    Since most of us are on a BYOD contract with a carrier, are we bound by when they release the BKB updates? My DTEK found the first update by wifi before I even put a SIM in.

    Last night I finally got AAG124. It's almost September.

    I am wondering if the key is to turn off the radio, take out the SIM, reboot, and get the update from BKB. Will that work? I don't want to be bound to AT&T schedules; or any carrier for that matter.

    The SIM tray on the DTEK is just so fragile though.

    Factory unlocked phones from BlackBerry will always get updates from BlackBerry when BlackBerry releases them. No matter what network they are used on.

    Even if you're on AT&T, you will not be bound to AT&T's schedule. That only happens if you bought the phone from AT&T which would be branded to AT&T and locked to their network.

    If you're thinking of the AT&T Priv dump fiasco, this is not the same situation. Those were AT&T branded Privs that were network unlocked, and sold to the rest of the world, but because they were branded to AT&T, they still had the firmware locks that required an AT&T sim to get any update - and only the updates AT&T would finally release. There was, and still is, no way around that as of this post.

    But, again, you're fine since the Dtek50 isn't even sold by AT&T anyway.
