    Os?

    Advertisement



    Ok silly questions but one wont learn unless he/she asks, right?

    1- Can I install the OS from another provider? I am with Rogers and I'm wondering if downloading a Cingular or Tmo OS will cause any issues.

    2- What steps do I need to take before installing an OS upgrade? ..which leads me to my third question..

    3- Will an OS upgrade mess up my settings, i.e. would I have to re-unlock my vendor themes? would I have to reload my 3rd party applications? and so on.

    appreciate the help.

    Re: Os?

    1. Yes you can install any carriers os. Only thing is that your provider might tell ya that they can't help you.

    2. Backup.

    3. Unlock yes, reload yes,

    you will most likely also have to resend service books and re-register by "hosting routing tables" too...at least with every upgrade i have done, i have had to...

    Re: Os?

    ok, keeping with my OS rockie theme,

    1- Would my wireless provider attomatically send me an OS update notice and just download it then? meaning should I wait for Rogers .71 OS release?

    2- Why a backup? I mean I know the advantages of a backup but if I'm willing to download a brand new OS I have commited to wipe it clean, no?

    1) Rogers will not issue an update v.71, cingular did already

    2) the backup will restore any settings or data (contacts, emails, etc.)
