Hi tapasya

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Community Forums

 

 

Of course you can Update your Curve 9680  9380 to 7.1 ,Infact almost All Carriers have released 7.1 for Curve 9380.If service center has not updated your device then you can try it by yourself . You can use BlackBerry Desktop Software to do the update .

 

KB03901 :How to update BlackBerry Device Software using BlackBerry Desktop Software for Windows

 

But before that do a Complete Backup of your device.

Let us know if you feel any problem.

Re: Os 7.1 for 9380

Yes, the 9380 model is able to upgrade OS 7.1

Device operating system releases are "released" by specific carriers once they have certified and trained their support techs, but still, you are able to load to any carrier's same model by following the instructions below.

So, Airtel might not yet have released OS7.1, but others have.

See the link below for the download, and follow these simple installation instructions.

First locate your carrier and the OS file you wish to use.
http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support/downloads/download_sites.jsp

Do a backup of your device first, using Desktop Manager > Backup. Close Desktop Manager upon completion.

1. Download the OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the file you downloaded.

http://www.blackberryos.com/9380-operating-software/32875-discuss-official-os-7-1-0-569-blackberry-c...
2. Go to c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader and delete the file named "vendor.xml." (You might have another Vendor.xml file hiding on your computer. Open Windows Explorer and under the Organize button (on Windows 7, there are similar tools for Vista and XP) click on "Folder and search options." Under the View tab, make sure that your computer is set to show hidden folders and files. Once you've done this, search your C:\ drive for "Vendor.xml".)
3. Plug in BB and double click on "Loader.exe." It's located in the same place as the above vendor.xml file.

**Starting with the later OS6 releases, there are now three copies of VENDOR.XML
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader (for 32-bit Windows XP/Vista/7)
==========OR============
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader (for 64-bit Windows Vista/7)
C:\Documents and Settings\*name*\AppData\Roaming\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML
C:\Documents and Settings\*name*\Application Data\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML
You can also just search for VENDOR.XML. Make sure that you choose ADVANCED SEARCH and include hidden files. It should show the file in at three locations. Delete every copy that it finds.
