    Re: Latest OS for 7130?

    I would also like to know the latest OS version for 7130. I have the e. I see on VZW website, that there was an update on 5/31/07 to 4.1. But I don't know if its 4.1.1 or 1.2 or whatever. To be honest I can't figure out which OS I have now. If someone would let me know either or both it would be helpful. thanks

    I am running v4.1.0.268(platform 2.2.0.98) So I don't know if 4.1 will be an upgrade. Anybody know for sure? I am not having and problems with current OS but always want the newest if possible. Please let me know. Everyone on this site is great and I appreciate all the help and opinions.

    thanks again

    I just upgraded to the new VZW OS for 7130e. Its 4.1.0.344. I have no idea what benefit it serves. If anyone knows, please feel free.

    I emailed VZW to ask them about the 5/31/07 update. They essentially said no new benefit. The latest 7130e software is Sprint's version, which they unveiled in February, I believe-- just install to your desktop and delete the vendor.xml file before connecting your 7130e to the computer. Then you'll be "on the cutting edge." Of course, that's what irks me about VZW-- here we're chatting about OS 4.2 and having it already come to the 7130g, and Verizon puts out a 4.1 version that is older than Sprint and Bell Canada, and it took Verizon over a year to update it. Really feeling the love there.

    Though, in their email back to me, they said the following (among other things irrelevant to this topic):
    When 4.2 device software becomes available, you will be able to download it from the smithmicro website.

    So it may not be an "if" VZW's 7130e will get the 4.2 OS, but "when".

    I am nervouse about puting someone elses OS on my VZW. Is there really a significant benefit? Thanks for the earlier info. I was pushing BB buttons and not seeing any differences from my new download.

    There's no problem about using another carrier's OS on your BB, that will not screw up anything

    BUT, there's always a but, you have to know that you do this at your own risk and your carrier could refuse to help you if you have any problem and could also void the warranty. OS upgrade are for advanced BB user and should be done only if really needed.

    I'm not trying to scare you or anything just letting you know, if you still feel comfortable with doing this write me back and I'll gave you the exact procedure

    The new OS seems to have a few minor changes that I have seen. It updates the screen you see while synching and it changed the font or spacing or something in the phone application. The font stayed the same everywhere except when sending or recieving a call. Weird.
