    Question New 7100g with ver 4.0.2

    Advertisement



    Hi all,
    Also new here, just got the 7100g and here in MX the provider is TelCel and they are way behind the times when it comes to software, I noticed the 4.2 has many more features. I would like to know if I can upgrade to another service providers OS or do I need to wait on TelCel to come out with thier new version?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~hi dan, welcome to the stacks, from my understanding you need to wait for the the provider to upgrade the software due to the provisioning that must be done on the providers part, if you try using another providers os, your phone might not work at all, but I have heard and read some posts on this site that did mention something about using a different os to get the themes they wnated on there phone. Someone will come along and correct me if I'm wrong

    There is no OS 4.2 for the 7100g only for the Blackberry 8100 Pearl.

    You can download 4.1 here:
    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...E4F82F9F00E7D4

    Since this is not your provider after it downloads Install it on your PC
    Then Do a search on your PC for "Vendor.xml" and delete it.

    Now connect your BB to the PC and Start Desktop manager and it will prompt you to update.

    Dan Camacho, Welcome to PinStack.

    And after you install the new OS, you will need to go to Options/Advanced Options/Host Routing Table and do a Register Now from the Menu.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    Are you sure this upgrade will not effect my service or my phone? Because the file says Cingular and I have TelCel...

    Well, I waited for the answer... But, it was to slow in coming, or I was to impatient... lol

    I loaded as you said with no problems, and now I have the new themes that I downloaded.. thanks to you all for your help...

    Nope, won't affect your plan or anything else, but if you call customer care, don't tell them what version you are using unless they ask.
