How are you trying to send/receive mail? Are you logging into your mail accounts via your BB Browser? You shouldn't need to. You can add your accounts to your device and they will have an icon for each mail account.

Nice job on the post!

But now I have been using DM 4.7 and just got the DM 5.0. I seem to have the issue of the downgrade of Documents To Go. I tried to follow the instructions on how to disable this issue from the post, but there is no such folder (C:\program files\common files\research in motion\shared\Loader Files.....). Can someone help me to figure out how to resolve this. I have some other Apps I want to load, but because of this issue, I can not proceed. It will either downgrade or remove it. I am unable to disable or delete it from the list.

Please, any suggestions? ( I have read everything I can so far on the web and nothing is helping or working!!

Install your version of the handheld OS to the PC. Then delete the vendor.xml as as explained. Once the handheld OS is installed then you can go delete/rename the DocumentsToGo.alx file to DocumentsToGo.old. Then Docs to go shouldn't want to downgrade.

Search your PC for vendor.xml and delete any instance of it. Also, if you could post the error you're receiving, it may help.

Mods - please weigh in here if you can - is point 6 still valid in the original post? Is there ANY difference between a beta and official if app/package versions still the same? Many people on bbhybrids and cb are saying there are some differences between the tour .419 beta leak and the mts official release. 07-24-2010 01:59 PM

OS Upgrade for unlocked BB

A really comprehensive myth buster.. Thanks! :)

One question though - Will upgrading the OS on an UNLOCKED BB relock the phone? Any precautions to be taken prior to upgrading?


John Clark 08-01-2010 12:23 AM

There's nothing you can do to relock your phone.

Read the threads on the latest OS version you are installing. If you're satisfied then go ahead with the upgrade. You can always downgrade back, if all else fails.

Possible addition --

If you upgrade, some games will lose their progress and you will have to start over. Examples are shoppers paradise, bubble army2, and civilization.

i have brought an unlocked phone blackberry 8830. do i need to unlock it again after upgrading the OS?

Re: BlackBerry OS (and "Beta" OS) Upgrade Myths Dispelled:
Nope. Once unlocked, always unlocked. It's not an iPhone.
