Just so you are aware, for your 7100i, there is now newer handheld software available for the 7100i. You can go to the webpage www. "nextel.com/blackberry" and arrive at the "Blackberry Solutions" web page. From there, scroll down and on the very right side is a section called "Software and Upgrades". Select the link "Software Updates for Blackberry 7520 and 7100i" to go to a new web page. Once at the new page, a drop down menu appears labled "Please Select a Product". Click on the drop down menu, choose "Blackberry 7100i (TM)", click NEXT and download the latest 4.1 HHSW for your device.
Before doing this you can check the HHSW version currently preloaded on your device by going to Options/About and looking at the 3rd line down. It will say something like "...v4.1xxxx ... platform....". Check to see what version it is and see if it matches the new HHSW version made available this week. That will ensure you have the latest update for your device and allow for support of all applications, ringtones, games, wall paper and anything else you would like to have for your device.
Hope this helps.
