Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

 

 

There is a long explanation for this, but the long and short is that some networks are very slow with 

Releasing updates, to get round this you need to download the latest version direct from BlackBerry, 

Install the package on your pc, remove a file that vendors put in the os which will allow you to install on

Your phone,   then plug your phone in with desktop manager open.  

 

It will then prompt you for the update.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

So Ian, what is the latest OS version currently?  Looks like I have to update.  

 

My OS gets very sticky very often, which forces me to have to update or re-install (might as well update) OS.

 

Thanks.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

I don't have the skill to deal with hybrid. I will stick with the .861 I guess. Thanks Ian.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

After the last updated Os, yes. And that is only less than a month since release.

Wonder what stopped them doing the same thing for os7
