Is it possible to update software to OS6 or 7?

[ Edited ]

Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to install BB Device Software OS6 or 7 in order to be able to install the new BBM7 in a blackberry Curve 8520.

 

Thanks

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Refer to this thread:

The 8520 is just too limited for anything beyond OS5.

 

Good luck!
