take out the battery and it will say under there, or go to options>about and it should tell you.

if it says 8100, its 8100, you cant change that with a software upgrade, unless you changed the circuit board, which I dont even know if its possible or why you would do such a thing.

You can't upgrade firmware from one model to the other. Only 8100 can upgrade to 8100; You can't mix an 8110 firmware on a 8100 model. Just not happening.

The 8100 does not have built-in GPS.

Well, how about on this BB, you have now, go to Options > Advanced > GPS. What do you see there?

That's because the 8100 does NOT have GPS built in. It's not part of the hardware.
