So ...I'm upgrading my OS on my 8310 and I'm kind of stuck. Can somebody explain what these are and if I should choose to install them?

BlackBerry MDS Runtime
BlackBerry S/MIME Support Package
DOD Root Certificates
Phone -> TTY Support

Thanks a lot.[/quote]

I had the same questions. The MDS and S/MIME are only relevant to BES or Corporate/Enterprise BB software, not the common BIS. The DOD cert really are apparently for Department of Defense, and it doesn't do much either way, but it flags things in a way that could save us time IF we were seaching a military sponsored site. The TTY is related to hard of hearing stuff, something about a different way to energize the voice coil. If your aren't using a hearing aide, you wouldn't have a reason to apply.

Like the man said, if you leave them off, no harm done.
