BlackBerry says it is working on a way for software updates to reach the unlocked AT&T Priv99+
According to a new post on the BlackBerry Knowledge Base, the company is currently working on a way to bring those with the device the latest software updates even if there isn't an active AT&T SIM card inserted in the phone. As it is an unlocked GSM handset, a T-Mobile SIM card will run the device in the U.S.
The unlocked version of the AT&T branded Priv has been the subject of some fabulous deals including one from back in April that offered the phone for only $450. The regular price of the device is $649, which includes a $50 permanent discount that also took place in April. Assuming that many T-Mobile customers took advantage of the lower price, the good news is that their updates could soon be freed from limbo.
