    Okay, this is probably a resounding NO but its there anyway I run system 4.5 on my 7290, or even like a hack to force 4.5 to run on the 7290. This is my first BB and I love the keyboard layout and I dont like the pearl or any of the newer BB that dont have the qwerty keyboard, but there are so many things my BB cant do because i need to have OS 4.5 for that...any ideas? or anyone suggest a newer BB with full sized QWERTY keyboard that will run 4.5

    The 87xx series is the oldest bb to get 4.5. You cannot put 4.5 on your 7290. Sorry

    Yea Blueberry is right. If you dont like the size of the curve get the 8700. Its a great device.The keyboard is a little smaller than the 7290 but bigger than the curve. It just doesnt have expandable memory or a camera...not that it matters since the 7290 doesnt either.

    OS 4.5 was never developed for the 7290
