    1) Do you have a BlackBerry BIS (BlackBerry Internet Service) data plan added to the account for the phone? You will need that to load pictures and ringtones. You will need to email the pictures to the BB and download ringtones from the web on the phone. You CAN install ringtones, themes and wallpapers without the data plan (Search for Install Wallpapers and Ringtones Without A Data Plan), but it's MUCH easier with the data.

    2) As far as upgrades for the 7250, I found this one. Go to https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...24164a761e7aTR and choose the 7250. Install it on your PC. Then find and delete the vendor.xml file .Start>Search. Select All Files and Folders. Type in vendor.xml. Select Delete. Connect the BB to the PC and let it install. Takes about 30 minutes. Do not disconnect the BB from the PC while this is going on.

    3) To find out exactly which OS is on the phone go to Options>About. There will be a screen that comes up with all kinds of system information just like a PC. You are looking for the following: "BlackBerry 7250 Wireless Handheld 4.0.x.xxx" (that's the exact OS) and Platform X.X.X.XX (replace X's with whatever numbers appear)."

    And keep in mind also that the 7250 won't accept any mp3, only mono tones

    UNLESS it is for a BETA OS, it's at your own risk and I won't support it

    Re: brand new user have no idea what to do

    Hey thank you very much. I did get the data plan for her and already set her email up thru the email set up. it is a v4.0.0.241 and platform 2.0.0.34. The link for that update is a dead link and did not work.
    For the pictures, how do I get a a picture to be the wallpaper or the theme? I've tried some of the links I was able to find on other threads here but I haven't been able to do anything with them. Could it be because I'm running off of an old OS? Thanks for all the help
