    Alltel 4.5.0.127 Available via web updater and DM 4.7

    Advertisement



    I received an email today at work and when I got home I followed up and here are the results. This is not Official as of yet via the Blackberry website. However it is official thru web updater and DM 4.7. I have confirmed it is available for both the 8330 and the 8130 using this method.

    Using the web updater at blackberry.com found here I was given two choices to upgrade. The first was 4.5.0.89 which until now was the official Alltel upgrade or 4.5.0.127 which was listed as preferred. The info on 4.5.0.127 is as follows:

    BlackBerry 8330 smartphone (CDMA)
    v4.5.0.127 (platform 3.4.0.20)

    I tried this on two devices one which I wiped and used the web updater and the other without the wipe using DM 4.7 both updated to 4.5.0.127 with no issue. I would recommend using the web updater because of known issues with with 4.7 but it did work on both.

    I will be testing over the next couple of days to see if it corrects the MMS issue with 4.5 and Docs to Go and other issues I found with 4.5.0.89.

    After going through the process last night I have had no issues and believe this to be the next Official update for Alltel. It works on both the 8330 and the 8130 and my guess would be that it will be on the actual software update site within a few days.

    Does it resolve the speakerphone issue, by any chance, where everytime you answer a phone call it comes through the speaker for a second or two before switching to the earpiece?

    I have only had a couple of calls since doing the update and I didn't notice it. I will pay closer attention on next call and report back. I want to say yes it fixed it but not sure just yet. It did however give me about 5mb more space. which is always good.

    I loaded the Docs to go standard along with sheets to go and have been able to send and receive MMS. It appears to have been fixed. I am not noticing the speaker phone issue either. I will test more after I am done with my meeting at work.~via smartphone~
