8310 software update

Hi new to blackberry , but love it. My question is having purchased an 8310 from o2 in the UK some months ago ,I recently read there was a device software update that would allow the 8310 to record video . Searched high and low but cant find this elusive download.

 

Any you people want to help a green newbie ? any help would be appreciated.

 

Regards

Re: 8310 software update

Hi Thanks for the prompt reply. Problem is ive checked that page and it doesnt list details for O2 . I downloaded the new desktop manager software but cant find a way to update the device itself . My 8310 is stuck with v4.2.2.181 of the software. Is it possible you cant upgrade the 8310 to record video if you have purchased from the uk,especially O2.?

Re: 8310 software update

Hi, I'm new at using this forum system.  I own what I thought was a BB 8310 but when I looked within the phone (behind battery) it says 8300.  Nevertheless I have not been able to make the software (the one that comes w phone) work on my laptop.  A friend says it is because I have Vista, is there a desktop software that can be downloades that will work with Vista?

Good Luck

Please boznwid, re-read the post I linked. you will find :
  • that O2 has not published 4.5 yet, but they received it from RIM (meaning they will probably release it someday)
  • a tutorial on how to upgrade your handheld sofware OS thanks to the Desktop Manager
  • how you can do even if O2 has not published the 4.5 yet
