I can see this has been posted before but I don't see any actual information. I am waiting for the OS 6.0 upgrade for my Bold 9650 on Sprint but still don't see an available upgrade for it. I just called Sprint and they said they have no information so I should check with RIM. Well, I don't see anything here. Is RIM still releasing OS 6.0 for the 9650 or have these plans changed?
If anyone has any useful information that would be great! I'm waiting for the upgrade to do some BES testing with my firm.

Nobody knows when it will be released. We don't promote/discuss loading unreleased software here on this forum, however, you can find more information about what's out there by going here.

I have several friends using that version. It won't crash your phone. In fact, it's quite stable and working well for most everyone using it. Any carrier could release that exact same version at any time. But it's up to you.

Hmm... I'll have to think about it. I don't like to use unsupported software incase it goes wrong, as well as I'm not sure if it is supported at work or if they'll boot me off BES, so I'll have to check with them

I have gotten a notice of an available upgrade to OS 6.0.
I assumed it was a legit update from Sprint since I used the BB sprint CD to download my BBDM for my 9650 to 2 laptops.
I googled reviews to see if it was advisable to upgrade, Now I am confused. Is the upgrade I am being offered a Beta or leaked version and not an official upgrade?
Did you guys not receive the same notice. You can click HELP > upgrades in BBDM and see if it availabe to you. It is dated 9/09 and looks official to me .
Should I upgrade or not? That was my original question that brought me here .

If you did not manually download and install the OS to your PC and DM is prompting you to upgrade then it's legit. It's up to you whether or not to upgrade.

I would upgrade even a leaked version (just did). Can't tell you whether or not the message you got was legit, but I would suggest going to a trusted source for OS6 and downloading it. (See earlier in this thread for a place to download the leaked upgrade.) If you see an upgrade to OS 6 available when you check for updates from within your device, it probably is legit. For me, the latest update that appeared (before I upgrade to OS 6) was 188.8.131.529.
