    Hey friends. This is my very first post on this forum. I have been searching a lot of threads and benefiting from the valuable suggestions and solutions from all the experts here and I would like some help regarding the updating of my OS. Now I am a newbie, just bought my unlocked Bold 9700 and don't have much sense of it but i want to upgrade to the latest OS. Can someone give me a link or please tell me a detailed way of doing it.

    Thanks a million in advance.

    Ok here goes

    Make sure you download Desktop Manager from the blackberry website

    Then when booting desktop manager attach the USB cable to your computer and device

    Once all the passwords and all are given then you will click update device in the top-left dropdown menu

    DM will check for updates. If it went successful with your carrier and DM you should get some version of OS 6.
    If not that means your carrier doesn't support OS 6 yet.
    You can still upgrade but that's tough to do hope this helped!

    What would be my carrier? This phone is originally from Orange but I got it unlocked and now I'm using it with another operator.

    I haven't activated my BIS yet. I guess that means I can't upgrade yet. Thanks a lot for your help anyway

    You don't need BIS for upgrade just a SIM or plan. DM checks for phone number
