    I've got ATT phone service and downloaded the bridge app from the forum. it works great. The bridge browser works without any problems. If 2.0 requires me to get the new bridge app from appworld that blocks bridge browser, I may skip the 2.0 update. Anybody know the answer?

    The answer is "yes it will". I base this on the whole "using your phone to control your PlayBook" deal. But, when the new Bridge app comes out, I will just wait for rroyy to post it up as OTA and do the same thing I've been doing for months now.

    edit - If you already downloaded the Bridge app here on the forum, why are you panicing about a new version anyway? Why not just get the new version from the same place you did last time?

    Yes it will require an update, and you will be missing out on some great features.

    I noticed the OP has been a member since 5/09, has an 8320, does not list a Playbook as one of his devices, and only has 3 posts! Would anyone expect anything but a RIM bashing post?

    Saying you are refraining from saying something unpleasant is the equivalent of doing so. Thus, your mother failed.

    yes it will require an updated version of the Blackberry bridge, especially to do some of the great functions they are planning to unleash. if you are this concerned about your access to the Bridge Browser given you are on AT&T, as others have said simply wait for the new version of your particular Bridge app to support the features that the official RIM version will.

    You posted this before and I deleted it. Post count and whatever they choose to list or not list as their devices is irrelevant.
    And at what point is asking a question about a Bridge update bashing RIM?

    If you can't add something constructive to the thread, move along.

    don't worry rroyy works fast. You will be fine.

    One thing you might want to look into though..I'm not sure if 8320 runs os5 or not but I think I read somewhere that bridge 2.0 will run on os5 and up.

    Yes but there are a host of new features to bridge aside from just using the phones data ie. open up.

    I doubt bridge is ever going anywhere, I feel its a great selling point, I know I'm not alone in saying... I love my tablet but if it required a data plan to use when away from wifi then no tablet at all for me, I pay enough for data, not going to get a plan for a tablet

    Yes, this is in fact one of my concerns. I am running a Telus (Canadian) curve 8330 on CDMA and in order to get the bridge to work had to get an out of country 5.x OS and use BBSAK to get it on there. Many of the features of OS4.x are retained, some of the 5's good stuff is in there, and then I had to get rroyys bridge, which works great, but some apps for 5 just don't work 100%, and I have to do a pull every other day due to memory leaks, otherwise black screen and hourglass forever...
    If the OP is concerned about the loss of features, specifically the bridge browser, then he may well be using PB and bridge already. And seeing how some are treating him, why wouldn't he just stay in the bushes and watch our fellow forumites tear everyone else down.

    Like him, I crave the goodness of 2.0 but the latest bridge update never took on my phone. But if there is way, I know the CB nation will find it for me!

    And for you naysayers, try the Ebenezer Scrooge upgrade: "and it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge." Stop Grinching, life is too short!

    I want to apologize to robby999 and to Michelle Haag ,the forum moderator, for my comments! I took the op's original post in the wrong way! I just wish the moderators in some of the other RIM forums were as quick to delete or stop the RIM bashing! I am sorry if I hurt anyone's feelings! I enjoy Crackberry and all it has to offer.
