    OS version???

    Advertisement



    I just got my Pearl a couple weeks back what is the newest OS? I went into the options and its version v4.2.0.64. Is that the newest version. If not when I download a new version does the whole phone need to be re-setup? Is there a way to back up setting and info and etc? thanks

    Hey mamatried welcome to the stacks.

    The newest version is the .71 off the Cingular version. The OS isn't carrier specific. So you can use any version with the pearl. If you do use that OS you will need to delete the vendor.xml file though. There are plenty of threads telling you how.

    There's is a backup option in your desktop manager for your pearl. Also there a restore option too. Really easy to upgrade. It will backup and restore everything. Just a few things you will have to do yourself. Like TCP settings and few minor other things. Hope that helps.

    Sorry for all the dumb questions I'm new to BB's. What are the differences between Cingulars new version compared to whats on my phone from tmobile? Thanks for all the help.

    There is nothing different in the operating systems, however if you have tmobile and use a Cingular os you will have to delete the vendor.xml file like reddog said. And there are also some threads that explain this in detail. Hope that helps.
