    T-mobile OS

    Advertisement



    Without reading 5,000 posts, I would like to know if it is advisable to change OS's

    Facts: I have a Pearl with the T-mobile OS 4.2.0.64. I now am a Cingular (AT&T) subscriber. I like the way everything works. i.e. "it ain't broke".

    Desired: The one enhancement I'd really like is the turn-off screen dimming. Speed, improvement in Suretype would be nice but I'm fine with it as is.

    Question: Is it worth updating the OS to get this one feature? Or am I asking for trouble or complications or sacrifices or risks that something else won't work right.

    Thanks

    I don't have a T-Mo branded 8100, but I am on AT&T and I would have to say that upgrading to either 4.2.1.96(AT&T) or 4.2.1.101(Mobikom Austria) would be a good move. They are both way faster than 0.64, and much more stable IMO.

    Re: T-mobile OS

    The only thing you need to be aware of is this- if you call the carrier for any problems you may experience, they will know what OS you are using, and if it isn't their's' they will tell you they cannot support you. I ran into this issue recently with TMO. So I simply switched OS, and called back. Presto! They will only know however, if they ask for your IMEI #. So if they don't ask for it, don't sweat it. And just having another OS did not void my warranty, as the urban legend goes. I just had to remove it, before calling the CSR back. via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Re: T-mobile OS

    I had tmo with an ATT OS and called for help. No problem, they helped anyway. The answer to my problem ended up being to downgrade back to the .064 OS because it is the only one that did't drop calls.
    Seems like most folks do better with the newer OS, a few, like me, don't. Although I will try it again.
    Your odds are good and you can always go back, the only cost: a little time and frustration.
