    Can 7130c be upgraded to OS 4.2 using 7130g update?

    Advertisement



    Hi all. First post here on PS so bear with me.

    I have a 7130c from Cingular with no data plan. I use it for the phone and PDA functions. I want to upgrade the OS to 4.2 so the phone can synch with v4.2 desktop manager correctly allowing me to load my own pictures onto the phone. With no data plan, this seems like the easiest and cheapest way to do it. Trying to use the media manager without OS 4.2 gives the following error message:

    "The connected blackberry device does not support transferring media files. Verify that the device has Blackberry Device Software version 4.2 or later installed."

    I am currently using:
    v4.10.321 (platform 2.10.26)

    Following the links in the blackberry site, cinuglar doesn't yet have an update to 4.2 for the 7130c, but it does have one for the 7130g (I'm guessing the 7130g came over with ATT when they merged.) Is it possible to use this update on the 7130c?

    If not, is there another way to get my own pictures onto the phone without a data plan?

    Thanks in advance.

    Software For BlackBerry 7130g(TM) BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.1.154 (Multilanguage)

    Package Version: 4.2.1.154
    Consisting of:
    • Applications: 4.2.1.96
    • Software Platform: 2.3.0.78
    • File name: 7130gM_PBr4.2.1_rel154_PL2.3.0.78_A4.2.1.96_AT&T.e xe
    • File size: 61.86MB
    Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.

    I don't see why you can't use this. It's made for a 7130 so you should be alright.

    Lucky. I'm having a similar problem with my BB too. Except Media Manager doesn't even recognize my BB at all! Who can I PM for that problem?

    Anyways, I gotta try this update. This sounds like it could fix all my problems

    so can this update be used on other 71xx BB's? Like the 7105t.

    Looks like this update is for 7130's only. I don't think the 7105t has the memory for it, but I'm not sure about the 7105. I know the 7100g is a 32meg device so probably no 4.2 for it. But the 7100i is listed as a 64meg device where theroretically 4.2 could work if developed for it.

    How much memory your phone has seems to be the deciding factor perhaps? And a provider actually realeasing it.
