Default no in-call time

I've noticed that i no longer have a call-timer while I am in the call.

I don't know where the elapsed timer went.

That is actually a feature I use.

Anyone else notice this?

Yes, it disappeared in one of the more recent updates. Not sure what happened to it but it would be nice to see it return.

I got a guy that wants me to put Arabic and an over sea's PRL on his Phone. I have the PRL & SID and I know how to do that part but the Arabic? His 8130 preal currently is Verizon with a 4.5.0.77 OS. Verizon & Blackbery are saying "Downloads via a USB connection are not enabled for this product" Here: well noobie so, h t t p : / / mobileapps.blackberry.com/devicesoftware/entry.do?code=vzwlanguagepack . it only availiable OTA. I 'm not about to sign a contract just to download the Arabic language so:

Does this Multilanguage OS support Arabic? Is this the lates one? Is there anything extra i need to do, other then the directions below to go from verizon 4.5.0.77 to this OS.

Default iBerry 3G theme

I noticed that after upgrading to 4.5.0.205/138, the music player icon no longer displays when using the iBerry 3G theme. Anybody else see this? I have contacted the theme maker but no response yet.

How do we complain and who do we complain to?

This one is kinda important to me.

Red face Don't laugh my OS 4.3.0.81

So, it has been a long time based on the version I have on my 8130. Question is if it ain't broke, why fix it. Am I going to see benefits of upgarding to the latest version or headaches installing it? Thanks.

This is how I see it: If the consensus is good (which it is in this case--unless you REALLY, REALLY value the call timer), there is ALL the reason to upgrade. The reason I say that is, there really are no headaches in the installation process if you know what you're doing. It is for this reason that I really frown upon the "If it ain't broke don't fix it" logic.
Well... I'm not even going to bother listing the pros of 4.5 over 4.3. Actually, that possibility got me thinking.. you might have some 3rd party apps that don't work in 4.5, but I can't even think of a popular program where that is the case.

So I got the update from the Desktop Manager I now have v4.5.0.127 Since the upgrade all of my apps are working that previously did not. However, my media player isn't working properly. When I play music and set it to play continuously after the second song my phone reboots itself. Anyone have any idea why or how I can fix it? I've done a hard reboot as well.

No it will not. There is a sticky for the 8110.

Latest OS: 8110 4.5.0.174/4.5.0.124 (English + East Asian)

Did anyone else have computer problems after installing this software? I installed BB desktop and the new OS on my fiance's computer (as I have a mac) and he's insisting that it has messed something up, although no virus has been picked up from he virus scan, his computer hasn't been working properly since.

Any thoughts?

Default New Alltel download

I just found this so I thought I would post it.

Software For BlackBerry® Pearl (TM) 8130 smartphone
BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.205 (Multilanguage)

This is from Alltel, but will load to ANY 8130 by following the instructions below.

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.253 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.5.0.253
Consisting of:

* Applications: 4.5.0.160
* Software Platform: 3.4.0.41
* File name: 8130uAMEA_PBr4.5.0_rel253_PL3.4.0.41_A4.5.0.160_Al ltel.exe

* File size: 88 MB

Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.
Download here: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/browseSoftware.do

Instructions for installing on ANY carrier's 8130:

1. Download the above OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the file you downloaded.
2. Go to c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader and delete the file named "vendor.xml."
3. Plug in BB and double click on "Loader.exe." It's located in the same place as the above vendor.xml file.

The process takes about 45 minutes to an hour depending on how much data you have to backup and restore during the process. Once it's done loading the new OS it will reboot (it may do this twice during the entire process.) You will see a white screen with an hourglass for up to 20 minutes at a time while the DM says "waiting for initialization."
If, for some reason, you end up with a white screen with small icons and the number 507, simply connect to the PC again and run Loader.exe again and it should load the OS to the device.

How to determine if you have an ESN or MEID based device.
From the main menu, select Options, then select Status.
ESN devices - On the Status screen you will see ESN on the display
MEID devices – On the Status screen you will see MEID on the display.
NOTE – You cannot install ESN-based software on a MEID device, nor can you install MEID-based software on an ESN device. They are NOT interchangeable.

Whoa, nice!!!! Now... anyone care to be the guinea pig and test it out before I install it myself? Haha

BTW, here is a correct link to the Alltel download:

I installed it. So far it looks good. For me, a little more memory available and the device is slighter more responsive.
