    No. You are only able to use an OS that is for your specific device.

    Unfortunately, we won't be getting it. Some people have managed to cook up hybrids however. I don't know how safe or reliable they are though. I am getting the 9700 soon, so I won't worry, but perhaps you may want to look into hybrid OS6's for the 8900.

    There is allegedly a visual theme for the 8900 that simulates BB OS 6, but it was so foolishly named that YOU CANNOT SEARCH FOR IT. !6, or something similar, if memory serves.

    It would be like having "NONE" as a vanity license plate, or having the name John Doe.

    There is this theme (not free) available from the app store:

    HedoneDesign OS6Like - Themes BlackBerry Apps - Crackberry BlackBerry Apps Store

    It looks very OS6 more so than just the icon update.
