    I am a relatively new owner of an 8820 (at&t), love the phone and still learning all the tricks. My question is about OS upgrades, can I just upgrade to the newest OS available, or step at a time? Do I need to be using the latest version of Desktop manager regardless of OS? I have OS vers. 4.2.2.169 on my device, what are the advantages/pitfalls of upgrading?

    I used the search feature first so I wouldn't be a total noob but, I didn't find what I needed. Thanks in advance for any help.

    You can update to any OS you want. Please know what you are doing before you kill your BB. I recommend DM 4.6 for your phone however I do not recommend using DM to upgrade your OS

    Thanks for the help, I like to read ALOT before I start making changes. Flashed and flexed a lot of motorolas so, its not foreign, but this is the first BB.

    Are there advantages to the upgrade or is it a gotta have the latest/greatest thing?
