Re: 4G LTE no longer being sold by BELL and software not approved beyond 2.0.1.668

Did you call bell? After reading this I called technical support a the guy told me that even though they do not sell the playbook anymore the will still release updates, whether he was being honest with me is the question told him about updates being released on Rogers and he said they have to be tailored to specific providers and he is sure a update will be coming. Only time will tell.

Promised by Blackberry that an upgrade would be released by Bell no later than MID March. Surprise, no updates, no support as the 90 day has now expired and stuck with a playbook that has never had a single update approved. Blackberry is useless, and there carrier approval process is pathetic.

Now that is interesting and the first time someone with unlocked PB reported they got an update.

Have you a playbook contract with Rogers. Did Blackberry, Bell or Rogers unlock it?

I bought it from TBooth with a bell contract. When I coudn't get updates I went back there and he sugested to unlock it and get a rogers sim. once I got the rogers sim the updates came.

That means presumably the process is that your Playbook tells Blackberry "I have a Rogers SIM in here" then you get an update.

 

Bad news for anyone over in UK buying an unlocked PB from Misco and putting in an O2 or 3 SIM as tbey are unlikely to be in the group of approving providers - unless someone in UK knows better?
