Possible to use different carrier's firmware?

I purchased my Blackberry 9000 (Bold) on my business trip to Europe from the Three Telecom store.  I was wondering if it would be possible to update its firmware using AT&T firmware listed below.

 

Firmware:

Name: BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.6.0.298 (Multilanguage) File Name: 9000M_PBr4.6.0_rel298_PL4.0.0.157_A4.6.0.167_AT&T.exe Download Size: 93.316 Mb Language: English Published Date: 10/22/2008  

 

Excerpt from my About screen:

BlackBerry 9000

v4.6.0.126 (Platform 4.0.0.135)

Branding Version: 1.0.116.109

Micro Edition Config: CLDC-1.1

Micro Edition Profile: MIDP-2.0

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi and welcome to the forums...

 

Yes, you can reload your 9000 Bold with the 167 At&t. Also, TIM Italy has .185 available which has better memory control and faster browser as well. You can read about this new version here...
