Hi,

If one is using an unlocked Veer, activated in the USA with pay-as-you-go AT&T SIM card but the unit is not on an AT&T contract, can one receive OS updates and purchase apps over WiFi? I'm guessing "no" for OS updates as these are carrier based and "yes" for apps.

Thanks.

You should be able to do both. If you can't do updates, just doctor to the new version.

Thanks for the reply. I sort of understand that "doctor" means run the program called webOS doctor which is like a really hard reset which then puts the latest OS stuff on the phone.

Thanks for the advice.

-- now that I've just ordered the Veer, that's just what I'll do. Thanks. BTW, I'm still staying with Centro/Sprint. The Veer for me will be a travel phone (when I unlock it) and a 2.6 inch TouchPad.
