BlackBerry Curve 9350/9370 lands official OS 7.0.0.261 from Sprint

You could load onto your Gsm Curve but it wouldn't work properly. Because it was optimized for a sprint blackberry

I don't understand. Sprint is typically very slow to release official OS updates. Why are they releasing one for an officially unreleased phone?

I think they should be putting more effort into getting their new phones released. Look how delayed they were with their new BBs. I can't believe I'm still waiting for their non camera 9930!

Some folks will never be satisfied. You lead the pack!

I hope you realize that T-Mo and At&t customers are still waiting for the GSM 9900 to be released and you're complaining about Sprint's lack of a non-camera version? SMH

Thanks for that insightful attack on me instead of actually understanding my comment about Sprint's premature OS release.

Their 9930 non camera was initially scheduled for an Aug 21 release.

BTW, are you implying that I'm leading you?

The premature release of OS's is not a first. Just because the average user doesn't have the phone doesn't mean the phone doesn't exist. In fact you should be happy that they're releasing the OS update so that the actual version that is released to the masses is not as glitchy. And you consider waiting for the non-camera version something to lose sleep about? T-Mobile was the first mobile carrier to announce that they will carry the 9900 and is going to be the 2nd to last major provider to have it and you're getting mad over something that can be easily solved. Buy the camera version and don't use the camera. If your company doesn't allow cameras, put gorilla tape over the camera.
