    For those who bought the non-locked Classic directly from BlackBerry or Amazon, do you just update the OS with whatever carrier your sim card belongs to?

    Reason is that I recently traveled to canada and swapped my ATT sim card with the Roger sim card for cellular access. The phone ended up receiving an OS update from Rogers.

    Yeah you can do that or not put any SIM card in your phone, and it should see the update BB put out for factory unlocked phones.

    So if I remove my Rogers sim from my unlocked classic I should receive the 10.3.1 update Rogers hasn't released yet?

    Theoretically yes, that's how it's supposed to work for factory unlocked phones. If BB has released something for the Classic but Rogers hasn't, then without the Rogers SIM, a factory unlocked Classic should see the BB update.

    But if your Classic is a Rogers branded phone that was unlocked, it's still considered a Rogers Classic.

    I got it from Shop BlackBerry so I'm good.

    Thanks!

    Friend with a Passport said he just needed to turn off mobile data, and he got the 10.3.1 update. His is from ShopBB.
