    Exclamation T-Mobile USA & OS6 for 9700 ready


    T-Mo USA release OS 6.0.0.448 for Bold 9700.

    T-Mo user who needs official software from their operator just connect your phone to Desktop Manager.

    You can use online software update option also: BlackBerry - Software Updates - New Update Software for BlackBerry Smart Phones

    Because my DM is Turkish language I add screen shot from online opdate site:

    blackberry os 6 available for 9700 customers

    Interesting that it is version .448. There are clearly bugs in the version, but I guess T-Mo thought it was "good enough". I've been using it, its pretty solid.

    try online update site or connect to desktop manager but as seen on your sign you're on some software. U can see at "install other firmwares" section it must shown as recommended.

    I don't think it's TMO. I had the option to Beta test if from RIM. I think RIM has said this is the first official OS 6 upgrade for all OS 5 devices.

    As for bugs, the same was an issue with OS 4.5. RIM said this is the official OS 4.5 for all carriers, and that was that even though I felt their were issues with that version.

I tried everything, re-booting, re-starting. battery pull and even calling tmo....nothing helped. Its gone forever. I lost

    Off-course, it's the same, official or leaked, from ANY carrier, will be the exact same if the version numbers are the same. RIM doesn't release a diff OS when releasing an OS to different carriersm

    It's just that when a particular carrier has finished testing with a particular OS, they declare it official, but it is still the same OS.

    That being said, one can safely install any OS from any other carrier.

    At last! For those who want officially released OS versions, this is it!

    Looks like they may have pulled it (not available for me or my cohorts.) It looks like Bell pulled it as weel (as indicated in that thread). Wonder if there's a previously unseen fatal problem...

    This is a mystery to me. I downloaded 6.0.0.448 from DM. According to the BB tech for T-Mobile, this is not an official release. When I asked who has access to the DM program, he thought it might be RIM. I'm just curious. Anybody know who sent this release?

    As of today, I haven't seen any mention of this from TMO, RIM, Blackberry Beta Zone.

    To clarify... you can install an OS from another carrier provided you delete the vendor.xml file first.

    Interesting.... I did .448 Friday evening my time via automatic upgrade in Desktop Manger (and reverted back to version 5 Saturday monring). From your post and what others have posted above, look they yanked it pretty quick, and substituted .461.

    I also went to my t-mobile to do a manual download and install before I used Desktop Manager and didn't see it Friday....could only do it using Desktop Manager.

    Interesting. But remember there was a 5.0 upgrade that was announced and then delayed, and then a few days or a week later t-mobile came out with an even newer 5.0 version. I guess this sort of stuff happens, though I never noticed it with t-mobile until lately.

    I just checked for updates on DM, nothing offered. I'm still running .448, updated about last Thursday evening from 5.0.0.714. Curiouser and curiouser.

    The update showed up when I synced my BB Friday but it's gone now. I finally upgraded to the 6.0 version of the desktop - still doesn't show up. Went to blackberry.com & tried the update - no dice.

    I'm downloading the version on the front page now but it is frustrating that the update seems to not be readily available.

    This update also eats up alot of storage space on the 9700, and It causes memory leaks like crazy. I wish there was a option to install the OS6 on your mini memory card instead of the storage device.

    Talking Loving OS6!

    I was very happy late last week when I went to sync/back-up my BlackBerry and was prompted that I could upgrade to OS6. I said to myself "finally!" T-Mobile released OS6 for the 9700 so now I can start enjoying the same OS that so many others have been using for months now. I have been tempted many, many times to download and install one of the many leaks that are out there but I always errored on the siide of caution thinking that if anything can go wrong it will most likely happen to me. Never the less I updated via DM and 30 minutes later I was enjoying OS6. Now I see that it probably is NOT the T-Mobile "official" release, especially since their web site still shows that OS5.0.0.714 is still the most current official for the 9700 but I don't care. In the few short days since I upgraded my 9700 is much faster, more responsive and just plain better since the upgrade. Aside from the minor memory leak (10-12mb over the course of the day) and the small font on the browser plus no column view I don't miss OS5 at all and would not switch back. I read that some TMO users got prompted for the Telus .461 version and if I do I will certainly update but if I don't I will continue to use .448 as I am very happy and satisfied with it and can live with the few minor "bugs" that are present.

    This is not an official TMO update. Like many I connected my 9700 to desktop manager last week and received a message that an upgrade was available. Thinking it was an official TMO update I installed it. Since it installed directly onto my phone I wanted to have a copy on my computer so I went to the TMO upgrade site Unsupported Browser but they still list 5.0.0.714 as the official 9700 OS. I called tech support and was told they have not released 6 but would support it. I'm assuming that RIM is putting some pressure on the service providers to get the OS out there so they are releasing it and having the providers support it.

    Desktop Manager does not show you an upgrade available unless it is released by your carrier. I know OS 6 was not on the t-mobile site, and apparently Desktop Manager has stopped prompting users to upgrade, and I don't have an explanation for it, but that doesn't change the fact. Just consider all the times that an OS upgrade has been released by other carriers and you have not been prompted by Desktop Manager to upgrade until your carrier releases and upgrade. Whatever happened, at some point in time, for however long it lasted, t-mobile released OS 6 for the 9700. And that's why they will not refuse to support it, I believe.

    Is there anyway you can post an OTA or something of the file of the OS 6 upgrade you added to your computer? I've been looking everywhere for one...as I unfortunately missed the day or so the upgrade was posted. I'm dying to not have the OS 6 upgrade and don't want to download a leaked version.
