    The easiest way to check is from your home screen. Hold the alt key, and press E A C E. The App Version is your OS #.

    I'm sorry, that was incorrect. The App Version is your current OS #.

    You've set content protection in security. Go into options and make sure it's off, then do a battery pull. You will then need to delete the contact, and re-add them for the message to finally go away.

    It's the Curve link. If you go to my upgrade guide, and use mirror 4 of the first link, it works well.

    If you already installed the OS do not worry about step 3.

    1. Backup Phone in DesktopManager. (Backup/Restore)
    2. Unplug phone and close DM.
    3. Install new OS .exe file.
    4. Go to the directory Start / Computer / C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader
    5. Delete the vendor file. It should be labeled vendor.xml
    6. Plug phone back into PC and let drivers install.
    7. Launch DM and proceed with update of OS.
    8. Make sure you pick Backup Data and Apps (including Messages) during the backup!!!
    9. DO NOT under any circumstance unplug the phone or use the PC while the update is in progress. Do not let screen saver kick in either.
    10. Unplug and use phone ONLY once the upgrade procedure states that it's finished by the DM update software on the screen.

    From what I've heard 4.5 no longer has the preloaded pictures, but if it does refer back to your thread about unlocking. I explain how to remove them there.

    It should pick up speed, but the file free without removing some of the unnecessary features, might have an impact on that, and your message storage.
