    Hey

    I have a Blackberry Pearl 8110 and have a quick question about the new OS that is being rolled out. I'm with T-Mobile UK.

    Does the OS automatically update on my phone or do I have to install it from somewhere? If I have to install it - could someone please direct me!?!

    Thanks for your help!

    No it doesn't update on your phone automatically.
    You have to download to your PC.
    Use the search function on this site on step by step directions to installing OS.

    T mobile uk should have a blackberry software downloads page from where you can download the 4.5 OS when they release it.

    If you want to use the OS from another carrier/network you need to delete the vendor.xml file from the download first before upgrading.
