    Hi all,

    I picked up an 8707G on ebay a few days ago and am loving it. This is my first blackberry device ever.

    One small problem I have is that my carrier's functionality is crippled and I was wondering is it possible to re flash the phone with a different carriers firmware?

    The phone is not locked to a network, I am using it on a different network that it was originally provided to, however the browser and Live Messenger/AIM functionality is deleted.

    Can anyone shed some light on this?

    You can use any other carriers OS for the 8707G, but you will need to find and delete the Vendor.xml file after installing the OS on your PC. It will not load on your BB until you delete that file.
