    Very basic question (Carrier specific versions of OS)

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    What's the difference between the 'carrier specific' versions of the OS

    For example, I have an unlocked T-mobile 7290 and I'm moving to Australia and will get a plan from Optus. Will I need to install the Optus version of the OS or will everything work fine with my T-mobile version?

    Also is the carrier version in the filename.

    So if the OS was 4.1.0.210 would the 210 correspond to the carrier.

    I'm sorry if this information is already in the forums, but I couldn't dig it out after a good search.

    Thanks for your help,

    Paul

    To answer your questions simply... OS's (Handheld Software's) Are NOT carrier specific they are Device Specific. You can use any carrier's 7290 OS on any 7290 although your carrier could refuse you customer service if you tell them.

    Also as an addendum to above the .210 at the end is not carrier specific #.

    Does this apply to the Blackberry Pearl 8100 as well? My Blackberry Pearl is currently with Rogers Canada and I want to install the Vodafone UK OS onto it. Would it affect my phone in any way?

    sharkattack, you can download ANY officially released upgrade, regardless of carrier.

    Who has the most advanced OS for the pearl and what does it make better for the pearl. I never really understood what the OS upgrades do.
