    And for those who don't know 4.6.0.126 is the latest OS for the Bold. I knew this but just see Mobiman's Sig.

    Thanks for the info J_MC.

    Please forgive a rather basic question though, but do OS upgrades come directly from RIM, or via the airtime provider?

    My reason for asking is that I am hoping to buy a SIM free unlocked Bold just as soon as they become available here in the UK, and to use my existing O2 3G SIM card (plus the appropriate Blackberry 'Bolt-On' to my tariff).

    If at that time O2 have not officially released the Bold (which they will do eventually, once the iPhone sales start to drop off a bit!) will I only be able to upgrade the OS via O2 or, once having registered the phone, will I then be able to download it directly from a RIM server?

    Hope this makes sense!

    No, you will have to get this OS from your carrier.

    Thanks... that was what I was afraid of!

    I was sort of hoping there would be a 'generic' version available, but it looks then as if I will have to wait until my intended carrier actually launches the Bold in the UK before they will have an updated version of the OS available.

    What I had (obviously mistakenly) assumed was that once I had registered it I would then immediately have access to the latest available OS. (Like you now have with Nokia phones)

    An interesting list mousey, which I noticed included Vodafone UK (although obviously nothing for the Bold yet) but there was no mention of O2 (UK) at all.

    This rather surprised me, as they do offer many BlackBerry models... does anyone know the reason for this?

    It's cos they host it on their own site

    BlackBerry from O2 - Help and support

    Thanks... that what I thought, but funnily enough the list did include a link to T-Mobile's own website... so why not O2 also I wonder!

    Never mind though... I am sure it will be ages before they (O2) include one for the Bold anyway!

    What is the latest release for the Bold. I am having lots of little issues, such as 3g battery usage, resets..etc.
    noticed that the following was posted:
    "This is a pretty old beta. The latest OS for the Bold is 4.6.0.111 "
    But isn't the v4.6.0.199 later since it is a higher number?
    Thanks.

    The latest build for the Bold is .126 although I seriously doubt you can get your hands on it unless you have access to BU's Partner Portal.

    Edit: The latest build is .128 as of 8-19

    Don't need to wait for Orange to release, install the OS, remove vendor.xml and then any BlackBerry OS will install.

    Thanks, but it looked to me as if you had to have a T-Mobile account to log into their site in order to download the new OS... or is there a way around this?

    Edit: Sorry... just found the answer in the other thread... here is a direct link in the first post on that page!
