Re: blackberry update to 7.1

You don't need to change SIM cards to do it.

 

See the link below for the download, and follow these simple installation instructions.

First locate tmobile and the OS file you wish to use.
http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support/downloads/download_sites.jsp

Do a backup of your device first, using Desktop Manager > Backup. Close Desktop Manager upon completion.

1. Download the OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the file you downloaded.
2. Go to c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader and delete the file named "vendor.xml."
3. Plug in BB and double click on "Loader.exe." It's located in the same place as the above vendor.xml file.

Re: blackberry update to 7.1

Since I have updated my Z10 recently it does not work properly. If I have a telephone call the touch screen is afterwards not working anymore. The same applies if I use Skype. I have then to switch the mobile off and to restart it. Even the restart option dies not work anymore.

Re: blackberry update to 7.1

I must admit that I have never looked for a possibility to complain about my BlackBerry. Since I have the Z10 I have continously to complain. Why by the hell can't you provide users with a working tool which works.

Mr. Angry, you're posting in the BlackBerry Bold section about Z10 issues.

I've responded to your other post here:  Z10 Touch Screen

 

Please don't double post and cross post in the forums. Once is enough.
