Thanks for replying it says 4.2.0.64 so it would be up to 2GB, how can I upgrade it to 4.3 or higher?

Re: is there a limit on micro SD cards used on a 8100?

Thanks for your reply, If I am not mistaken the link is for upgrading the software on my PC I would like to upgrade my device software so I can use a higher size of micro Sd card, any idea?

I am  not familiar at all with the blackberry phones, mine is 8100 and I am good with computers but not excellent, so If you or anybody else can help me out I will appreciate it.

Once again my version is 4.2.0.64 and it can only handle a 2GB micro Sd card, can I upgrade the sofware to 4.3 or higher so I can use a micro SD card of 4GB or higher?
