Thumbs up Generic Blackberry 8100 Firmware

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to unlock the features AT&T locks out? Does this require a generic firmware update or is there even a way to do this.

Thanks for your help this is my first and i love it just wish i could use yahoo instant messenger.

You can't make the device "unbranded." Loading another OS will not remove branding from the phone.

For IM I recommend JiveTalk.
