    Device without an operating system

    Advertisement



    Hi,
    I'm new to Blackberrys and handheld devices in general. I saw a Blackberry being sold on Ebay for parts. The seller said it didn't have an operating system. How can it not have an operating system? I thought the OS was hardwired into the device. Can an OS be downloaded into the device? Where would I get it and how much would it cost?

    Where do I get it? The software I see on this site appears to be specific apps (ringtones, business apps, etc). The sofware on the Blackberry site seems to be from specific service providers. I don't want to download something that will lock my phone to a specific provider.
