    Updating OS without service?

    Advertisement



    So I'm still waiting to get the unlock code for my 8310, and I'm getting a bit antsy. Should I just update the OS now, or would there be problems if I did without any service?

    I would wait until you get the unlock code just to be safe. You won't be able to get your browser/service books sent as your device will still be locked to the other carrier.

    That makes sense, but would I need the service books yet? I assumed I would unlock it first, then pop in the SIM and download the service books. Am I right?

    No, you need to log on to your BIS and send the service books from there. If the device is still locked, you won't be able to do that and will have no browser or push email ability.
    Upgrading the OS now could compromise that and I would just be patient and wait
    Who is your carrier?

    I'm planning to use it with Tmobile. I'm still a little confused on why it would stop me from unlocking it first, and then logging into my BIS account and sending the service books.

    I haven't done this in a long time.

    Oh, it is locked to AT&T.

    Edit: I'm not trying to be a stubborn jerk, I really just don't understand why upgrading first would stop me from sending the service books.

    Because it's still locked to ATT so the TMo service books would not be able to go through until you unlock it.

    Re: Updating OS without service?

    Here is how I THINK the process would go:

    1. Upgrade OS
    2. Unlock with the code
    3. Put in sim card
    4. Go online and send service books

    Wouldn't this work, since I send the service books AFTER I unlock it?
    Am I getting them out of order?

    Yeah you could try it that way, that might work. I thought you were going to try sending books
    before unlocking

    Yes!! That would work. I did it. I got a 8300 for my TMO service and I still updated the OS w/o service. That's the exact order I did it to. But I got a 8320 so I don't have to worry about it. But make sure you do it in that exact order and everything will be great!
