Second, the software version on it is: V.188.8.131.52. To what I've seen there's a new version but here's my problem:
If the BB is unlocked (but T-mobile branded) wich provider I use to upgrade my software BB. If I use T-mobile will it lock it again or can I use the upgrade from my the provider that I use it with wich is canadian Rogers?
To my knowledge, each provider has a different "flavor" of the handheld software. For example, my T-mobile handheld software has a custom browser icon. The Verizon equivalent however does not include a custom browser icon. I'd suggest you use the software from your local provider.
As for the freezing, it happens. It just depends on what you are doing. My BB, for example, freezes when I have lengthy conversations via Yahoo IM.
