Blackberry OS Problem
Here is my issue. My Blackberry has always served me well, its a great phone. But now I just recently updated the OS to V4.5 (Research in Motion v4.5). I am now unable to access the internet. My service books hav been deleated completely. I have a vodacom contract and have dialed *111# gona through the process and when I get to automatically choose phone model. It says "Vodacom doesnt support Research in motion Blackberry Curve 8310". I have tried selecting Blackberry 8310 manualy but it just says Unable to Send.
I have tried resetting it to factory defalt I have tried wipeing it. And i also used that JL_cmdr but I can only find v4.5 online. I used it and installed the Vodacom v4.5 but it still says i have the RIM version.
Does anyone have any idea how I can restore my old OS or fix this problem in any way? I have gone into vodacom and they said they are not allowed to handle Blackberrys and must send it to Blackberry themselves, which could take 10-14 days, and as im sure you all know in SA that means about 3-4 months. I can't live without my phone for that long.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Blackberry OS Problem
Those of you still wondering and looking into this error (even though you should all be using OS7 phones already) will be pleased to know that I worked on a similar issue back in 2010. This was a problem on Vodacom's part and restoring the OS to a previous version that supported the correct service books worked like a treat. OS5 users also had this issue at one point and RIM South Africa eventually fixed it for good.
Now its just BIS that goes tits-up every now and then.
