    ok so i tried getting the OTA download of .148 and i finally downloaded it. Then i tried to install it and it keeps telling me that there is not enough memory to update the phone, I've deleted numerous emails and have done countless battery pulls but it wont work...

    So, i tried plugging the phone into DM and I don't know how to update from there, it doesnt seem to really be doing anything. SOMEONE HELP PLEASE!!

    Thanks

    Make sure you don't already have the update in the about section of your phone. DM should notice all available updates. Are you already on a hybrid or leaked OS? If that is the case it may not see any available updates. This is a dumb one but also make sure you're connected to the Internet and that you have DM 4.7 if none of those work maybe try uninstalling any OS' that you have installed and uninstall DM delete all files and folders associated with RIM and DM restart your computer and reinstall DM and try again. Make sure you BACKUP EVERYTHING first just incsase...Good Luck and let me know if any of that worked.

    I'm on .75 and I have the OTA download on my phone, but whenever i try to install the OTA download it tells me I don't have enough memory and to delete things. What am i supposed to delete? I already got rid of like all my emails, etc...

    I am connected to the internet and running DM 4.7...GOD **** THIS PHONE. What can i do?!

    on top of all this, I'm down to 12mb file free memory even after battery pulls and the phone is slower than EVER

    Forget the OTA update.

    Backup your data and third party apps, download the OS from the Verizon site to your pc, and install it. Close DM and plug your phone into the PC. Then go to: Program Files/Common Files/Research in Motion/AppLoader and double click on Loader.exe and the OS should install.

    One of the options is to have the install save and reload your data and apps, but you will have the backup's in case that fails, if you do the backups first.

    All of the instructions you need are in the following link.

    You have got to be kidding me!!! I have deleted all Apps. even the ones that came on the phone. All e-mails gone everything. And it still says that I need to delete 5mb of personal data. The only thing left is the phone itself...It should not be this difficult.
