I have a few questions.
So far I wiped it, then reinstalled new OS.
It seems to be an 8100c, as thats the only one AT&T had when looking for OS upgrade. So that was teh software I downlaoded and installed.
its version number is 188.8.131.52
I tried the "latest" one in the post stuck in this forum, the rogers one, but when i installe dit and then run teh app loader, it said no upgrade avaialble. Then I tried the AT&T one.
So firstly is there a more recent version of he OS I can use on this Handset.
Is there a way I can check what model this BB is to be sure, it says in the about menu an 8100.. no mention of it being an 8100c in that section etc, but as I said the os software I downloaded and installed was teh AT&T 8100c.
Also can I connect this handset to my home wireless network? And get internet access via ny ADSL router?
Any help appreciated.
You can use the version 4.5 listed as a sticky at the top of the 8100 forum. All carriers versions are interchangable you just have to delete the vendor.xml file (The one that locks it to a certain carrier). Delete the file and then use the app loader to upgrade!
The 8100 does not have wiFi capabilities.
Welcome to the forums and good luck!
