    My 9700 is still on OS 5. I'm thinking of upgrading to 6. I"ve read a few threads here where people are not so happy w/ 6. What are the biggest advantages of it over 5? Should I get the version provided by Tmobile or look for the latest version? And finally is there a way to backup the few apps I have on my phone or will I have to download them all again?

    Start up your desktop manager for Blackberry on your PC and make sure it is up to date. I would use the t-mobile release. You can use the desktop manager to back up your device and reload. Also if you are looking for more help or other options, here is a great thread put together by a Crackberry member.

    Hey, thanks a lot. I will check that out. I actually just downloaded the new desktop manager before posting, so that's up to date, and I backed up all my data again.

    It is nice to upgrade from OS5 to OS6, for many new app and themes nowadays are not compatible with OS5 anymore.

    Just follow the steps for upgrading to OS6, then restoring your app back.
    But, one thing you should remember, not all OS5's app will work on OS6.
