Hate to waste your time, but, I'm looking for a site I once saw there, I believe, for free ringtones. It was a good source.

Fantastic! Thanks so much John, btw, I want to thank you for your "optimizing your bb" thread. Worked like a charm and easy to do. I really impressed my brother, whose a computer geek, when I told him that I had done with your advice! Thanks again.

Hopefully you can assist me as I desperately need info from the faqs. I have already asked a question on the 7290 board without much help. Briefly, I have a 7290 that was used for buisness email on the O2 network. I want to use for personal email on T-mobile. Can't get any signal when switched on just "searching for networks" then sos at the signal icon. In status it gives a pin FFFFFFFF which I've been told means the BB is busted.
I want to try a OS load to see how that works but don't know where to get the firmware and how to actually do the fw load.
Any help appreciated.

woah...
That's a good thing to know!! I wouldn't have ever thought that, I would have just been like, "Cool! My PIN is the hex code for white!"

How does that happen? Does anyone know?
and do cell companies do warranties on that?
