    Re: New OS ?

    Well, the latest os is 4.2.1.101 from Austria, I believe. I'm running it right now. I upgraded to it the day it came out, but I think something didn't go quite right with the upgrade. I had a few problems with it. I never had any problems with os 4.2.1.96 from AT&T though. I am going to keep trying this one for another week or so. If it doesn't get better for me, I'll be going back to 1.96.

    Here are the links:
    Austria 4.2.1.101 - http://members.a1.net/updateservice/bb/

    AT&T 4.2.1.96 - https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...E4F82F9F00E7D4

    By the way, which base are you at in HI?

    Re: New OS ?

    i'm still on 4.2.0.64 since i've had no problems with it at all. i've read about all the different kinds of bugs in newer versions, and that's kept me from upgrading. i don't have any dropped calls at the moment and do not wish to have any in the future, so 0.64 it is...

    Re: New OS ?

    I'm still using 4.2.0.64 partly because T-Mobile doesn't offer an upgrade as of yet and i'm not sure what would happen if I load another OS that TM doesn't support. I do look forward to an upgrade that would allow music to be heard over bluetooth headphones and 4gb microsd card support.

    TheTank, nothing will happen with your phone if you do the OS install correctly (it's not hard really), however TMO might not support your phone should you have any issues if they find out you're not using their OS.

    it's really just a personal decision. do you want it or not? the only bad ting with 0.64 is it's old and you don't get all the new toys to play with.

    4.2.1.101 from Mobile Telekom (I think that's spelled correctly).

    4.2.1.101 is the latest and the one I use it's from A1 in Australia, I'd suggest that one or
    4.2.1.96 by AT&T/Cingular, they seem to be the most stable with the majority of the new toys, unfortunatly only 4.2.1.101 is the only os to support the 4gb sdhc cards

    With no data plan you won't have internet access or BBM or MMS. But you can
    still upgrade your OS as long as you have a PC.
