    on your Pearl you can also hold down the ALT key then type the word "RACE" while holding ALT the whole time. Your OS version will be listed as "App Version", along with your PIN, signal strength, free memory, and how long your BB has been running since you last pulled the battery

    That was a nice one, but is it possible to upgrade the firmware on the pearl?

    you sure can. check out the thread about Rogers 4.2.1.94 OS (it's really long but read it all, it's going to be very helpful for ya)

    thanks red. Just wondering, is there a downside to upgrading your firmware? (I really like my pearl, don't want to mess it up!)

    no downside at all, actually the Rogers OS above is much improved. give it a try.
