    Advertisement



    What is the latest Blackberry OS that I can install on my Telus Mobility Pearl 8130, and where can I get it?

    Is 4.5 the latest version I can install on my 8130? How about 4.6?

    Are there any issues with it ATM? problems, compatibility issues, etc?

    Also, any instructions would be nice.

    doesn't exist, but I know you can install 4.5 on the 8130... I've done it once before, but had to revert back because of a problem I was having (whihc I later found out it was a problem with one of the applications I had installed, not the OS software).

    I know you can get the 4.5 software directly from blackberry's general downloads section, but can I install the 4.6 software or is that specifically for other (newer) BB devices

    You can find links to the latest OS for your device here.

    Alltel had released one this morning, but has since pulled it from their web site for some reason.

    4.6 is currently only for newer devices.

    I went there, clicked the link on the first post, but the site didn't have the 4.5 software, only 4.0, 4.1 and 4.6

    EDIT.. nevermind... got it

    any instructions on how to properly update? Will the update erase all my currently installed apps

    can I use the 4.6 desktop software with the 4.5 OS, or should I stick with the 4.5 DM ?

    why wait for them to release it when you can install it yourself from another carrier's download page... read the posts above. I just finished installing it on my telus 8130. Works like a charm... i looovvvveee html email

    btw... the 8130 trade-in + $100 for the storm... is that a standing offer to all telus customers who own a Pearl 8130?? Or was that just an offer made to you specifically? That's not a bad offer since the storm is prolly going to be sold for $600 or more.

    @catside (or anyone else who'd like to answer this question): After installing Desktop Manager 4.5, I can't seem to back up third party apps by going to Device Switch Wizard. When I click the Start button, it seems to start backing up, then hang in the middle of the process. Any ideas? I tried it on 2 separate computers.

    Note: This happened before and after upgrading to OS 4.5. I had upgraded the Desktop Manager first, then went to back everything up from my 8130 with OS 4.3 still. It would always hang on the third party backup. After uninstall Desktop Manager 4.5 and re-installing DM 4.3, I was able to backup no problem. Like I said this happened on 2 separate computers, so I don't think it's specific to the computer, but rather a bug in the DM 4.5 software. Same thing happened after I upgraded the OS to 4.5. Any ideas?

    well he said it to me cuz i was on the phone with the dude for like 2/3 hours cuz had a few things i wanted to get worked out and find out...cuz they called me and said do i want a free phone and thats how i got the blackberry cuz sister has been with them for over 5 years so she has credit to get a new phone of her pick anyone she wants so anyways back on topic..

    ya im not sure give em a call with a made up prob and ask them cuz he said something about credit with takin the phone in and doin this stuff but ya..

    i would not install it from another carrier its not a bad wait so i just got the phone not even 5 months ago so lol no big to me so far but i would like it for the html email and the themes that are only for the 4.5 just wish telus would change the sms limit to pages or like 3000 words or something or enable the mms
