    i heard that you have to update your IMEI with T-Mobile to get the Bug Fix Update. but i went to the tmobile store and they said they needed my old phone for some reason but i already sold it. then i called tmobile and they had no idea what i was talking about so what number am i supposed to call and what do i tell them specifically?

    For the UK (at least) you can choose the phone from My-Tmobile, and also get settings sent to your phone - mms etc. It automatically can see you're IMEI (that you're sim is registered with right now).

    For the US i dont know, but you can just say you got a behold 2 and I think you still have my old phone/serial number on my account.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but what is the point of updating the IMEI? If I bought this phone on e-bay, do I have to get it updated?

    Thanks

    TMO sends out updates based on IMEI numbers. So if they are unaware that you have a Behold 2, they can't update it. Otherwise it makes no difference.

    So I'm guessing it is enough that it shows a behold 2 on my-tmobile? :) Just checking.

    No, they had plugged a dummy number into my account. But then again, I still have not received the update.
