Which OS do I have to install?

I have BB 9930 from Verizon but I'm using T mobile now. Because it's unlocked. 

 

But I wanna reload my OS on my 9930, which OS do I have to choose?

 

 

9930 from Verizon or T mobile, Actually T mobile does't exist 9930. it's 9900. 

 

Do you have an idea guys?

For the 9930, you can ONLY install a 9930 OS.

 

If you attempt a 9900 OS, it will not even be recognized by the loader.exe to install...

 

9930 = 9930

 

And, as I've told you before, you're going to have a VERY difficult time getting data (via your mobile network, email, browser, BBM, etc.) to work on that device on Tmobile. Probably not at all.

Re: Which OS do I have to install?

As I explained in your other thread, IF you get it working, you will only get EDGE data rates.

But I don't think you will get data from Tmobile on that device. I've done it on a 9530 and 9550 Storm, and the 9630 Bold. But never on the 9930.
