    Hello,

    I recently purchased an unlocked Bold and wanted to update the OS. I have a Mac, so have to wait until I get access to Windows, but I was wondering what OS to download since the phone is originally AT&T and Tmobile is servicing it. Also, I am moving overseas, and will be using a different service provider. Any help would be appreciated.

    I have an unlocked bold and upgraded yesterday to .266, I dont think it's an official upgrade from my carrier but works great. Allot of people are saying good things about .282 so you could pick which one you want. Now for going over seas I guess you could see who you provider there will be and maybe see what update they offer but im sure you could still run anyone you want.

    No official for T-Mo. I like 247, but I hear 266 is good also.

    Nope, it's pretty old. Again, 247 or 266.

    No. Only a rebrand could lock it.

    .266 > .282

    .282 got kind of annoying with the slow loading pics. And the battery seemed to drain faster. I just debranded my phone to be able to toggle between 2g and 3g.

    Go for 282. I have an unlocked bold on tmobile and every other os I was on my bold would be dying by the early evening. But 282 has a toggle to turn off 3g, which u can't use o tmobile anyways... Now I can go almost 2 days without a charge because it isn't constantly looking for that 3g service it will never have
