    No you are not limited to the TMO version of the Blackberry software. The only problem that might occur would be a slight chance of loss of TMO warranty support if you had a problem. But I don't recommend upgrading just because there's on available. Unless you know that a given upgrade cures a problem that affects your use of the BB I would leave it alone.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: How to: OS 4.x Upgrade for your Blackberry

    I have a BB Pearl 8100 with OS 4.2.0.71 from Cingular and I am trying to load the latest T-mobile OS onto it before I go ahead and spend money unlocking it. I have installed it. deleted the vendor file, connected it, and I get no messages about changes of OS at all. What am I doingwrong?

    Basically it is a Cingular 8100, and I want to use it on T-mobile, now I know I have to pay to unlock it, but can I switch over to T-mobile OS on it? that is what I am trying t odo.

    shouldn't the thing have a T-mobile logo once I load a t-mobile specific OS? or do I need to unlock the phone first?

    Re: How to: OS 4.x Upgrade for your Blackberry

    If you are talking about the initial screen that shows AT&T as the BB is powering up, you will never get rid of that. It is not associated with the OS, but is hard coded in an area of memory that is not accessible by the user.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: How to: OS 4.x Upgrade for your Blackberry

    Help! I was near the end of upgrading my 7100g to 4.1 OS, when I received an error about a password and not being able to connect. I clicked the "retry" button several times, but had no luck. As a result, I had to cancel the upgrade. Now when I turn on my bb, all I get is a white screen that says "connecting to desktop"... I tried to restore the info on my bb, but DM isn't recognizing my bb anymore.... can anyone help?

    Re: How to: OS 4.x Upgrade for your Blackberry

    I have a bb pearl from TMO but it's unlocked; will upgrading the OS mess up the phone? the reason why I am trying to flash the phone is I have that silly missed call icon and I tried everything to get rid of it but it wont go away....also the slow mem card loading issue, that just bites, so my next step would be to wipe the phone and I figured what the heck change the software while I am at it see if I can kill 2 birds with 1 stone!! But I will try this on my day off because this process is an all day thing....my next question how about the 3rd party app is there any know issues after reflashing?? Any suggestions are welcomed....have not messed around with my bb in awhile...thanks

    Re: How to: OS 4.x Upgrade for your Blackberry

    Hi,

    I have an 8100 from T-Mobile and its 4.2.0.64 version. However I see that there is 4.2.1.93 available. Can I delete the vendor.xml and upgrade it to that? Would my phone work with TMobile still? Has anyone you know done that? Please let me know as I'm downloading the new version as well speak.

    Thanks & Regards,
    -Ummati
