    Windows is THE way to upgrade your BlackBerry from a downloaded OS. There is no software for Macs to do this and there probably never will be given their falling sales of late. Look in the Mac users forum where this sublect has been covered many times.

    Yes, if your carrier releases a new OS then you can do an Over The Air (OTA) OS upgrade. To do this, go to Options, Advanced Options, Wireless Upgrade and follow the prompts.

    This will only work for official, released OSs and you will never get a beta release this way.

    If you want a beta release on your phone then you will just have to use a PC of some sort and install the OS and Desktop Manager on it. I'd reccomend you et CrackMem from my signature too. If you do this, then you can join the happy world of beta OS users.

    Default Update to Forum!

    Er, your information may (or may not) have been correct back in '09, but Apple Mac products sales are stable, Apple is the most valuable company in the world... Anyway, as a Mac-user, I can tell you forum-readers that it is now possible to update your BlackBerry via your Mac. Just download the BlackBerry Desktop Software for Mac from BlackBerry's website or just click here. Guess Mac sales were good "as of late".

    "There probably never will be", those with their eyes stuck on Windows... Shall I mention Vista?.. Also, just to clarify: I'm an iPhone user, my sister has a BlackBerry. And also, didn't mean to 'troll', my bad, just slipped out.
