    Blackberry 8800 Flash from T-Mobile?

    Hey guys!

    I recently got a Blackberry 8800 from a friend that is on the T-Mobile network, and i'm trying to flash it over to AT&T. I already have the phone unlocked, and so far having major trouble trying to find out how to go about doing this through standard searching.

    (unable to search the forums, as I keep getting a "403 Forbidden" error for some reason)

    Is it possible to flash the firmware on this phone from one network to the other? And how would I go about doing it?

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    You don't need to flash it. Once the phone is unlocked, and it will need to be unlocked for it to work, just put your SIM in, and turn it on. You will need a BlackBerry specific data plan on your account in order to get the service books. Once those are on the phone, you are set. You will not be able to change the boot up screen from the T-Mobile stuff that is on there. It is hard coded in, and removing it is not an option. You will then see all of the AT&T stuff on the phone. No need to worry about firmware, as the service books control the device, meaning the T-Mobile stuff will be gone, and the AT&T stuff will be there.
