    i have a playbook 3G, im stuck on os 2.0 and no way to update, i have tried through the device but i get no updates.
    i playbook is not locked to any carrier and was not purchased from a carrier.
    even blackberry link states version is too old to connect
    is there any way i could upgrade to 2.1?

    Try a hard reset, then try again or if you have the desktop manager , you can download with that.

    I have tried both methods and both didn't work. Anyone with a PlayBook 3g have a newer version?

    however see thisSoftware update v2.1.0.1526Feb. 13, 2013
    Includes the following updates for the W-Fi only PlayBook and the 3G+ PlayBook:

    Improvements to Gmail and Yahoo! account setup services
    Enhancements to browser performance
    Audio Boost update to comply with European Standard 'EN 60950-1/A12'
    Renaming of BlackBerry App World storefront to BlackBerry World storefront
    Updates for the 3G+ PlayBook are subject to carrier availability.

    I recall seeing a post here a while back about this.

    What the guy said was to put in a Rogers SIM card, and the 2.1.0.1088 update will be offered to you. You don't need to be in Canada to do this. Guy was in Switzerland IIRC, and he said you don't need to activate the SIM, it simply has to be inside the PB.

    AFAIK Getting a more recent OS (e.g. the .1526 recently available to the WiFi PB) isn't possible due to the need for OS updates to be carrier approved which hasn't been done yet. 1088 took an extra couple of months I think as a guide.
