Cool I am so new too this!

Please Login to Remove!

I just recently got an Unlocked Blackberry Pearl 8100! Yay!

I've been reading a ton of different forums and it seems that everyone is trying to take ATT Pearls and get them to work on a TMobile OS. I have the opposite issue! I've got a TMobile Pearl and I'm trying to get it to work with the ATT OS. Is there any help anyone can lend me on how to do this? May be a completely simple answer but I've no idea about it!!!

Anything ya'll know will be helpful!!!

As you said it is Unlocked, so it should work with any GSM carrier. If you can put the SIM card in and make a phone call, it works already. Don't bother with the OS. The update software 4.3, you can find in T-mobile website or ATT website or Blackberry website, they all works well.

Awesome! Sounds great. A buddy of mine from work said I would have too upgrade the whole phone to get it too run how I would want for ATT but as long as theres no Fav 5 icons everywhere them I'm all good.
You guys are aweome!

There is no 4.3 software for the 8100 out right now. the link i provided is the latest software. 4.3 only exists on the pearl 2 (8110, 8120, 8130) at the moment
