Re: Blackberry Desktop Manager for 8320 - OS

Hi there!


The device and DTM versions are independent...you can run an OS version that is older than your DTM version. For me, I'd probably not want to run an older DTM version than my OS version, but I've not read that such is a problem, it's just my personal theory.


What you definitely should do is check which version of DTM you need by virtue of how you sync -- if you tether and sync to a PIM, choose a DTM version that supports your PIM -- see this matrix:

  • KB12268 Applications supported by BlackBerry Desktop Manager for synchronization


Me, I'd select the latest DTM version that supports my PIM. If you don't tether-sync, then the PIM compatibility is irrelevant...so choose DTM 5.0.


Next, be sure and DL and install (to your PC) your carriers device OS package atop of DTM so that, when you tether, DTM knows what it needs to know about your BB on your carrier and can present you with appropriate things. You can get your carriers OS DL package via this portal:



Hope that helps! Let us know!
