    I tired this last night but once I installed on my computer and tried to put on my phone it said that no updates were needed for my phone. I still can't receive text like I did on the first day I had my phone. I dont understand but of course this is my first BB so maybe I just dont know what I'm doing either...

    Is this the newest os for these phones? It looks like my phone already has the 4.6.1.83 os installed. However I am not sure abou the package version or software platform. Where can I find that info on my phone?

    Yeah, what's new with this version? My version is also 4.6.1.83. I'd try it, but I'd hate to go through all the trouble for naught.

    I just got an email from my gov't rep who got a bulletin today stating that a fix from RIM is about 2-3 weeks out. I'll keep you posted.

    Why would you need to delete the vendor.xml file for a phone that is only available on one carrier?

    Ok, let me explain this for you all, only the Applications version matters. Usually the package version will be a higher number than the Application version. But again, only the Application version is the one that counts.
    If you look at the other device specific forums, the "latest"/"newest" OS is always posted at the top of the forum. When something new comes out, it will be updated, but until then it's the newest.

    From the 'Home' screen..

    Menu Button > Select 'Options' > Select 'About'

    I see BlackBerry 8350i smartphone (iDEN, Wi-Fi) v4.6.1.83 (Platform 3.0.0.41)

    which is what my phone came with out of the box...this number matches your 'application' number/version so I assume it is the same..

    You know I dont think that i will ever try a update that is dated the same date i received my phone i installed this up date an to no prevail nothing still works on my curve. now i was told by tech support that this update hurt my phone because now i cant hear from the headset speaker and my phone started tunring off by itself. i'm not saying it's a bad update but since i got my phone the same time it came out i didnt need it. i know it worked for some people and i am glad but i guess i'll think twice about it. also just to fyi everyone there is a patch coming out this month that is certain but the date is unconfirmed .

    Guys... This is a placeholder that will always have the latest known OS for the 8350i. Right now the latest available is what everyone already has on their BB. If you try to install it it will say that there's no update needed, unless for some reason you had an older version on the phone.

    I think this update was meant for the beta version of the phone, not the retail versions that we have.

    I had an advocate version of the phone, so mine needed it. Didn't have any trouble installing, but only visible stuff at this point is the removal of Bug Report and update to DocsToGo. But that's just me :-)

    The version v4.6.1.83 is actually a demo version of the one located above. I asked the same question to a Blackberry Tech Guy this morning. The version above is actually the full out version.

    got it Monday from Sprint/Nextel, got it up and running, and then it quit. I ended up doing a "master reset" since its on the Nextel network. Hope you got yours up and running. Still am tweaking it so it stays sync'd with my other BB which is the 8330.

    Master reset cleans everything off the phone right? i can sink it again to get my contacts back and i havent had it long enough to really load anything interesting on it.

    I have returned 2 phones in less then 30 days with spontanous resets and finding the phone dead on the counter. I refuse to buy another one till there is an OS update so let me know if this new release solves the problems.
    issues I had are dead device on the counter, in web browser it will say not in an WIFI area, mms texting issues and time to time 12 emails at a time come it its not staying connected to the network.

    Sprint has a temporary fix for the mms problem, or so they say. I called today about a differant issue and asked when the fix will available. the Service rep told me " he had a temp. and walked me through it. It seems to be working fine, we'll see for how long, call Nextel Customer Care.
