Josie, Greetings, and welcome to the BlackBerry.com Support Forums.
Look at Options > About, third line down beginning with a "v.4.xxx"
What is yours?

I didn't know I could watch videos from youtube. I always had to download and convert them. Mine says, "The protocol specified is not supported by the handheld. Please try a different URL"
Was I support to download something?
v220.127.116.11 (platform 18.104.22.168)

Well, I did the application loader from this site last week when I upgraded my desktop software to 4.7, so I did the phone software too. But it still stays at v4.2, there's no improvement. Does it matter which carrier you have, or am I doing something wrong? Everything seems to work ok when I do the Active control thing with IE.
ETA: OK.. called t-mobile, the guy was cool and told me I had to go to Pinshack to find the 4.5 for pearl cause they don't have the upgrade. I deleted the vendor.xml file, but I'm not sure which 4.5 version I'm suppose to download from that list http://www.blackberryfaq.com/index.php/BlackBerry_
So, I picked the Alltel one, but that's probably the wrong one. The T-mobile guys said before he got his curve, he had to go to some Indonesia site to upgrade his pearl. And he can't tell me what to do or he'll get in trouble with t-mobile, so he just hinted at Pinshack. I see I'm not the only one trying to figure out this workaround for the pearl.

I have the 8100 pearl on my profile. Ok.. I tried both ways. If I try to use the application loader in the desktop manager, the port goes haywire when the installation gets to "connecting to ROM"
When I tried to do it the loader.exe /nojvm in the command prompt.. It goes haywire with it tries to connect to the port "connecting to ARM"
So either way, I feel like I'm screwed.
I'm not sure what to do at this point.. Trying to time it right with the removal of the battery and playing aroung with it, to see if it will go through. As far as I can tell, once it tries to connect to the BOOT or BIOS, it's doesn't act right. And my phone just keeps rebooting.
I don't think I have a weak port. I tried all four of mine on my laptop, and they all work just fine.

Sorry, I was asking Josie, who started this thread looking for help with her issue.
