    What is the difference between BB Operating System and BB Desktop Manager?

    I have downloaded the latest version of Desktop Manager from the BB website, but I can't seem to find a place to download the OS. I already went to T-Mobile's website-where I read I could find it-but no luck.

    Also, is the Blackberry Device Software the same as the Operating System?

    A somewhat long explanation would probably be good!

    I nuked my phone so I must re-download everything, I do have straightforward instructions on how to do this part!!!

    Thank you very much!

    BlackBerry - BlackBerry Desktop and Device Software Download Sites
    Here is the list of all carrier OS download sites.

    Sorry you got a bricked berry, here are links for the procedure to bring it back to life: Lecture 12: How to Reload the Operating System on a "Nuked" BlackBerry. You might also want ot read this: Lecture 36: How to Upgrade Your BlackBerry's OS Using App Loader.

    Desktop software is what you use to manage your device (thus, Desktop Manager), device software is the OS itself.

    Good luck!
