    This is driving me nuts!!! Got a message yesterday on my curve 8530 from Blackberry re. update available. Tried to download and install and the usual happened. The usual being: as soon as I start the download, the BB update seems to delete my current browser (FF) and replace it with BB Browser - I don't want that!!! And, as a result, my e-mail is unable to connect, my wi-fi disappears and I have to reload it etc.....

    This happens every time I dl an update to the OS.....does anyone know why? Or what I can do to prevent this - total disruption of most of my most important settings....

    many thanks for any help

    Next time you update, follow the procedure in this guide:

    How to Upgrade Your BlackBerry's OS Using App Loader

    Best way to do it. And do remember to make a backup, just in case.

    No, not really. You'll have to use Desktop Manager (BlackBerry Desktop Software) for Mac... I never liked using it thou... AppLoader does the job faster/better if you ask me.


    Either that or: a) borrow yourself a PC; b) run Windows on your Mac.
