    Hi Silverdog

    Yes, Jeff is correct, you can use any carriers OS on your 8100. If it is NOT from your provider (such as TMO 4.2.1.107) you would need to delete the vendor.alx file AFTER you install the software on your desktop and you will be good to go!

    Post back if you have any questions!

    just be patient....some upgrades can take some time (up to an hour)....DO NOT panic and unplug your phone during the process or you will be spending quite a bit of quality time with Jeff and I this evening ...

    Otherwise you should have no issues!

    I had some problems when I did mine Friday night, but I think they were caused by Newscopier. After all the problems, I finally left it out and it works fine now. I have Suncom also and this was the first time I've had problems upgrading. As long as nothing you have on it clashes with the new OS, you shouldn't have to worry.
