Blackberry 8830 World Editiion Software

I have a Blackberry 8830 World Editiion Smart Phone. I need to reinstall the software and would like to get the latest version. When I get to "Select a Device" I see the 8820 but not 8830. I selected the 8820 software and installed it. Now when I use the device I can highlight all of the applications but not select any. The telephone still works but I can' access anything else.

 

Is this a coincidence or did I mess up by using the 8820 software?  If so, how do I get the 8830 software?

 

Thanks for the help.

That software is actually for the 8330, not the 8830.
