Default Which Software for an Unlocked 7100g

Please Login to Remove!

I purchased an unlocked 7100g. I am a Tmobile customer. What software do you download? The Tmobile software or the cingular software that the phone was orginally designed. I have had two seperate opinions from tech support and do not want to do anything that would prevent using it at all. Thanks for insight in advance.

I would run the software from the carrier I am currently using. I would use the T-Mobile 7100 software on the 7100g.

when you are unable to load it, search the forums for vendor.xml and follow those instructions to delete the file then load the OS software. the reason you'd want to use the current carrier software (T-Mobile) rather than the original carrier software (Cingular) is that TMO *could* have made some tweaks and additions to the code that would fix issues related to their network. in most cases, this point really won't matter one way or the other, but you never know... you can read through the Cingular release notes and notice some of these area-specific fixes (I think Oakland, CA or something was mentioned in one of them).
