Re: Bold 9700: Upgrade to OS6?

follow 00bungee00's directions.  I asked for it a few days ago and it worked perfectly.  Not only do I like the operation of my device better, it is faster than it was with os5.  It is pretty great so far, and it installed perfectly when following the instructions I received on page 8, in a post from mar. 3.

Mine worked fine...I suppose the BB desktop software saved all of my settings. You probably need to look up your carrier's internet connection settings to reset what you have.

Re: Bold 9700: Upgrade to OS6?

Thanks for that i will look into it! with OS 5 i would go into options, advanced settings and then browser to scroll down and select the browser option. How do I do that with OS 6? Many thanks

You can't select a different browser, this is one of the features of OS6. Its automatically selects the browser for you.

Re: Bold 9700: Upgrade to OS6?

Hi JSanders,

 

Thanks for your post regarding the OS6 Manual upgrade, i live in Botswana and we are leapyears behind, i would just like to know please if i choose another providers OS and do the manual upgrade and restore service books which i have backed up will this work to ensure i still have access to network facilities etc?

 

does it make any difference which providers os i use?

 

thanks in advance.
