Hi,
Does anyone know if T-Mobile will release the new OS 4.5 for the 8820?

Thanks

Probably eventually but why wait? Go to the 8300 series forum and select the sticky with the latest update for the 8320. Follow instructions exactly as written and you will be able to upgrade it without waiting. General 8300 Series Discussion - Curve - BlackBerryForums.com : Your Number One BlackBerry Community (http://www.blackberryforums.com/general-8300-series-discussion-curve/)

Note that this forum does not post links to beta software. Links posted are to valid releases of OSs. It just may be released by a vendor other than yours. The instuctions are great and tell you how to install. If you run into problems, post your questions in the appropriate forum and the mods (as well as other users) are great about helping.

Only T-Mobile really knows the answer to that one, I think.

As suggested above, you can always go to the 8800 section of the forum and download 4.5. If you need support, you can always find it here!

Do you think you can install the 8300 software on 8820?

NO! You need to install an 8820 OS ONLY. Do not attempt to load any other OS other than one for your device. The above post linked you to an incorrect location. You want to look in the 8800 section of the forums as rachamphetamine stated.

Welcome to the forums and good luck.

No -- the carriers do not announce BB OS updates.

Sorry, in my initial post, I mis-read the OPs device as 8320 vice 8820. Should have directed him to the 8800 series forum here: General 8800 Series Discussion - BlackBerryForums.com : Your Number One BlackBerry Community (http://www.blackberryforums.com/general-8800-series-discussion/) and told him to select the sticky with the latest OS for the 8820.

Absolutely, most definitely, cannot install the OS from another model on yours. Must be the OS for the specific model BB you have.

I installed the 8820 os 4.5 from At&t this weekend, everything worked fine. I called the t-mobile customer service before doing it and the rep told me it should work fine and she knows of a lot of people who did the installation without any problems. She was right.
