    Hi,
    I have few questions. I have BB Curve 8900, with os 4.6.1.199.
    I payed attentions that in the bold 9700 there is the same theme name (the defult) but its still different from the 8900, in the icons, the menu colors and few more things. I also payed attention that in the bold i dont need a third part app to make the phone vibrate and ring at the same time.
    In addition, i watched some videos on youtube of 8900 with OS 5 (like the 9700) and its still different from the bold in the menu colors, the icons and all that things.

    How can i get a curve 8900 works and looks like the 9700?
    Is the vibrate&ring things will be solved aith the next 8900 os update?
    Is original 9700 theme will work perfect on 8900? if yes where can i get an original one?

    thanks!

    Hello,

    a) I am unsure what you mean with 'works and looks like'. There are features present in the Bold 9700 that you can not with any software get to function on the Curve 8900. If you're into the visuals, it sounds like your Curve 8900 still has OS 4.6, whereas the pictures you've seen with the Bold 9700 there was OS 5.0 magic in the works.

    b) Vibrate with ring is a feature of OS 5.0. You will need to upgrade your Curve 8900 firmware, that is correct.

    c) OS 5.0 theme is the same for all devices, once you upgrade your Curve 8900, you'll achieve the 'same look' like the Bold 9700.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the comment.
    the first thing, like i said, i watched videos of 8900 on you tube with OS 5.0 and the icons (for example the sms) are still different, and the menu looks different (im talking about this blue indicator, its not the same. you know what i mean?)

    the second thing, when im looking for os updates in the BlackBerry - Update your Device Software for 8900 it says that i have the latest os. i guess its the latest official one. if so when will os 5.0 for 8900 will be availble?

    Could be that you have watched YouTube videos of older OS 5.0 releases or with custom configurations. Anyway, OS 5.0 is already available for the Curve 8900. Who's your carrier?
