Updating Blackberry Curve 8520 to OS6

As you can see on UK Blackberry homepage, the OS6 software is now available for Curve smartphones. I plugged in my device, the Desktop Software launched and nothing happened. How can I update my Blackberry to OS6, please help!! :-)

Re: Updating Blackberry Curve 8520 to OS6

gmusic, Greetings, and welcome to the BlackBerry.com Community Support Forums.

 

No, there is no OSv.6 for the 8520 Curve.

There is an OS v.6 for the 9300 Curve model, and those are two very different models.

 

Sorry.
