Default Re: Bold 9000 T-Mo / 3G / Unlocking issues

Ok, so I got the Bold unlocked and got my T-Mo SIM in the thing.

Since there was no option for the Bold 9000 on the T-Mo website, I choose the BB Curve 8900 (figuring it was the closest match), and registered it that way on the HRT and the service books. My email accounts all transferred over and are working fine. Regular text and picture messages also working.

However, no t-zones browser, in fact, the regular BB browser icon is missing from the menu tray. My work around was to assign the left convenience key to the regular internet browser. It works fine, gets on the web fine.

My concern is using the 8900 as the assigned phone on T-Mo's site. I haven't heard of this fix before and I was wondering if this will cause any issues, either with the service provider (since it isn't the right phone) or the phone itself. So far, everything is working fine.

Also, should I bother going up to 5.0 on this device? It is running 4.6 and I don't see any real problems with 4.6 at this time. What more could I get if I got it up to 5.0? Thanks.
