7290 gift unusable , Sad T_T
Hi !

I need help on a t-mobile 7290 BB that I received as a gift from my aunt. She didn't give me the software CD along with it just the charger and a USB cable.
I see a message 507 when I turn the BB on , I know that this BB needs to be unlocked cause I live in Asia. Is there anyway that you guys can help me , List the tips on what i should have to do ? Thanks :D and God Bless !

Good luck... ask back if you need.

I can't download the Desktop from T-mobile
I can't download the Desktop Manager from T-mobile , cause I don't use their carrier. T_T , I was wondering If i could use a different OS for my pc and a different OS for my handheld instead.

desktop manager doesnt have to be from Tmobile, just the device software.

I can't seem to download the handheld OS
Ok , here's what I have in mind , i'll wipe the handhelp with the CJ , and replace it with the handheld OS from BB , does this make my handhelp operable and lock free ?

I got this Hour glass on the screen , I used the BB desktop manager after the CJ
program. what's my next step ? Do i really need a t-mobile for this one ?

No. Did you follow these instructions exactly?

How do I upgrade the OS on my BlackBerry? -

If the OS is installing it can take up to 1.25 hours to do so. Hour glass on and off the whole time.

Got it ! but I need to unlock it.
I need to unlock it unfortunately , I can't have a paypal or anything cause the country I am from would allow me if I was above 18. Is there anyway like flashing etc to unlock this.

Blackberry interface is so damn cool ! :D
