Exclamation Question about upgrading OS. Better to WIPE and INSTALL then UPGRADE...

Please Login to Remove!

Hi I recently purchased a 8900 curve and i love it compared to the pearl i've had for 4 years...

I see the process has changed when upgrading OS's on the berries. Back then you would launch Desktop Manager and first use Application Loader to DELETE or wipe the OS and then you would install the new OS.

When following the instructions for upgrading the 8900 to the .250 OS (im' coming from the 114), the instructions simply say to use LOADER.EXE located in the program files folder where VENDOR.XML is located.

Is this actually doing a clean wipe? It looks more like upgrading. Because my facebook application and emails are still on the blackberry (although my contacts are gone)

Call me old school but I feel more comfortable if a clean install was done rather than an upgrade.

Is LOADER.EXE really upgrading or wiping first?
