    OS update question

    Advertisement



    I have Cellular One and they are running .71 on the Pearl. I am having quite a few dropped calls with it. There is not an upgraded OS through blackberry.com for them. I have read up on it that the dropped calls is due to the OS. Which version would be the best for me to download?

    Re: OS update question

    You can run any of the Pearl 4.2.x Operating Systems on your phone, regardless of your carrier. If you choose an OS thru a carrier that isn't Cellular One, there are a couple of extra steps you will have to complete in order to make it work. It will not affect the functionality of your phone. There are a couple of threads on here that will show you the available OS versions, and walk you through the installation process.

    when you back up a bb, it doesn't back up the OS at all, so no worries

    I had to reload any 3rd party apps and themes after I updated the OS. Pretty new to this, amounted to a couple themes, Google Maps, and MyAlarms. Was this normal or should I have done a custom backup?
