no, all you need is download the newest Blackberry OS (for pearl is from TIM)
then install it to your computer. after that, go to c:/program files/common files/Research In Motion/AppLoader and delete vendor.xml
after that. run Desktop Manager, connect your Pearl to cable, then wait till Upgrade option show in your PC screen. after that, follow the order.
after upgrade finish, it takes about 15-45 minutes for startup your Pearl. after that go to option - about to check your new firmware.

if i snagged the latest OEM blackberry OS, you're saying i wouldn't need to reconfigure to get everything to work like it does now with the OS i am using from tmo ? i would think it'd need to be reconfigured....
this is my first bb, pardon my ignorance....
