Questions about a curve 8330
Let me first start by saying that I am currently running 2 9530 Storm devices and these handsets happen to be the first BBís Iíve ever owned. Having said thatÖ..Iím eating at the local diner(WH) in the early morning hours like I do most mornings before going to work. One of the locals(employee) has a new BB 8330. Sheís very excited about it and notices that I have my Storm. She starts asking me about different functions and Iím filling in the blanks for her. Not to mention I suggest that she visit BlackberryOS.com for more enlightening conversation about BBís. NeverthelessÖSheís addicted to her BB and she askís me about how to modify the ringtone for SMS and MMS incoming alerts. Now me being a Storm owner it was very easy to say do thisÖÖÖand as Iím suggesting to her, she says I donít have that selection. The selection we have on the Storm is Message Alerts. From here I can customize and message alert I like. She hands me her curve and as I expect, navigating through this device is similar to the Storm. I could not find any functions that would allow me to modify the alerts.
Another thing I immediately looked at was the OS. It read v188.8.131.52 and she is with VZW. Kind of looks old to me. Sheís only had this for 1 week
Last but not least. Iím confident in my capabilities of upgrading OSís. I have both 4.7 and 5.0 beta installed on different PCís that I have. As others do, I use the Loader.exe rather than DM to install OSís. Can I use the DMís that I currently use to backup a curve handset? If not, any information would be greatly appreciated.
Which OS would be the most stable?
The device is an 8330 Pink Curve from VZW. I've kind of been looking at the OS threads for the curve here on BBOS and it looks like there are several variations to choose from. Maybe I can get an explanation about the mutilanguage.
