    Did my usual handset check for updates this morning and there is nothing available; 7.0 is still current according to the OTA updater.

    BUT...when I plugged in to Desktop Manager to sync my calendar it informed me that an update is available;

    7.1 Bundle 921 (v7.1.0.267, Platform 5.1.0.230)

    An update of BlackBerry Device Software version 7.1 is available. This update includes optimizations and enhancements approved by your wireless service provider. Note: If your device is associated with an email account that uses a BlackBerry Enterprise Server, contact your administrator for more information about updating.
    So here we go.............

    Yes I mentioned that (oops I actually said 858 not 585; but yes the website hasn't been updated). Not sure what's going on but I'm downloading something.....

    DM will show a carrier OS update way before it's available from RIM's software download site.

    So Mikey... was the update for 7.1?

    What you see in the first post is what I know so far; it says v7.1 Bundle 921 (v7.1.0.267, Platform 5.1.0.230)

    I had to download an update to Desktop Manager first.

    Didn't T-Mobile and Sask Tel already release?

    Has ANYBODY else checked their DM yet to see if they have this update? I'm on module 118 now; taking forever......

    Leaked version installed relatively quickly, maybe loads of bloatware on the "official" version.

    Could just be my internet connection; I'm on rural wireless and it's not particularly fast.

    TMO released .205 then pulled it, and SK Telecom released .267 then pulled it... so Telus 'could' be the first

    I assumed SK tel was Sask Tel.

    Anyway; Telus is out; I'm installed, everything seems to work. Mobile Hotspot is on-board of course; how do I tell if the wifi calling or UMA is enabled?

    I won't get the DM pop up for this because I already have the leaked OS 7.1 installed on my Telus phone. But it would be nice to see an official update from Telus, which used to be like AT&T when it comes to releasing new OS versions for their BlackBerry users.

    What version of the OS is pushed to your DM? Is it a newer version than the 7.1.0.267? The RIM's Telus Download page has not been updated yet; https://swdownloads.blackberry.com/D...84132DE5.node1

    Thank you for the information.

    It's .267 and RIM's software download site is always the last place to get updated.

    This OS will still show as a 'Recommended' update for you if you use DM.

    Yes, I know that the RIM's website updates on downloads are slow. I am going to change my leaked OS .267 to this one because it would be identical. I wonder if Telus is aware of the few bugs I found.

    It was a typo... It should read I am NOT going to change my OS to the one that being released by Telus right now because they are identical.
