    Hi Everyone, this may sound like a stupid question it's a little unclear to me.
    I'm planing to buy a Telus Milestone, unlocking it and using it on Fido (another canadian provider)

    My question is this, will I still get OS updates even if my phone is not one the Telus network?
    Who provides the over-the-air-updates, Telus, Moto, Google?
    Is it "like" a Windows Update server where you phone checks a generic server on the internet for updates?
    Or will I have to apply manual updates?

    Thank you for your time.

    Adriano

    The 3G on Rogers is great, I assume Fido will be the same.

    I was getting impatient so I taught I'd ask.

    So you can't use the keyboard to enter letters?

    It sounds like they are giving you instructions for a different type of Motorola phone. There shouldn't be any letters in the unlock code. I've unlocked two Milestones, and on both I just put in my Rogers SIM and it popped up a box saying basically "enter unlock code", I typed it in (all numbers) and hit ok on the screen. That's it.

    I got the codes from ebay, seller's name was "mobilexpresscanada". Under an hour to get the codes both times.
