    If you purchased the phone and need it for another carrier, contact O2 and explain it to them, they may be able to unlock it for you. Also do a google search, there are many places that offer unlocking of phones.

    Upgrade the BB to the latest os version and it should support up to 4 Gb cards

    There are many around, it depends on the file types you are trying to convert. I use Slysoft to convert dvd to avi, the 4.3 DM out now will convert most files to mpeg4 for BB viewing.

    Upgrading the os as mentioned should help that.

    After unlocking and loading the latest os, you should be able to use BB maps with GPS, I am not familiar with O2 options so I don't know if it is locked out like Verizon does. Others here may have that answer.

    The 8100 does not have built in GPS. It uses a bluetooth puck for GPS signal but it will work with BB Maps, Google Maps, and a couple of other mapping software out there.

    as suggested i uploaded the latest version of the os and now the videos hav stopped hanging and i can work on the controls as well...
    BUt the video size has reduced ..though i converted to a 352:288 video scale size using super C software... but size while playing on BB becomes small....

    any solutions for this prob... is there any other converter which can help ...
    is it possible to play media full screen????
