There are some Bell Mobility and Bell World stores that will be setup with the facilities to perform the required upgrades. There is also a possibility (and this is purely supposition) that Bell Mobility will allow existing RIM users to swap their existing 7250s for refurbished units loaded with OS 4.1 under the warranty exchange program.
