Im a whiz with my 8700c but that is my first and only Blackberry, so im not sure about a few things:

Can i use the same Bharti/Telstra OS on the 7130c i use on my 8700c? Or do i need to wait till model specific OS's are released?

Will same 3rd party apps that worked on my 8700c work on the 7130c?

Each provider makes their own software package (includes the OS and some browsers and stuff), so just download the latest package from your test provider and install that (sometimes the units come with an old OS). Follow the download links to your 7130 model.

the apps work with the OS, not the unit. So, if you have the same OS on both units the apps will work.
