    Lightbulb TMobile 8700g Upgrade Trick

    Advertisement



    I have an 8700g from TMobile and was trying to find a way to download the latest version of the Blackberry OS to my PC, only to find that -- when I clicked on the proper TMobile Link (under "My TMobile/Phone & Accessories -- and select "system upgrade" next to the 8700g picture) that all that displays is a message saying "Sorry, due to the high volume of downloads..." it can't download the file.

    After having tried at least five different times on this site and seeing the same message, I called TMobile to find out what's wrong. They said their website had a bug, and in fact the high volume message is wrong. Once you see that you are to click "F5" (refresh on that window) and keep trying that for around 5 or more tries. Eventually the "download" page will appear, and you're on your way.

    It's well worth it to do this, for those with older versions of the OS. The speed of things overall seems faster, and the famous ZEN Theme is built-in as an option.

    pretty cool. I just hit it once, and the message disappeared and I could download both handheld and new OS for my 7105t.

    Hopefully a moderator will see that this could be usefull and "stick it" to the top of the t-mobile forum on pinstack

    Is anyone having a problem with the built-in zen theme. My icons that were on the top of the page are gone (voicemail, msg, sms msg)? Any help would be great.

    So is it safe t upgrade and what benefits do you get by upgrade to the new version. And what is the fastest way to find what version I already have on my BB?
