UK Playbook 3G OS update ?

I find myself in the irritating position of having a new 3G Playbook, which I am unable to use. I've done a backup from my existing Playbook, and now want to restore my data to the new 3G one - fairly simple stuff.

 

Except I can't, because my current Playbook is running 2.1.0.1088, and the 3G has 2.0.1.688.

 

I have a mass of data on my current Playbook  - multiple VPN configs for different clients, for example - and re-entering all of that is not an option?

 

This is the UK version, not the LTE one sold in Canada and the States - it's bought from RIM via one of two resellers (Misco was the one I used) and is not supplied from a carrier, and therefore there should be no carrier release issues like with the LTE models - the OS updates should be coming direct from RIM.

 

DM says that there are no OS updates for it. How can I get an OS update for the 3G?

 

Until I can get my data on it, the thing's basically just a paperweight :-(
