    Smile Unlocked 8310 can't update past 4.2

    Advertisement



    I bought an unlocked 8310 off of Ebay. I have Tmobile which has ver 4.5 but their choices of Blackberrys does not include the 8310 so I can't update it past 4.2. When you turn it on it says SunCom. Is there any way I can update it?

    This link provides an OS that will work on your 8310. Just follow these instructions for upgrading in the Technical Support Blog link in my signature and you should be good to go!

    Post back if you have any questions.

    "This link" takes me to Vodaphone which I get doesnt matter but it is also for Chinese. Doesnt seem like I should download that.

    And thank you so much for replying I will be so totally ecstatic if it works.

    Another thing I forgot to mention when I go to Firewall it is enabled with a little red lock. Will this affect anything?

    Every version of the OS has English, so it willl work. You should be able to disable the firewall. If not we may need to dig a little deeper and remove some IT policies.
