    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Go to your carrier website and download the pearl handheld/device software. Install it on your PC. Hook up bb to usb and run desktop manager/application loader.

    The first Pearl software package was 4.2.0.xx. I didn't think any of the Pearl OS had the ZEN theme with the list Application. I thought that went away with the transfer from 4.1 to 4.2

    Re: trouble?

    I think you want 4.2.0.64

    That was the TMO OS from about 12 to 18 months ago (actually up until the released the very buggy .103 for about 48 hours)

    I see it in Reds thread for older systems. If you have any more problems post back!
