Nothing yet...you should just keep checking these forums as it will be posted a soon as someone sees it. Or you can just search the Cingular web site , bookmark the page that has teh software and check it three times a day if you need to have it that bad.

Your phone will say AT&T when AT&T changes it on its network signal (sorry don't know the technical way to say it). Updating the OS will not change that.

Current version on Cingular site:

Software For BlackBerry Pearl (8100c)

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.0.88 (Multilang)

Package Version: 4.2.0.88
Consisting of:

* Applications: 4.2.0.71
* Software Platform: 2.2.0.41
* File name: 8100M_PBr4.2.0_rel88_PL2.2.0.41_A4.2.0.71_Cingular .exe
* File size: 68.01MB

Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.

* Download Software

I think he was trying to say that until AT&T drops the Cingular name, your phone will still say Cingular, regardless of the OS. At the point that AT&T says, everyone from Cingular is now on AT&T and that's all we're going to call it, it will switch to AT&T. Right now I have the OS downloaded from Cingular on my TMO phone and it shows up TMO. The name shown is what your network carrier is called, no changing that. Hope this helps!

Probably. That's IF there's an updated OS. It could simply be a rendering for effect. There's no guarantee that it's an actual screenshot.

I just bought the new red pearl today. AT&T just put it on the shelf. I bought the first one. It says at&t all over it and when you start up, but it still says cingular on the screen as the network i am connected to.

Yes... until they change the carrier name they broadcast from.

the att or cingular logo is just placed in the background of the skin... like verizon uses their gigantic v in their backgrounds...

My favorite theme for now is the vodafone today, because it has not branding with the latest cingular 88 package.

The time and dates are also correctly displayed ex.. 3/28 and not 28/3
