Blackberry 8900 software update.

I installed update 5.0...a couple of weeks ago and was having ringtone issues. I  reinstalled the old software temporarily . I was wondering if it is safe to install the latest software version or are there still issues.....

Re: Blackberry 8900 software update.

5.0.0.822 had ringtone issues.  5.0.0.900 is "supposed" to have fixed them.

Re: Blackberry 8900 software update.

Hey guys!  I have just updated my 8900 to the 5.0 and cannot set ringtones to a contact.  I go thru all the steps and the result is always the same.  NO CHANGE!  Any help/advice is much appreciated.  Thx

Re: Blackberry 8900 software update.

What is the exact version of the 5.0 software you are running? 5.0.0.822 has ringtone issues. 5.0.0.900 should have them fixed

Re: Blackberry 8900 software update.

I lost my ringtones/alerts yesterday.  I have 5.0.0.822 and when I attempt to update, it says I have the current OS for the phone.

Re: Blackberry 8900 software update.

@BeckyT: Have you tried a hard reset (aka a battery pull)

 

@Nbacklund: Lemme guess, AT&T? AT&T (and a bunch of others) made 822 thier official 5.0 back in september. Most other carriers officially released 900 around december/january, AT&T did not (yet). Your options to permanently fix it are to download/install 900 from a different carrier or roll back to 4.6 from AT&T. Either one, follow the guide here.
