View Full Version : 8700r O/S on 8700g ?

Hey, just wondering if anyone would know if it's possible to install the 8700r operating system onto an 8700g? It seems like it would work as the phones have the same features, etc... I'll probably try it this week.

I want to do this because I bought an unlocked 8700g but I'm with Rogers (looking back now it wasn't the best choice..). Anyway I need the Rogers WAP browser...

Thanks in advance! 8-)

Changing the software from one 8700 version to another will not get you the browser. All of the software (8700r, 8700g, 8700v, 8700whatever) is written by RIM and tested and released by the carriers. No customization.

Do you have a BlackBerry Data Plan?

Oh ok, I thought that there was a Rogers WAP browser on the 8700r's.

No, I only have an unlimited web browsing plan (normal data)
