| | Back on the BB bandwagon; OS update question
Please Login to Remove!
So I'm back in a BB 8520 from Rogers Wireless, after a long time with out a BB. I just ordered the phone and it should be here the coming week. I haven't read up or cared much for Blackberry's in a year or so as I was kinda avoiding having to pay the bill to use one. After realizing my current bill was around $60 a month already, I could hop on a student plan with Rogers and have a Blackberry 8520 for $40 a month, cheaper and what I want.
So my question is regarding updating the OS, I'm going to assume the OS from Rogers is going to be the 4.6, 4.6 was the 'new' OS version when I was using blackberry's back when. The first thread I see in this forum today was regarding the fact you can't update with out a data plan. Now with my plan from Rogers, its a 'social' plan and bbm is included with all the social websites such as Facebook. This is considered a data plan, correct? Which means I wouldn't have an issue updating to OS 5 if should chose to, which I will.
Other than that really, I will be searching for all the other cool stuff I can do with the newer blackberrys, the last bb I had was a 8800.
