Default DST Questions

Please Login to Remove!

I have a few questions.

I didn't know about the DST 2007 Patch for the Pearl until the other day.

I manually changed the time on my phone, I am about to go home, backup my BB data, and apply the new patch, and restore the backup stuff to it.

Should I put the patch on there now?

If you've gone this long, I'd wait and do just like your steps say. You should be just fine.

You should. Follow the steps that you posted in the initial post and you'll be fine. Sorry, should have maybe clarified that.

Hey BamaFan... Roll Tide.

I don't understand why you are backing and restoring after the DST patch, though, that is not required for a DST patch. Just go the site FROM your BB browser, and it will automatically detect your BB device and model, etc...

Either way it'll be fine. I just figured if he has a plan to do a backup/restore as well as other things, might as well stick to his plan.

Yep. Mainly I just needed the chance to say ROLL TIDE! The rest was dribble.

Roll Tide :]

And I am backup and restoring, because I thought that when you upgrade your BB software it clear your BB.

I am installing the new software from TMobile's site.
