Default Newbie question about Flip on AT&T

Please Login to Remove!

I am looking for a new phone. I currently use a SIM unlocked Tilt, and I am tired of Win Mo[I call it Slo Mo].

I was goping to get a Bold, but research has shown alot of dropped calls on that device - So I have been looking at other Blackberry's.

The other one I really like is the Pearl Flip.

My question is, If I get an unlocked PF, how will that work w/ AT&T as far as firmware updates, etc..?

TIA

It will be perfectly fine on ATT.

I have had a Bold on ATT since before ATT got the device, and having very little trouble with it. No more dropped calls than usual.

Thanks for the reply.

How has your reception been with the Bold?

I have an unlocked Flip on AT&T with no problems at all. Did the OS upgrade with no trouble. Everything works great.

to smpst46: do you have a data plan for BB? I have been having trouble getting the MMS service books over to my unlocked TMO 8220 (v4.6.0.180(Platform 4.1.0.61)). I was told by a BB ATT rep that BB's with OS V4.3 and later have the option to send and receive all MMS formats(pic, vid, etc...) without having a data plan. I have the unlimited txting plan. My phone is up to date, running a version higher than v4.3, yet i still can't get the service books for MMS. I have even tried my sim in a TMO 8100 running v4.5.0.55 (Platform 2.7.0.68) and it works just fine. any help, suggestions, i just can't get this to work.....

With a T-Mobile BB on AT&T you will need an AT&T BB data plan to get the books for MMS. Use the plan for a month and then cancel if you want and the books remain.

Checkout this thread for more info on using ATT on the 8220.
