    I have a Blackberry 7290. The current OS installed on it is v4.0.0.198 (Platform I was wondering whether there is a newer OS that would be compatible with my blackberry. When I go onto the blackberry site on the download section it my device isn't on the list so I click on the Device Software 2.7a which is the most recent one and I install it on my computer but it makes no difference; there is also a Device Software 2.6 which I haven't tried yet.

    If there is a compatible version that is newer could you tell me how to get it and what I should do to upgrade my Blackberry.

    Thanks in advance.

    NB: I do not have Internet connection on my blackberry but the Desktop manager detects my blackberry fine.

    I have (platform If your on orange UK that looks like the newest version for that phone. Atleast thats what the blackberry site shows. Did you click on device and desktop link on that page or the "access your service provider " link? This is where you need go. BlackBerry - BlackBerry Desktop and Device Software Download Sites
    Although I think you have the latest for your phone.

    Cool deal. I've been trying to help my girlfriend with stuff for her Blackberry. She didn't know if she really wanted one or not so she got a Blue 7290. She seems to like it well enough.
