    To keep the answer simple: no, you can't. The OS is different from model to model.

    No OS 6 phone can run OS 7. There are major hardware differences which currently makes this impossible. There are hybrid builds which use some of the codes of OS 7, but they will not give you a true OS 7 experience.

    There is no backward compatibility between OS 6 and OS 7 phones.

    No! If you want an OS7 phone get one cause there is no way any OS6 phone can run OS7 software

    I for one wish RIM would not then in the Desktop Manager present the upgrade option as I think that muddies the water. I had an awful time with my Curve (OS5) and saw the upgrade to 6 option. I was presented the option to go to 7 when I was syncing my 9810 this weekend and waited until I had time to see if yes I could.

    Question: Is your DeskTop Software up to date for latest version? OS's are matched for upgrades in the latest DeskTop software version and this issue is nonexistent....

    Umm, the last time I looked the 9810 shipped with OS7, so you're seeing a notice of an upgrade to the newest version. So there is nothing wrong with what is showing in your DM.

    The OP wanted to know about putting OS7 on the OS6 based 9800.

    The Javelin is an 8900, not a 9800. Do you have a Javelin Curve, or a Torch?

    Installing OS7 on OS6 devices is just like trying to load ANDROID OS on a NOKIA device

    Someone mentioned a hybrid solution. What does that detail? Is it worth trying out?

    Long story short, the 9800 is a slug and a POS therefore OS7 simply can't be activated. I can't wait to throw my 9800 in the river.
