    upgrading 7130G BB to 4.2

    Advertisement



    Hi All,

    Am having BB 7130G from O2 which is unlocked and used in India at present. Few question I need to know before upgrading the OS from 4.1 to 4.2.

    1. What's the benefits of OS 4.2 over OS 4.1 on 7130G?
    2. I have got O2 phone which is unlocked to be used in India. Do I need to download OS 4.2 from O2 website or any OS 4.2 will do? say Airtel in India.
    3. If I upgrade, will it lock my phone again or it will remain unlocked
    a: if i upgrade from O2 only
    b: or if i upgrade from Airtel, India

    4. At present, O2 website does not offer 4.2 for 7130G. Does it mean I can't upgrade from Airtel?

    5. And last, is it worth the pain?

    Thanks,

    I cannot attest to the new OS as I do not use a 71xx, but I do know that if you unlock the phone, it remains unlocked with OS up/downgrades.

    Good luck with the upgrade!

    There is not really a good reason why you can't upgrade your BB with another providers OS, you just have to make sure the OS has some kind of provissions for the network you will use the OS on so you don't have any service book or browser issues. You should be fine though.
