BBBridge for 8830 World Edition

I see BBB doesn't work on 8830.  

Is there any chance 8830 will be supported in the future?  

I got the PB expecting it to work with 8830 (without checking, toooo many things to check like Skype, darn....).  

Seems wasteful & environmentally incorrect to be tossing a smartphone because of that.  


Might make more sense to return PB & use tether.com with Mac.  Opinions?  Thanks

Re: BBBridge for 8830 World Edition

Unless you can update your 8830 to OS5.0, there is no chance of using Bridge and I have never seen OS5 for the 8830. Sorry.
