Not really buying the one. T-Mobile has not released OS 5.0 for anything - no one has - and 5.0.0.90 isn't even the latest beta! So I don't think they pushed it.

ok you can believe what you want, im just stating that i was prompted to upgrade to 5.0.0.90 via desktop manager, i didnt go fishing for beta's or any other firmware. i had 4.6.1.250 loaded. btw have you attached your bb to your computer and tried loading desktop manager and see what you find?

and of course it isnt the latest beta! why would RIM release a beta via DM??? i would have taken better pix of the OS options but my phone is locked when DM is open. ill try to use a friends cam phone. and attach a pic

and this is where it falls down.
it states "local installation of OS"
this means its installed on the PC.

So, you never downloaded Handheld OS 5.0.0.90 for the Bold onto your computer?

I think NJ meant to say the 8900, as that is what you have and there is a beta OS 5 for it with the same numbers as the bold.

Actually I saw the 9000 in your profile and mistook it for his.
In any event, thread is changed to "nevermind" status ;)
