Blackberry Bold Updates

Greetings, I bought my first blackberry a few weeks back and so far I am loving it. How ever I do have a question that I havn't found answered anywere else so I registered to post about it.


I sync my Bold between 2 computers both running Desktop manager 4.7 however they both say that the Bold is needing software update before each sync. Suggestions range from Blackberry messenger update to even danish language. Also both pc's suggest different updates. At first I ignored it but then I figured i click update, but when I did it, it went thru all the upgrade procces and at the end said the Bold didnt have enought memory for the update


I checked the both the Bold memory and the SD card memory and it says:


Aplication Free space 18.7 MB

Device Memory 857 MB Free

Memory Card Free Space  1.2 GB Free



Any ideas? Am I doing something wrong?

Re: Blackberry Bold Updates

No, you're not doing anything wrong.


Look at Options > About, third line down beginning with a "v.4.xxx"

Upgrades are available from other carriers to upgrade your BB. It will work find if you follow the directions exactly as posted in the instructions in the following link.

Do a complete backup of your device (using Desktop Manager) before the upgrade process.

Re: Blackberry Bold Updates

Thanks that seemed to have worked, now it only asks me to update Danish and Norewgan languages for some reason. (I dont use them or have them installed).  Guess no way to impede that.


Kudos to ya !
