Hi Piano Man,

In my opinion, never reinvent the wheel.  If it is working for you then you might not upgrade.  However, I have found through my experience is to let the OS release be out for a few weeks and see what other folks are finding for common problems and then decided if you want to upgrade.  Either way, please take time now the back up your device through Blackberry Desktop Manager.

Thanks Doc. Thats what I was thinking. Also my Storm is set to back up every 3 days. To me the Storm is a computer that also makes phone calls so back up, back up., back up.

Good job.  When you do upgrade, you won't have near as many problems as others.

I have had several friends that are "seasoned" BB users tell me the same thing about waiting at least a month after the intial release of any upgrade.
