Default OS Difference between 8x30 devices?

Please Login to Remove!

Could someone explain to me what the difference is between the os versions for different 8x30 devices? For example, I have an 8130 so why can't I load device software for the 8330 on my device?

Software For BlackBerry® Curve (TM) 8330 smartphone
BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.122 (Multilanguage)
Package Version: 4.5.0.122
Consisting of:
Applications: 4.5.0.89
Software Platform: 3.2.0.52


Software For BlackBerry® Pearl (TM) 8130 smartphone
BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.122 (Multilanguage)
Package Version: 4.5.0.122
Consisting of:
Applications: 4.5.0.89
Software Platform: 3.2.0.52


Everything is the same... but when you look closer... the file size is different. So what is the difference?

They are completely different devices. The only similarity is the network they run on. The version number is the same because they were built at the same time with the same feature sets.
It's the same reason a dvd doesn't play in a cd player. The discs may be the same dimensions, but it's 2 different technologies at work.
Also, have some patience. no need to bump a topic 30 mins after starting it.
