    Hi there!

    I am actually asking this for a friend of mine. She has the BlackBerry8830 on Sprint. I am a bold user using 5.0 Does anyone out there know if there is a beta release of OS 5.0 for the 8830?

    OS 5.0 won't be released for the 8830 because the 8830 does not have sufficient memory. Here's a link to the CB Blog post: Official List of BlackBerry Devices to Get OS 5.0 Update | CrackBerry.com

    I was just wondering this, myself. I forgot about that blog post, JeffH. Thanks.

    The best you can do is a hybrid...where some "components" of the OS are 5.0, but the main component is 4.5.

    Well, I'm on a tour right now, but I was just getting nostalgic about my 8830 and this came to mind.
