    Smile US Cellular 7250 v4.0xxxx

    Advertisement



    I'm new to the BB world and have a 7250 from US Cellular that has v4.0xxx. I would like to load some themes but have found (thanks to all the pinstack member postings) that you need v4.1 to use themes. My question is: Will upgrading to v4.1, even though it is not available through US Cellular, cause any problems with the BB in the area of service from US Cellular or communicating with BES?

    Thanks in advance for any responses.

    It should not cause you to have problems with your provider or BES. It is updated software that allows you to use themes among other updated features.

    As a USCC Blackbery support person, I can tell you that we won't provide support for a 7250 with 4.1 software on it. We don't have the documentation to make sure what's changed and not changed for the 7250, and therefore it's an unapproved modification.

    None of that says you can't. It simply means we won't help you do it, nor even keep it.

    Question Re: US Cellular 7250 v4.0xxxx

    Thanks for the quick replies. This forum is great for us newbies!
    Osiris,
    Is there a projected date when US Cellular will approve v4.1 for the 7250?
    This is a company BB and an upgrade wouldn't be an issue unless something went wrong and it cost us some support dollars.

    Thanks again all for the replies!

    I am also a US Cellular customer who installed the 4.1 upgrade. I installed it about a month ago and it works great! Before the 4.1 upgrade on my 7250 I was unable to get tethering to work with my laptop, after the upgrade it works fine.

    Sorry for the delay. With the new markets in Kansas/Nebraska, one of our call centers has been dedicated to that, and we're taking on some overflow for it. So I got busy for a bit.

    It would appear, though, that 4.1 isn't far away. Some customers calling in with newer Blackberry 7250's are reporting 4.1 features on their phones (most notably the "Advanced Options" setting which hides things like Service Books one level deeper in the menu). Does that mean the software itself will soon become available, to upgrade earlier 7250's? I'm waiting to hear back about that.

    Thank you for the update Osiris. I'll keep checking the US Cellular website for updates.
