Re: New BB user software update

Hello Bashman40

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums

 

If possible don't look or try to update your BlackBerry Bold 9700 to any higher OS like OS6 , Operating System 5 will offer a good device response and won't face any issue like low memory , device lagging or freezing. You can Search this forums and will find that most user who installed OS6 on there Bold 9700 finally have to downgrade to OS5 because  Bold 9700 don't have enough memory

 

But still if you want to update let us know.

Hello Bashman40

 

 

Thanks for considering that :smileyhappy: Believe me you choose the right steps, Now with OS5 you can Install a few more apps , while browsing you can open multiple tabs , and most important you will get better performance  as compared to OS6 on your Bold 9700.

 

 

Good luck.
