Will 2.0 require update of phone bridge app?
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?

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?Southern Illinois does not start at the southern edge of Cook County! (Chicago) It is about 250 miles South of there!! I really wish Illinois politicians knew this!!!

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.

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.

Curve 83xx and 5.0 hybrids
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.
