Dear Everyone,

I went to the os 4.0 thread, and it did not meet my needs. So I am going to ask here.

Just today I recieved my new unlocked 7280. I think I love it, like I loved my other blackberry.

Heres the rub. I do not use the blackberry for the email service, it is just a cellphone pda to me.

So there is this 4.0 dangling out there for me

On my 7280 it says I have v3.7.41

How do I upgrade to 4.0, and do I want to.

In the upgrade thread it is by carriers. So I found DOBSON, and clicked.

When I download the software to my desktop then what...how do I get it open or whatever do I do next, and how do I get it from my pc to my handheld.

Please, help a moron out.

Download and install desktop manager.
Download the Handheld Software (for your carrier)
Run the downloaded Handheld software.
Connect the Blackberry
