Bluetooth update version 1.1 to 3.0 ???

Hi, I just received a bluetooth headset working on bluetooth 3.0

My BB Bold 9780 just has version 1.1., hence headset is not working. Just updated software to 6.0 2949, but bluetooth is still the same version.

 

Question: How can I update to version 3.0

 

Thanks

Re: Bluetooth update version 1.1 to 3.0 ???

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

You cannot update the BlueTooth separate from the OS. Rather, you only get what the OS includes, and your hardware supports. There is no way to upgrade a BT radio (hardware) that only supports 1.1 to 3.0...such is not merely a software upgrade, but a hardware one as well.

You can try even newer OS levels to see if perhaps they include something newer for you, but honestly I doubt it.

Good luck!
