How to upgrade to OS 7.1 for the Curve 9360?
I have the Blackberry Curve 9360 from Virgin Mobile Canada. I want to update the OS from 7.0 to version 7.1 .
I went to the Blackberry site to download the official Virgin Mobile Canada version of the OS 7.1 :
BlackBerry - BlackBerry Desktop and Device Software Download Sites
I entered my name and other mandatory information, then downloaded the official Virgin Canada OS 7.1 with the file name :
I installed it. No problem.
Then I started the Blackberry Desktop Software, went to Device --> Update .
I selected the recommended "7.1 Bundle 722".
It came back with this error message all the time :
"This BlackBerry® Device Software upgrade includes new features and significant enhancements to the BlackBerry® solution and, as such, is only available to users with an active BlackBerry subscription. To learn more about BlackBerry® service, please visit www.blackberry.com/service."
It's frustrating. Did I miss a step? How do I know I have an active subscription to Blackberry? Is there any setup or registration I have to do on the phone itself?
HOW DO I UPDATE THE CURVE 9360 OS TO 7.1 ???!! Help please.

The easiest solution would be to call your carrier and check with them, and subscribe to BlackBerry internet service (BIS). The update should go through. Or, for some reason you have no wish to subscribe to BIS, there are other ways to go about updating the phone. To me the main thing that I like about BBs is BIS.

I have the BB Curve 9360 on Tmobile. 7.0 Bundle 1693 v188.8.131.529. I constantly see other carriers updating to 7.1 but not Tmobile. I also see from post and reviews on crackberry that other carriers have also enabled NFC for the 9360 but not tmobile. Mine has the contacts on the rear battery door, but has no option to enable it in Manage Options.
The help menu on my 9360 shows how to toggle it on/off but there is no place ( setting ) to activate it.
It feels like I am not getting the full use and capabilities from my smartphone.

If you can fill the unforgiving minute, with sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth & everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

Install another carrier's Os and be done with, let me guess the warranty will be void.
Yeah well my country is 3rd world, NFC capabilities will never be realized anytime soon (prozac anyone, No, ok) but its enabled.....yes hilarious I know.
