    Currently I'm migrating to a new carrier - and will use the BlackBerry Classic for work. This I'm excited to try.

    My PassPort - still my love - is not connected to a data plan (any longer) and my carrier is not available where I physically reside.

    Q? Is it possible to update the Software on my PassPort without both a connection to my carrier and a data plan?

    Software updates are available over WiFi so yes you can get an update without a plan. I'm not sure if you leave a sim inserted if it will be same result how it's deactivated but just remove the sim to be sure and continue life as per normal on WiFi.

    Thank you for the link.

    I'll be honest. I read the ten pages. Struggled to understand how to update the OS.

    I started downloading the bar files - but managed to down load the m5730... file. The remaining two files did not download. Maybe I need to be a bit more patience?

    Anyhow I love my PassPort (and BlackBerry) - but maybe I'm finding this a bit too tedious for my busy schedule. I'm alright with my vintage OS software!

    I'll await my Classic (and it's up to date OS) - and put my PassPort to sleep for some time - 'til I re-activate it with a data plan later this year (then update my OS at that time)!
