Help me please!!!!!! I have a Blackberry Pearl 9100 and love it. I love the Pearls. I have had every model everytime they are updated. I actually have 2 questions...First....seeings how blackberry sends out a Pearl once in a blue moon and with the new Blackberry 10 stuff going on....I was wondering if I could update my software to a more advanced one. I love the feel and the simplicity of my Pearl, but do not like how out dated I am compared to everyone else. Is there a way to bump up my Pearl's ability....like to the 06 or 07?? and with the new 10 out is there any word or hint that their might be a Pearl running on 10 in the future....all I have heard is that the Pearl is outdated and it will more than likely discontinued.....IF ANYONE HAS ANY INFO ON THIS PLEASE HELP ME>>>>>

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
At the top of this board, there is a sticky thread:
That thread discusses the OS levels available for your device. Unfortunately, our good friend Xandrex has been unable to keep those updated lately, but it remains a good starting point for your research. What you need to do is:
You can do all of that via the official download portal:
It'll be a bit tedious, since that is first sorted by carrier...but that sticky thread might help you in more quickly finding which carriers support your model.
Your model is indeed old, so I'd not expect much...certainly not BB10 (that's a revolutionary change, and NO pre-Z/Q10 models will receive BB10), and likely not OS7...perhaps not even OS6. But, your research will provide you with the answer you seek.
