    I have been trying to get updates for my phone through the wireless update now for the last 6 hours and I can't get any response from the phone. Am I doing something wrong or do I need to go about this a different way?

    what are you trying to upgrade? if it's something available via blackberry app world, you can always go to myworld and clear the cache (not that i know what that means exactly!). you can do this by holding down the alt key and entering r-s-t.

    not sure you'll get upgrade notification on apps not supported by bb app world (i.e., google maps). in that case, you'd have to go to the app, find the version information and follow the posted steps to upgrade.

    either way, need to be a little more specific if you want help.

    I'm trying to upgrade my OS. I'm still running 5.0.0.1006 and I know there is an update to OS 6. I was told to go in through the wireless updates and it would pull it up, but it doesn't seem to be working.

    Maybe VZW stopped pushing the OTA

    I don't remember the 6.0 update being available OTA on my 9650.

    Don't use the OTA update anyway. Use a computer. And do a manual backup first in case the automatic backup gets messed up.

    +1. Plug it up to your PC and open BB desktop manager. It will find the update that way and run much quicker than OTA

    Actually I looked in the 524 thread to see if others did it back in May. 524 is old news.

    It did multiple updates, from OS5.? to the latest OS5 and then to the newest OS6. It was fun to watch but OS6 sucks so badly I wiped and went back to OS5 as I've done every time I've messed with OS6.
