    Purchased phone on amazon unlocked and new. However the phone was in a tellus box when I received it if that's worth mentioning. But the phone has no Tellus markings and is unlocked. What are my options for getting the 10.3 update? I have seen other threads suggesting buying a Rogers sim on ebay and attempting to update that way. I have also read unlocked blackberrys will eventually get the update directly from blackberry. Since I'm on a berry that tmo never sold, I'm sure waiting for carrier release is moot. I attempted the sim removal turning off mobile network to no avail. If I buy a Rodgers sim on ebay will I connect to a Rodgers tower all the way down in alabama? I'm loving this Q5 since switching to it from my 9900 a month ago. But I want all the latest features too and I can't afford a passport or classic. Any suggestions are appreciated?

    I suspect I bought my phone from the same source. It's now March 23rd and still no updates, nada, whether I put the SIM in or restart with it out. Blackberry Link also shows no updates. Is there any hope at all? Did the OP get the update since posting?

    Hi, if your phone is unlocked, simply insert a sim from a carrier that has pushed the update. Then connect to wifi and update. The sim does not need to be registered and you don't need to be connected to the carrier. You just need wifi. Your phone will then update. If you get the lack of memory message, just leave the sim in it and update through link.

    You can also install an autoloader or update using Sachesi.

    I've got a Q5 bought from amazon that I only use on wireless. No Sim card in it and I'm still waiting for the update too. Pretty lame to be saying that over a month after it was first released.

    Have you tried Link or Sachesi? Or why not just put an unregistered sim in from a carrier that has pushed the update and update ota over wifi?
