Updating the OS will not relock the BB.

You can have MP3 ringtones now with OS 4.1.
What kind of ringtones/audio can my Blackberry have? - BlackBerryFAQ
Get them:
How do I get ringtones on my BlackBerry? - BlackBerryFAQ

You can have pictures on OS 4.1.

OS 4.2xx will allow you to use the Media Manager to move pictures and ringtones.

You are welcome. I like happy people.

If only you concentrated on your spelling as much as you do having the right ringtone and OS!

Have fun!

That's because the subsidy lock has nothing to do with the OS load.
