A friend of a friend upgraded his Bold 9780 to OS7. is that possible? & will it work?

Hi everyone,<br><br>A friend of a friend of mine upgraded his Bold 9780 which was running under OS6 to OS7 at a gadget shop.I'm currently using the same as he is & very curious about this. I asked my friend if the upgrade 9780 is working properly & she said that it's running perfectly & faster than it was on the OS6.<br><br>I need to know if this is possible bcos I thought OS7 are only for the new blackberrys that were preloaded with the software.<br><br>Anyone who has done this, I would appreciate for further info.<br><br>TQ so much! :smileyhappy:

I hate to burst the ol' bubble, but there is no OS7 for the 9780.

If you demand this friend of a friend does have it installed... let's see a screen shot of the About screen.

Well, I hate to have to keep telling you that you're wrong... but.

 

The latest OS release available for the 9780 model is 6.0.0.706, not OS7.

 

Your link above refers to OS for these models:
