    You can use any carriers operating system on your device.

    Check this thread to find out how do do it if you are not sure.

    You can also look here for the latest OS by device.

    No. Look for 8100. That's the OS you have to use.

    There should be 8 different versions for download in the second thread I posted. Here is another place to look as well. It has to be for the 8100 or it will not work. Operating systems are device specific.

    It happens sometimes. Try doing a battery pull and rebooting and also check the memory.

    Use the one for 8100. If u need to delete the vendor files. Instructions should be there with the download links for it. Enjoy, any problems feel free to message me!

    anything over 20 is ok, but you may want to free up some memory on your device..
    When i say i have Bold family phones, I meant it, from the older to the younger, even the unborn ;)
