    Unlocked Pearl OS Updates Question

    Advertisement



    All,

    Please excuse my newbieness. If I download and install the new 02 updates, will it relock my phone?

    Will I loose anything stored into my phone?

    Will I need to redo my BIS through Cingular (will email still work)?

    Will I need to do anythine else after I install?

    It's my first unlocked phone and im a bit scared!

    First thing. DO A BACK UP with the desktop manager. Any applications will have to be reloaded plus you will have to reload ringtones, unless they're stored on your media card. You will probably have to redo most or all of your settings such as your profile preferences. But most imporantly, this WILL not relock your BB. Once TMO unlocks it, it releases your PIN #. So regardless what OS you have, or load, it wouldn't matter.

    Releases your PIN... as in PIN to PIN doesn't work anymore? Or the fact that your PIN is a known TMO PIN. Then becomes an open PIN?

    No, it mean that they have released the PIN from being associated with a TMO account on the RIM Database, so that it can now be associated with an account on another carrier. But that's not really unlocking a BB. Once the Unlock Code is successfully entered into the Device, it will be unlocked forever.
