Sent ya a PM about it.
You are awesome AZ..... thanks for the find I was just in the alltell store tonight and asked if maybe there was an update...he said huh an update....lol
grrrr lol just read the edit
It was only up for a couple hours after I posted this. I have it on my son's 8130. The upgrade went smoothly. Got him his docs to go and the upgrade, now I just have to remember to remove the docs to go modules from the OS so it doesnt try to downgrade it every time I use the DM application loader.
So far the only bug or glitch noticed is that it does have the annoying speakerphone bug. When answering a phone call the sound comes out the speakerphone for a second before switching to the normal headset speaker. Not a real big deal, just annoying.
I will post back with more as I play.
Did the SMS change to "SMS and MMS" on his icon? Just wondering if the service books are already pushing.
He got those a week or so ago. There were a few posts about it showing up. It wasn't working properly for him but the options were there. Now my MMS isn't working. They come as "could not retrieve message content" and when I go to menu/retrieve now they don't come. Same with his 8130....grrrr
Yeah, about 2 weeks ago RIM jumped the gun and sent out the service books to all Blackberry Pearl's on Alltel so they all got the indicator if they did a SB update during the window.
That update was pulled as it was meant for only the 4.5 updated BB's on release. But it still worked for people who already had the update.
I'd expect a few bugs until Monday to be honest cause I'm not sure if everything is fully activated yet. Try just simply powering off, pull the battery, and power back on and repush your service books and see if it works.
I have battery pulled and resent service books, re-registered with the network.......called alltel and they said it was not officially working yet. But several users reported that it is working for them for their 8130s.
My Picture MMS was working fine after my upgrade to 126.96.36.199 for several weeks but just recently started with the unable to retrieve content. I have not called Alltel on my 8330 MMS issues because i know they will just blame the fact that I'm not using their official OS....yet it was working fine for a while.
Thanks for your input so far. Hopefully the next few days will have us all on 4.5 with working MMS!

Remove Documents to Go or at least go back to the version that is preloaded. Upgrading to the version that includes excel will kill picture messaging.

I had to completely delete docs to go t get the mms working. Downgrading didn't work. I will try to add it back and see what happens.
It makes no sense. What does one have to do with the other????? It sucks that I must choose!!!

Hmmmm. All good info, Azstar. Thanks for being a guinea pig on this one. Sounds like this one wasn't QUITE ready for "official" prime time and that't why it got pulled so fast. I hope they get the bugs out of it and re-release it soon for the 8130 AND 8330! Good luck.

OK, so I deleted Docs to go completely in order to get MMS working again. I did go back and re-install the original Docs to Go version on both my 8130 and my 8330 and MMS is still working on both devices.
But this seems to be an Alltel 4.5 issue in general since I installed the official Alltel version on my son's 8130 and a 188.8.131.52 beta on my 8330 and both have the same issue.
Thank you cclay25 for giving me the head's up on that, I never would have guessed that the upgrade with excel could cause this type of issue.
I'm going to start another thread with this issue in the title so others will know ahead of time.
Alltel or RIM may have pulled the download from they`re site but you can get it threw the web upgrade under device software upgrade tab on the blackberry website . As for mms everything works great coming and going but do not register or download the maintenance update for docstogo .
