    Hello everyone.

    I am about to buy an Unlocked Blackberry to use it with my carrier since they still do not sell it.

    But after looking at some forums it seems that Software update is Carrier specific (kinda like the old Blackberry) and not software specific (Like the iphone).

    That means that I will not be able to update my phone if my carrier doesn't push it? Or I will need like the old BB to find a leak, delete vendor.xml and update it?

    Thanks

    To load software manually all you need is the correct loader file compatible with your device, and access to a Windows PC to push the software into the phone.

    And these files are easy to reach?

    You can just buy a cheap prepaid (sometimes even free) sim card from another carrier to pop in for their updates.
