    Advertisement



    I haven’t installed any OS updates because I never wanted to, but my phone is starting to get a little slow on me and I want to get it updated. My question is which one would you recommend please tell me because I was looking around and I found a couple ones, and if could some one tell me how or what do I need to do to update it please because I don’t want to screw up my BB. Thank you.

    Your profile says you're with Cingular, so you should have the lastest OS. If it's getting slow on you, you may want to give it a 30 sec battery pull and check how much device memory you have available. I wouldn't upgrade to 1.66 since there's quite a few bugs everyone is experiencing. I would stick with what you got. if it is indeed .71 or .73 OS
    Just my two cents. hope it helps.

    Re: help with OS updates which one is recommended.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Where are those OS's .71 or .73? I just spent several hours last night upgrading to .66.

    Update: I found it. I will be busy for awhile today but I may try it later to see what happens.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Red, that isn't a downgrade if you want to go to .73 unless you have something the rest of us don't know about LOL

    Re: help with OS updates which one is recommended.

    .71 or .73 is the Operating System version that runs on the BlackBerry. The .71 OS is for the Cingular black Pearl and .73 is for the Cingular red Pearl. You don't have to be on Cingular to use them though. I am on T-Mobile and have used other carriers' OS's.

    The link to install OS .73 is here https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...E4F82F9F00E7D4

    Just choose your device. Then follow all prompts for information and verification. Then install the software to your device. Delete the "vendor.xml" file by searching your PC and deleting it. Then install the OS via Desktop Manager by connecting your BB to the PC.

    Re: help with OS updates which one is recommended.

    I went to install the 4.2.0.73 OS (Platform 2.2.0.41), the Cingular Red Pearl OS, and got an error message on Desktop Manager saying "Leave the system applications on the device unchanged (Recommended). Select this option only if you want to continue loading non-system applications that are already on the device unchanged."

    I have OS 4.2.1.66 (Platform 2.3.0.57). I unlocked new vendor themes before I tried to install so I would have all new themes.

    Yup I'm back down to .73. 1.66 wasn't cutting it for me. All the issues with jivetalk and MMS. The pros were not enough to keep me there. I think when the 8300 comes out we'll get a new OS. I can wait till then.
