    I am wanting to upgrade my OS and I was wondering if I would lose my 3rd party apps that I purchased. Anyone know?

    For the 8330, there haven't been many issues reported on 3rd party apps not being compatible. I had 4.5.97 for the 8330 and didn't have any compatibility issues.

    Welcome newbie!

    I think the OP meant will the app that are installed get wiped from the unit during an OS upgrade. If that's not what was meant, I'd like to know about it. I've never upgraded an OS before, so I don't know what to expect.

    I recently upgraded my OS and I followed some guide off CB on upgrading the OS and backing up 3rd party apps. I'll try to get you the link when I have time to look for it.

    I don't know if I posted that link correctly. I haven't tried posting links with my BB before.

    FWIW, I upgraded and did not lose any of my 3rd party apps.

    BTW, welcome to CB!
