The link you gave is for the German vodafone website. Will the OS be in German too? I don't think so, but might be. 

 

Thanks for your post!

It should be multi language. You can double check when you save the file as it should have multilanguage in the file name

Re: Bold 9700: Upgrade to OS6?

Is it possible to upgrade a 9700 to OS6, when it is on at&t?  I have desktop software 6, but the device is still on 5...What do I need to do?

Occam's Razor nearly always applies when troubleshooting technology issues!

New to the Community? Click here and also here for helpful guidance. Also please click here for additional helpful information to guide you as you proceed. I always recommend that you treat your BlackBerry like any other computing device, including using a regular backup schedule...click here for an article with instructions. If anyone has been helpful to you, please show your appreciation by clicking the button. Need a reference to BB10 OS/SR versions? Click here. Need a specific BB10 AutoLoader? Send me a private message.
