Red face Is it possible to update the OS on BB7230?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi folks,

I am at the very beginning of the BB way so I have some Qs )

I have purchased bb 7230 unlocked (seller advised that there is no sim lock and no net lock) from eBay.

I live in Estonia and unfortunately there is no carrier supporting BB data plan or whatsoever. But as far it is unlocked I can still use it for calls and messages as well as a good data keeper and scheduler.

When I check the status it says 3.7.121.

I was wondering if I download the latest software and manage to install it on my BB will this unlock still be there or my BB will return to its original T-Mobile state and be locked again?

Hope I am not a pain in my enquiry)))

Hey Miuku,

Read over this thread about upgrading your OS:
http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...-firmware.html

It will not delete your unlock. Once unlocked, unlocked forever.

To confirm it is unlocked:

Good luck!
