I just received my new BB 7130e and I noticed that the software is a version behind. I have tried to download it from Verizon's website and I receive an error message that my phone is not a valid verizon wireless number.

Has anyone else seen this?

It is a corporate phone, so I was not sure if I called they would allow me to download the software (We are new to this)...

Last I checked on the Verizon downloadsite, the OS was the same as distributed on the 7130. What makes you think there's a newer version available for download?

I was thinking the same thing. Could you share the URL of the Verizon page you were looking at? Maybe I'm looking in all the wrong places.

There may be some confusion with Bell Canada's 7130e...they use a higher rev of software.

There are some sub-compenents of the Smithmicro download that ~are~ newer than those on the shipping 7130e as of last week (when I last tried a new out-of-box 7130e). Things like certs and help files. Nothing too huge.. maybe Task Manager too. I can't recall exactly but it wasn't a bit deal. -Pk

That may be true. But the designation for the smithmicro download has the same firmware number as that distributed. Unless it fixes the EVDO dropouts and/or bluetooth crashed I'll pass on it.

Interestingly enough I saw a different version of the OS that came on my 'swap out' 7130e. The replacement unit stayed locked into Data Connection Refused and level 3 tech support had me download and install the software from VZW. When I reinstalled I reverted back to the normal OS. I didn't write down the version number unfortunately. The battery icon was fully intact and the unread mail icons were yellow (they really stood out). I don't know what else was different. I wonder if that's the new firmware, uncompleted. My replacement unit also has a round blue sticker in the rear that reads "01/06".

Unless you are having severe problems, i would wait till the software fix is released from Verizon. There are many war stories on the forum with those who load carrier-unsupported firmware.

I am using the Bell M canadian software on my 7130e and it works like a charm. Totally stopped my bluetooth resetting errors and phone restarts. The only small issue I have now is that when someone calls me while i'm using bluetooth, and im on the phone already, it disconnects the line im talking to. Otherwise, I think this will work out great until Verizon releases a new firmware rev.

I installed Bell's version on my VZW 7130e about six hours ago. So far I've been stuck on 1XEV since then. Before the update it would go to 1X and stay there. So far, so good.

I can not even log on to the software update page for VZW. It tells me my number is not valid. I'm not a new customer. I'll have to call and see if they can fix that.

For anyone considering installing either the Bell or Telus OS to resolve the bluetooth reboot, I have two words: do it. The installation, following the instructions posted at howardforums.com, for example, went very smoothly and the phone worked exactly as a bluetooth phone should work immediately after the installation was complete. Sitting in my den, about twenty feet from my car (parked in the garage), the phone immediately located the car kit and asked if I wanted to pair the two devices. Every time I get into the car, the car kit emits a beep within thirty seconds indicating that the phone has connected with the car kit...no more having the manually connect the phone to the car kit and no more holding my breath hoping that the phone doesn't crash while or as a result of it connecting to the car kit. As an aside, the experience only reinforces everything I've come to know and expect about Verizonwireless over the past several years: that they put more emphasis on bringing products out than on the needs and concerns of its customers. VZW's work on its OS, by comparison to the Bell OS just seems sloppy. Beyond its failure to get the problems with BT ironed out before releasing the OS, the VZW designers couldn't even get the battery icon (notcie that the icon appears sliced in half) fully drawn. Just plain sloppy. Unfotunately, VZW is the only provider with the 7130e in my area so I'm stuck with them. Otherwise, this constant dumbing down of its equipment (I also own a V710 which was so shoddy that it's been the subject of a class action suit) has gotten very old.

I installed the Tellus software on my Verizon 7130E and since then my Bluetooth and EVDO have worked perfectly. However, it seems that the actually phone connection and clarity is compromised. Has anyone else experienced this?

Dewars

The last few days of using my 7130e upgraded to Bell's OS version has been great. Bluetooth has worked flawless. EVDO signal has not been lost once. Its been great, knock on wood! :)

It even fixes the crappy VZW theme and its still crappy! Who knows when VZW will release their update. For those who have not done the upgrade you should.

I'm perusing the forums via my 7130e right now so searching is hard to do, but as far as I can tell no Verizon customer who has made the switch to Bell's firmware has experienced any adverse issues. Correct? Does it fix the problem with mp3s cutting off the first second and playing only a few times? I've seen in these forums that Verizon is working on a fix for that but didn't know if it was incorporated into the firmware update.

I'm a total newbie here, but I have a VZW 7130e that is less than 2mos old and it appears that my handheld version software is v4.1.0.117 (Platform 2.2.0.53).

I've not experienced the bluetooth issue at all, and unfortunately I live in an area without EVDO coverage (for now waiting for this summer) so I can't comment on EVDO service.

But I thought I'd mention that it seems to me that VZW does have a 4.1 OS. In fact you can download it here.

I used my Bluetooth handset and Tethering for a few days without problems and then it started. And it only got worse. Then I finally realized it was booting without me knowing it because certain app. 'locations' would go back to initial. And finally it would make me re-pair the headset with the handheld. I eventually got more annoyed with it than it was worth. -Pk

I installed the Bell OS and it has been working flawlessly. Bluetooth, no dropped EVDO connections (using it to type this), and the verizon theme works well now. The battery icon is not screwed up, and when you send sms, the icon will show you a little 'D' when it is delivered to the other handset. I don't remember the 'D' showing up before, but I may have missed it.

To be honest, I think I will wait and see if I upgrade to verizon's code when they release it since this is working well now.

I just ungraded my Verizon 7130E to Bell's software. (I had rearlier replaced Verizon's with Telus because of problems with 1x, Bluethooth, etc. but was unhappy with the sound quality of the incoming phone calls.) Now it works perfectly! EVDO, phone quality, browser, Bluetooth all good.
Highly recommended. Don't hesitate. The current version of Verizon software will NOT run the 7130E properly. FYI: There's a trick with replacing the application that someone published a while ago on this site. It would be great if that person could put it up again. It was well detailed and clear.

I did installed it yesterday. All I did was make a copy of the vendor.xml file in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader\ and then after first running the Bell install, overwrote the vendor.xml it installed with my original. Then I ran the loader and everyone worked perfectly.

Patience is needed. It took a while for my BB to initialize after all was done. The EVDO seems more stable now, and the bluetooth reboot issue is gone. So far so good.

Suit has been settled...

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) - Blackberry maker Research in Motion said Friday it agreed to pay $612.5 million to patent holding company NTP to settle a long-running dispute that had threatened to shut down the popular wireless e-mail service.

Canadian-based Research in Motion (Research) announced the settlement late Friday ahead of a U.S. judge's expected ruling on damages in the case.

Under the settlement, NTP granted RIM the right to keep running its Blackberry business, the company said in a statement.

The agreement has been finalized and NTP's lawsuit against RIM has been dismissed by a court order, the Canadian company said.

The settlement means no further court proceedings or decisions about damages are necessary, RIM said. Top of page

a google search of the original error message is common with install shield built installers. some proxy's and AV engines may alter the file on DL and cause install to error. if you have any AV tools and/or firewalls you may want to try to DL the file with them off. Or DL the file from some other connection to the internet and bring it over to your windows pc on cd or usb memory.

Because I can. The company will make more on my monthly charges then what it costs to replace a phone.

Oh and next time don't call me out on the board if you've got an issue with something thats what private messages are for.

I'm not defending Verizon for putting out a buggy release of software...in fact it's frustrating as hell. I think ethics apply to everyone; companies and customers alike. The same mentality, IMHO, is what causes juries to award outrageously large damages to plaintiffs...big company or big insurance company can afford it.

Let's face it, there is no free lunch. So when Verizon's operating costs go up, so do the fees that all of us pay for service. So if that makes me "a herb", so be it.

And for whatever it's worth, my whole point was to try to get an intelligent discussion here on the ethics of returning something for an exchange that was not defective. I was not trying to call anyone out. I just happen to disagree with apple's post. Fact is, I can do a lot of things, but that doesn't make them right.

Boring - Just to play devil's advocate for a moment, but clearly there is something defective with the VZW product as they are currently selling it otherwise this entire thread would be moot and people would not be looking to retrofit the Bell OS for the VZW device.

Not that your ethics discussion would not make for an entertaining opportunity for everyone to fire up their flamethrowers, but thats more appropriate in another thread and topic.

I'm more interested in learning how/when we can fix our phones.

Obviously a buggy phone is annoying and quite Frankly is becoming somewhat of the norm, unfortunately. We all are a bunch of Beta testers.

What is totally unacceptable is Verizon's Sloooooow response to fixing the issues.

I wouldn't be surprised if we don't see a firmware upgrade until the summer.

I wonder how many class action suits against Verizon it will take for them to "move" on fixing these issues in a timely manner.

I agree wholeheartedly with the comments about the buggy software, and as a user I am as frustrated as everyone else. Maybe I've just gotten used to the overall lack of quality in programming.

I don't think the other providers have been any faster with fixes, but they have had the 7100s out longer.

for as much as they charge and we continue to pay we ought to see better service...

Now I know it's not fair to compare computer software to cell phone software, but I mean it's really not rocket science for Verizon to keep up when they've got the cash flow they do. Hell they are number 2 in the country with 36 million customers!

I just talked to a tech at VZW and they told me that I have the most recent version of the handheld software. Although, based on the forum there is a new version available. I noticed that the download site for verizon has an update showing with a date of yesterday, what is going on?

I installed the update today. The install went smoothly and my device appears to be working fine. The navigation speed thru menus seems improved and I've been trying to test the BT rebooting error and have not seen my VZW 7130e reboot once. (FWIW I use a MOT HS850)

Unfortunately I live in a non-EVDO area and cannot comment on if the issues with that have been resolved.

Do far, the EVDO drops I see here at work have stopped. Lets hope it continues.

Tech's probably are a bit clueless as the firmware update was posted to the vzw business site.

I am able to access the update through the standard VZW site by logging into my account and going to phone/device support.

Trying to upgrade (Bell) my 7130e VZW and I have a MB Pro Core Duo 2.

Does anyone have directions for us MAC users?

Thanks in advance for the help.

There is a whole forum discussion dedicated to Mac users called the Mac User's Corner.

Yes, I know. Doesn't help me concerning the upgrade on my phone unless you know of a specific thread that deals with the recent update and how to load it on a 7130e with a MAC.
