Re: Blackberry Storm 9530 Update?

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!

 

Updating OTA is, IMO, the worst choice. Typically, many have wound up losing all of their data. Not pretty.

 

Better is to use the update package from your carrier (VZW, can I assume?) and the Desktop Software (so as to Backup and Restore). Follow these instructions:

 

Good luck!

Hello,

 

While this link is contained within the prior link provided, I'll provide it again for you:

Each carrier releases their own OS...some are the same, some are not. The carriers choose. So, use that portal, find your carrier, find your device, and that will tell you what is "next" for you.

 

Good luck!
