just curious as to why anyone screwing around with any 4 version. 5 is so much better. but i recommend a wipeout and not upgrade. EVERYTIME i do upgrades my phone completetly goes to crap. everyone else does upgrades and they end up whining. it's not that hard to do wipeout and clean install. AND IT WORKS EVERYTIME. better then the bugs from upgrades.
download desktop 5.01 first. control panel, add/remove, programs, and remove any phone software already installed on pc. back up your phone befire wiping out. and grab whatever 188.8.131.52.
any 4 isn't worth screwing around with anymore. when 5 is the future. and for the curve. it's many enhancements. and added features.
threaded text messaging with smileys is the selling point alone. let alone everything else.
