Verizon ships first BlackBerry Storm firmware update

By on December 5, 2008, 4:24 PM
Verizon Wireless has released the first RIM BlackBerry Storm firmware update, raising the OS version to 4.7.0.75. The easiest way to get it right now is through the BlackBerry Desktop software, which will automatically check for, find and install the new version. However, those unwilling or unable to connect to their PCs can wait for an over the air update later today.


The update addresses several bugs found in the previous application version, from problems with the accelerometer lag and touch screen accuracy to the sudden changes in volume when using a wired headset and more. The device is also being updated abroad, with Bell Canada reportedly distributing OS version 4.7.0.76 and European Vodafone Storms now running 4.7.0.78.

I just bought my storm tonight and the software installation disk, does not auto update to the version listed here in this article. I'm thinking that the auto updates have not been put out yet. I've also searched on google.Love the phone though, its more than I expected.
