    help with updates

    Advertisement



    I just got my Pearl a couple days ago and was wondering if I need to update any software. I went to the Blackberry software download site for AT&T (cant post the link), but I don't know what, if anything, I need to download. Right now I have Desktop Manager version 4.2.0.14. Do I need to download any of the service packs or something? Also, I have version 4.2.0.73 (Platform 2.2.0.41) on my phone. Sorry for these NOOB questions, I just don't want to mess this thing up. Any help that you guys can give me will be much appreciated. Thanks.

    You need to get desktop manager ver.2 sp2.
    you can get that off the main blackberry website.
    sp2 has roxio media manager so it might take a while to download.
    you can get OS .96 from att. or you can get .101.

    808psi, you can get Desktop Manager 4.2 SP2 with or without the media manager from the same AT&T download site that you get your OS from. You should get the 4.2 SP2 DM and the AT&T upgraded OS.

    The AT&T Pearls were shipped with a faulty Desktop Manager, which if you installed to the PC from your CD, will corrupt your phone's OS and make it start doing funky things.

    Run these upgrades, and your phone will do just fine. Come back here if you have any troubles
