    question for Cingular users

    Advertisement



    What is the difference between the OS for the Red Pearl vs the "Maine Slate" Pearl? I'm restoring a Pearl for someone, and I'm curious as to what the differences are, other than the names. Is one more current than the other? Which is better, if there are differences?

    *********And to any TMO users who've upgraded to the Cingular OS-re:auto backlight- does it actually give you back the option for the backlight? I loaded the Cingular OS on my TMO Pearl, but nowhere in options or screen/keyboard does it give me a way to turn the auto dim feature off and/or on.
    TIA

    Hmm. I think it's ver71 I used. Where is 66? And-do you still have your password keeper? It's also disappeared off my Pearl after that upgrade. Yes, I've rebooted and run it back thru the app loader. Still no password keeper.
    Thanx

    The Cingular OS will not give you the backlight option back. Only 1.66 will give that back.

    I'm using .73 on my TMO pearl. Works great for me.

    The Cingular OS is designed to have certain service books already in it... Kinds lame, but if you update to the latest one it actually works ok even though its missing some things.
