BB OS 7.1 changelog


Simple question. Where can I get a changelog for OS 7.1? I want to understand what has been done before I install updates.


Thank you.

Re: BB OS 7.1 changelog

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


The carriers have responsibility for release and support of the OS packages for their end users...hence, they also have responsibility for changelogs. Sadly, many are rather lax at that responsibility, but you should ask them (Telus, in your case) for such information.


RIM did, however, release this:

However, the specifics continue to be the responsibility of the carriers.


Good luck!

Thank you. The person we purchased our phones from told me i should contact BlackBerry support but i saw that they charge for support and did not want to have to pay for such a simple answer. The page you linked seems to talk more about OS7 then changes from OS7 to OS7.1 then it says this "Already have a smartphone with BlackBerry 7 OS? Update to BlackBerry® 7.1 to enjoy new features." Well what new features.....is it that the mobile hot-spot now supports more then 1 device i though it already did...I have put it back in the hands of or supplier/telus.
