    Look in my signature at the proper upgrade/downgrade procedure link. Follow that guide and you should be good. You can use the T-mobile version, but be sure to delete your vendor file, or it will not work. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask .

    you have to delete the vendor file so it will load to the phone. the benefits are a video recorder and html emails. Its not too hard just take your time and follow the instructions in the proper upgrade and downgrade and you should be fine

    The OS that T-Mobile currently supports is v4.2.2.180, that will not accomplish much because it is the same as the one shipped with your device.

    You are looking for the upgraded to v4.5xx, that will support the advanced features like Video, Voice notes, HTML email and many general improvements.

    The good news is, we expect T-Mobile to release their approved OS upgrade soon now. When it is released, you will be able to use the BlackBerry web site Upgrade service.

    BlackBerry - BlackBerry Device Software

    If you are in a rush, you can download and install v4.5xx from an alternate carrier, but it will require you to do the upgrade manually.

    Actually, T-mobile released 4.5.0.81 for the 8320 yesterday. It has not been released for any other T-mobile devices as of yet, but this user has the 8320, so he can upgrade through their software.
