Bold upgrade not ready for prime time
told you that AT&T would be dropping an upgrade for the BlackBerry Bold
that added Visual Voicemail support with this upgrade. It seems, however,
despite all of the AT&T testing the upgrade isn’t ready for prime time just
a surprise move, AT&T has pulled the upgrade as fast as it was released.
According to our sources, it is just a “temporary suspension” of the upgrade
being available due to what is being called a “software issue affecting the
interaction between the device and the network enhancements being deployed.”
a customer has already downloaded the upgrade, but has not yet installed it,
AT&T is advising that these customers wait until a revised version of the
upgrade is made available. For those that have already installed it, these
customers can continue to use it. Those customers that want the Visual
Voicemail support will have to wait until a revised version becomes available.
sources still don’t have all of the details on what the issue is or how users
that already have it installed might be affected. We do suspect, however, that
AT&T will move quickly to resolve the problems; but no one seems to have
any idea when a revised version will become available.
