Hi,

 

I am a new user.  Can you let me know how to find out the device software version?  Thank you so much.


Hi and Welcome...

  • Homescreen > Options > About

 

Typically the third line of text...mine says:

  • v4.7.0.148 (Platform 4.0.0.181)

 

The first set is the important one, saying I'm on the 4.7 device OS, build .148 for my device. 

 

Hope that helps!

Re: Largest Media Card Capacity for BB Curve 8330

I have a 8330 Curve.  Does it work with SD or SDHC media card?

Your BB Model is irrelevant...it is a matter of your device OS level. SD or SDHC is irrelevant...they merely indicate a High Capacity card or not...but still, your device OS level will determine how large an SD card you can use. See this KB:

Re: Largest Media Card Capacity for BB Curve 8330

I feel like an **bleep** but i was wondering if my os supports a 16 gb memory card. I am running version 4.5.0.131. The documentation states that v BlackBerry Device Software 4.5.0.81 and later Up to 16 GB. Is my version later than that. it would seem like 131 is higher than .81 but i am not sure. Can someone let me know?

Re: Largest Media Card Capacity for BB Curve 8330

4.5.0.131 is a "larger" number than 4.5.0.81, so that means your device OS is indeed greater than .81, so you can indeed support up to a 16GB Media Card.

 

FWIW -- The way to compare versioning is to look at each octet, starting at the left, until you find one that does not match, then choose the larger of the two...

 

4 = 4, therefore same

5 = 5, therefore same

0 = 0, therefore same

131 <> 81, therefore different.

 

If, as example, the second octet (5) were different, then you'd stop there and choose the larger one, going no further.

 

Enjoy!

Re: Largest Media Card Capacity for BB Curve 8330

Thank you I was inclined to think that way but not willing to buy a media card and make an assumption. Thank you.
