    Not actually an upgrade. This OS is a renaming of an older version. AT&T is always late to the game.
    So which OS is the newest for BB 9900?

    Thein,

    Did you manually backup your BBM contacts?
    Or do you use the newest BBM (v7+)?
    If your answer is none above, then you might have lost all of your BBM contacts. If your answer is one of the above, then there will be few more steps to restore your BBM contacts.

    Cheers.

    well then why'd they put it out? Lol I'm not upgrading to that.
    .862 AT&T is more for AT&T users, a new OS without the mic issue. Voice call is very clear, and has a good signal strength. The temp. is a lil bit warm like the .694 AT&T.

    I don't suppose that the AT&T version has the (poorly implemented) WiFi calling module that T-Mobile deployed, eh? On that note...I'll wait, until **** freezes over, perhaps.

    Gave mine back and received refund... BlackBerry Turkey made me angry and I decide not to buy Z10...
    Rroy - was just in Turkey for a week and a half - business & pleasure. Just curious what happened to make you angry. I know that Turkcell can be a pain in the rear.

    Just curious why Desktop Software says no updates available, however OTA says there is? Any thoughts on how I should proceed.

    With legacy BBOS devices, I would recommend using neither DM nor OTA for updating the OS. DL the OS to your PC via your PC's browser from BB carrier downloads page.

    http://us.blackberry.com/support/app...oad-sites.html

    Follow my OS Upgrade Guide on Page 1; I think it was post #2.

    I haven't update my Guide yet, but newest BBM versions don't actually have option to Backup anymore. I think you were saying same thing though anyway.

    There is always at least one more method though:
    You can use DM for a selective Restore as it also backs up your BBM Contacts.

    But just updating your BBM should do it too, as others posted already.
    I always just shrink out BBM, BB World, Protect, ARM, and few others, as the OS rarely has even the same version, let alone a newer one. If you shrink them out, you'll keep whatever version you already had loaded before the OS update.

    Good point!
    Just asked for it to be Stickified instead of AT&T. 694 thread.

    Not exactly... but yes.

    You would need to have a virtual Windows environment using Bootcamp, VMWare Fusion, etc. Then install DM for PC and the OS in the virtual environment.

    Are you on AT&T? If so, just let DM for Mac do it automatically.
    If not, use the 861 release instead, per the other Sticky Thread. It's actually newer than this.

    Mac only can update OS , based on vendor ( not carrier ) of connected phone.. internet required
    Or,as Elite said,try install VM ( i had no luck with VM,often stuck in the middle when upgrading on progress)

    What's the change log for this update?
    03-22-13 11:19 AM

    Did the shrink, loaded, and working just fine. The annoying AT&T address book doesn't seem to be included. Running very smooth (don't they all the first few days) and the Wireless & Wi-Fi seem to have a stronger signal than the Berrylicious Hybrid I was using.

    Update: Definitely smoother going than any other OS I have used so far.

    Go for it!
