    Default New software update is available

    I just got an email from RIM saying that there are new updates available. I'm on my way to work so I don't get to play with it now. Does anybody know what 4.7.1 will offer?

    The Desktop Manager will backup all your data and apps. Just make sure to pay attention to the options you are given during the update process.

    ALWAYS backup your phone first. Always always always always! Even if the Loader or DM does it for you, ALWAYS do it, that way you can go back easily and do selective restores/updates when needed. Always!

    This is probably 4.7.1.53, but would need to confirm. There is a long post about it in the Beta/Hybrid forum. I'm already running that OS version, and I don't show an available update.

    No email here, but connected the phone and loaded Desktop Manager and guess what... it's updating! Will report back with results in a few minutes.

    That is considered 3rd generation (3g) technology and its not gonna change. GSM devices are the ones who show the actual 3G symbol.

    Just got off the phone with VZW tech support and there's no wireless update available for this yet. VZW won't make an OTA update available for this release until they officially approve it, which, per tech support, hasn't happened yet.

    If you're on a PC, you'll have to update via Desktop Manager. If you're on a Mac, you'll either have to find a friend with a PC, try updating with the beta DM for Mac, or wait for either the OTA to become available or for the official DM for Mac to become available.

    It is best to not use OTA OS updates! Do it manually, and you will have less to no problems with your load not to mention you have more control when loading through DM or AppLoader
