    Error 507 means there is no OS installed on the device. Not sure where you will be able to get it for the 6230.

    Could you explain that a little clearer. What is "the 4.0?"

    Sorry but that didn't answer my question. 4.0 of what? Desktop Manager or the Operating System? 4.0 is just a version number. So saying "I downloaded the 4.0" doesn't tell me what you downloaded.

    You can get it from the carrier. I don't know much about older models though so I am not sure if you'll find it.
