OS 6.0 And The Blackberry Bold 9700

I am new to Blackberry's, so please forgive me if this is a stupid question. I read that OS 6.0 is coming out soon. Will I be able to load it on my T-Mobile Bold 9700? If so, what's the best way to know when it's available? Will I be able to just hook my Blackberry up to the Desktop Manager on my computer and load it? Thanks.

Re: OS 6.0 And The Blackberry Bold 9700

No one can answer those questions yet.

 

My 'thinking' is that OS 6.0 will be released first on new devices. If it follows past experience, you will probably see it available for some of the newer (like the 9700 devices) at some point, but no one knows, and those that do, certainly aren't saying.

 

So ... my recommendation: Check back around here about early-mid summer.

Re: OS 6.0 And The Blackberry Bold 9700

Hi folks - I'm also new to BB and a new owner of the Bold 9700. I bought it unlocked overseas, but use it on Rogers here in Canada. I'm wondering if by this stage now that OS 6.0 has launched in the US anyone out there has a better of idea of if (or when) the new OS will roll out to existing users of the Bold 9700? Also, will it be automatically available when I update software through the sync with the desktop manager, or will I need to do something special to get it? Apologies in advance if these are dumb questions, but I'm new to BB and would appreciate any help. Thanks!

Re: OS 6.0 And The Blackberry Bold 9700

Hello adehejia,

 

OS6 will be released with 9800 soon. Soon they will be releasing it for 9700 and few other devices.

 

I think we just need to wait :smileyhappy:


I love What I Do

Dear  vdehejia

 

 

A good source for information for Rogers customers:

 

http://redboard.rogers.com

 

They'll probably announce it there first.

Re: OS 6.0 And The Blackberry Bold 9700

I understand that 9700s can now upgrade to Blackberry 6.  What is the experience to date as to the result of this upgrade? 

 

Are the performance improvement and feature-updates worth the effort?

 

Is the upgrade straight forward or are there pitfalls?

 

Thanking in advance,

 

John

My previous post is pre-mature. I will continue to monitor the thread for a solution once 9700OS6 is available.  Sorry for the confusion.
