Default OS Update Removes Hotspot@Home?

Please Login to Remove!

If I do updates on my Curve, will that mess up anything w/ Hotspot@Home for T-Mobile? Thanks

It may delete your settings for connecting, like your WEP key and APN settings, but H@H will be part of your service book pack and will be resent to your BB when you re-send your service books. So you won't lose having it as a service you're entitled to. Being able to use it without re-entering your settings may be another issue. Logging into your BIS page with your carrier and resending your service books is a necessary step with T-Mobile. On AT&T you simply use your Blackberry to register with the network and your service books are pushed to your BB automatically.

I don't believe service books are involved with using HotSpot@Home on an 8320. There are two UMA certificates that control the ability to use that service:

T-Mobile USA, Inc. Engineering and Operations
T-Mobile USA, Inc. Root CA

If you are missing those then UMA will not work at all. You can find those certificates at Options > Security Options > Certificates.

So... Lets say I go buy a Curve for T-Mobile. And I update the OS (using method found on this forum)...

Will that cause any problems w/ my Hotspot@Home service? If it does, can I fix it by reloading service books/certificates or anything else?

Thanks

If you purchase a Curve from T-Mobile it should have the certificates it needs already. If it doesn't, you have two options:

1. Wipe Handheld to restore them.
2. Go to Help > Blackberry HELP! web site > then select the "HotSpot @Home (UMA) is not working on my Blackberry Curve 8320" option.

Upgrading the OS will not change your ability to use the H@H feature. If, for some reason, it doesn't work just follow step 2 in Dave's post above. Many, including me, are not using the 4.2.2.180 OS version released by TMobile. I have 4.2.2.184 from some Asian carrier and UMA works just fine.
