    My colleague has a Blackbery Curve with Telus mobility (CDMA) and it is a company issued phone so I am going to go out on a limb and say it's on the Enterprise server.

    Now reading excel sheets is very handy in our company and having the new OS (4.5) would be a godsend for her. Unfortunately telus is slacking in this department but on my personal phone I have downloaded a different carrier's OS and deleted the vendor file and whatnot as per the guide on this site.

    Is this possible through the desktop manager (following the same guide on this site) with the Enterprise server? Will it affect how she interacts with Enterprise?

    I am not quite sure how enterprise works so it may not have anything to do with what we want to do at all.

    Looking forward to everyone's help!

    It's likely that her IT policy will not allow her to upgrade OS.

    Even if her IT policy does allow her to upgrade her OS, installing an OS that's not supported by the IT department will cause problems for her and you. Worst case, if your BES is not up to date, her phone may not even work after the install. Then the IT people are going to want to know how she got the upgrade, and you're on the hook to explain it.

    She should just ask her IT department what the policy is. I've upgraded the OS my different bb's at least 10 times, while connected via usb to my notebook on the corporate network, and it completes the enterprise activation with no issues whatsoever. You could always just load back the original OS if it didn't work after the upgrade. I personally think people make too much of a big deal over upgrading the OS. It's really easy and if you follow the proper steps, almost foolproof.
