    Does upgrading to Rogers .282 void the AT&T warranty?

    It better not.

    If they want to get technical about it, maybe.

    I've sent back 2 phones with a unofficial OS and didn't hear back from them.

    Not only does it void your warranty, but if you download it, AT&T will call the FBI, and they'll come to your house and beat you mercilessly for hours... lol.

    j/k... its all good to upgrade...the only thing that will void your warranty is opening your phone up and changing your own trackball and/or keypad.

    Also, can they transfer everything if I warranty it? or will I have to re upload .282 and all my apps?

    You have to do the backup and restore, and they certainly will not load another OS for you.

    borrowing a friend or family members PC is the least expensive alternative.

    otherwise install Bootcamp on your Mac

    This only applies to beta OS's and not official releases. However, if you choose to believe the above statements, you can roll back the OS prior to sending the unit in for repairs.

    Uprgrading ANY platform that ISN'T SUPPORTED BY AT&T (one that is currently on their site) VOIDS the warranty for the Bold. Call if you don't believe me!
    This is 100% correct. I'm shocked many here believe that unofficial AT&T OS doesn't void your warranty. If at anytime you need a warranty repair ALWAYS go back to .167

    When do you suppose that AT&T will release a higher level OS?

    I think I heard they were planning on releasing 5.0 sometime in the fall. I'm not waiting for them though, I updated to 5.0.0.100 today.

    jgeffect: If you do indeed upgrade to an "unapproved" AT&T OS you will void your warranty. Call if you don't believe me.
    Any AT&T store also will tell you I'm right.
    Besides, I had 282 and it lowered my memory. I got 4 megs back going to 266. I'm staying there til another approved release comes out. The sound on 282 stunk.
    Wow what a way to increase the post count! LOL in anycase if you"re worried you can always downgrade. They just wipe your phone when they get it anyway

    Like they really say "lemme see what OS this guy is running", they don't have time for that and they'll just wipe it anyway! Or you can just send it back with a tinfoil hat on it and they'll never know what you did.
