolling is part of it). I have run 75, 85, 86, 90, 99, 103 so far. No hybrid OS's yet.

    im a convert from a sammy i730 and am running stock software in my storm. I am used to a slow software since winmo 5 was a slug. I dont like the reboots every other day and I havent been able to successfully get the contacts over to the bb yet, but I do love this thing. I do need greater stability and would like to get the contact info over not just the phone numbers as the verizon store did. Beta is just too quirky for me to do, I need a stabil platform thus is the reason for reading here and bb, and crackberry forums. Thanks all.

    Running 103.
    Got the phone and immediately wiped it. Installed 103.
    My reference frame is 103. So far, no issues.

    the latest is 114 but it has some nasty bugs so people have created hybrids which combine code from 114, 99, and 90 I beleive. I am running 109 now for a few weeks and it is pretty good. 103 was definitely the best for me so far and I have loaded that on about 5 Storms for other people with no issues. I may go for the 114 hybrid tomorrow...

    not sure on the gold code, but i am now running the 114 v2 hybrid and it is wicked! the new new edit/cut/copy/paste function is sweet (makes iphoners jealous!). go to the blackberryos.com forums and join - easier than deciphering all of the garbage on the CB forums.

    Thumbs up

    they're up to 114 v3 now and I think its the best yet. Less mem loss than v2 Battery may be better too. I agree the new edit tool is sweet. That was one of the few things I hated before.
