    Phone OS update carrier switching q?

    Advertisement



    So I was given an 8100 that was locked to t-mo as a present, I unlocked it, and am now using it with my at&t plan, but my question is, If i want to update the OS, should I use the at&t one now, or would that mess up the phone since the update site for at&t specifies that the update is for an 8100c, but mine is just an 8100, but if i upgrade the t-mo stuff, I wouldnt need all the software that would come with it

    Yes. I have a TMO 8100, same as you. I have had AT&T, Rogers, TMO installed & working ...to a certain degree. The problem lies in the fact that updates past 4.2.0.64 are a bit problematic because they are, apparently, designed for devices with later mfr dates than mine (mine is 1.5 yrs old). Rogers worked the best (4.2.0.94), but any 4.2.1.xx was highly problematic. Things worked/didnt work on a whim. I finally reverted to .64, since there really is very_little_reason to update. There just isn't much that's really new.

    If you have better luck, I hope you will remember to contact me with your exact update method. All six updates on my device have been more problem than they were worth.
