    I searched but perhaps not well enough. My BB did not come with a DM CD. I went to the verizon site and downloaded the V.5.0.1 version. Will this work with my Verizon curve 8830 running OS V4.5.0.138?
    Thanks,
    Sean

    The DM version number is independent of the OS version. DM 5 will work with OS 4.5 with no problem.

    Thanks Jeff. I just read in the forums that my OS must be downloaded on my PC before everything will sync properly...Any Idea how I do that?
    Thank you for your help,

    You don't need the BB OS installed on your PC to use DM to sync your personal data to Outlook or to make a backup of your personal data on your PC. You do need the BB OS installed on your PC if you are going to use the DM App Loader to add or remove OS modules from your BlackBerry. You need to download the exact same OS version as is on your BlackBerry. You can get it from RIM, here: BlackBerry Desktop and Device Software Download Sites or, since you are a Verizon user, from Verizon here: Verizon BlackBerry Software Updates. From either source, you want to download 4.5.0.138 for the 8330. The download will be an .exe file. Save it to your PC desktop, then double-click it. That will install the BB OS as an app on your PC. The DM App Loader will then be able to use it.
