8700 Aplication Upgrade

I have an 8700r, currently running Software 4.2.

I recently saw the new application 4.5 as available.

I downloaded the 4.5 Desktop Application to my PC, but dont know how to run the new 4.5 into my Blackberry.

Does anyone have a link I can plug into & upgrade my phone?

Many Thanks

Re: 8700 Aplication Upgrade

If you have to ask that question, you should wait until your carrier has the OS available.  Right now it's only available from a few overseas carriers.


Your provider's download site should be listed  here.


Once available, you'll download and install the OS onto your computer, then connect your BlackBerry with Desktop Manager running, and DM should detect that you have a newer OS available for your device and automatically start the upgrade process.
