    I updated from the 4.3 to the 4.5. Everything runs good, except when I receive a video mms, I cant hear any sound. I called Verizon to report this, they say its a bug in the 4.5 and I wont be able "downgrade" back to the 4.3... WEIRD

    Anyhow, is anyone also having this issue?

    RIM sent me an email today telling me that I could download OS 4.5 for my 8830. I went to the link and all went well until I got the message that my software was already up to date, so it wouldn't do it.

    I called VZW and was told that 4.5 wasn't available for the 8830 yet.

    So I'm getting conflicting answers.

    Rim may have it available, VZW will tell it is not available as they have not released it.

    Your profile says you are using an 8830. Is that a typo? Are you using a Curve? Are you running beta 4.5 coming from 4.3? I don't know anyone with an official release of 4.3 or 4.5 for the 8830. 4.2.x is the latest official release by verizon.
    Just looking to get my facts straight. I received an email yesterday to upgrade to 4.5 but the auto-update site on BB says I am up-to-date and the VZW download site says 4.2 is the latest available.

    Yes, I have an 8830. I got the same BB email and had the same result. VZW told me that the upgrade was only for the Curve, while BB says that it's also for the 8800 series.

    I've scoured this forum and the Web... Where can I get BB8830 latest OS. I have VZW and they 4.2.2 only. When I got to bb.com, they re-direct me to VZW to get the software.

    Is there a direct link to a download page someone can offer? I swear it has been three days of spinning my wheels.

    Mil Gracias.

    4.2.2 is th latest. 8830 will most likely not be updated to 4.5 anytime soon that I am aware of.

    thanks, lastraid. may i ask:

    1. how do you know 8830 won't get updated?

    2. can i update somehow? in short, i want to buy a 16 GB micro SD card but my understanding from this link is that i can't use 16 GB with 4.2.2, which i have loaded:

    FYI - Verizon doesn't seem to want to support their hardware after their newest stuff is released ... I would suggest performing a Google search for "4.5.0.101 BlackBerry 8830" and downloading on of the things that come up. If you still can't find it, let me know (via PM) and I'll be sure you get it. It's easy to install although a bit of a nail-biter halfway thru when it seems the phone isn't responding!
    It all seems to work great and majority of the new features are available. Haven't found DocsToGo yet, though.

    Just remember - you upgrade at your own expense. Like someone mentioned, OS 4.5 is not supported officially by VZW.
