Re: Desktop software for blackberry 7

Your PlayBook will continue to use BlackBerry Desktop Software whereas your new Q10 will require BlackBerry Link.


www.blackberry.com/desktop for your PlayBook and 9900

www.blackberry.com/blackberrylink for your new Q10


When you say that you try to download BDS from the BlackBerry website and nothing is happening, are you getting any error messages?  If not, what steps are you following to download it, i.e. what page are you typing in and which link are you clicking.
