    well you don't necessarily have to use YOUR provider...T-mobile has the newest OS out for all 8100s and seems to be the fastest, most stable and reliable OS out...just make sure you delete the vendor file where the OS installs on your computer otherwise you won't be able to upgrade via DM...hope this helps...post back with results or more ?s

    you may also want to look into getting the newest DM...also from T-mobile btw

    k...go into My Computer and into your C: drive...from there navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files...in there are all the versions of the OS that you have installed on your computer...if there is more than 1 (hopefully being OS version 4.2.1.107 from t-mobile) you need to remove them completely via add/remove programs...post back once you're this far

    Does it show connected on the DM? if not go to options, connection settings and hit detect. once it shows connected back up your info via back up and restore (just in case) then go into application loader. hit next and at the device app selection screen make sure the first 2 options say 4.2 system software and 4.2 core apps. hit next, hit advanced. select to erase all curruntly installed apps, next and select to auto back up and restore. then hit finish. It will take 20mins to an hour to run through the process. Post back with any questions. Welcome to the Stacks.
