Hi All,

I recently got a Vodafone (Ireland) BB 9520 Storm2 from my brother as he smashed the screen and got a new one from his company. I had the screen replaced and unlocked through a contact I know who unlocks phones.

I also formatted the device in order to get rid of all emails / contacts / SMS msgs etc. In doing so I reverted it to pretty much factory settings. A lot of the pre-installed applications went with the delete

I am currently on an Orange (UK) tariff in England as that is where I am currently living. Orange do not offer this phone and so do not have updates available on their website. My question is: Is there anyway to get the latest version of the OS / apps etc while using an unlocked device on a different network?

And before people suggest, I can't change networks - company phone!!

Many thanks,
Snake Doc

NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes

Also, you may want to try posing this question elsewhere, like Howardforums.com, where there is a lot more cell phone expertise.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
