I'm using a unbranded, factory unlocked BB Bold 9900 with a T-Mobile prepaid sim.
My current software version is 7.0 Bundle 1672.
I would like to update my device software to 7.1
I have downloaded the BB Desktop Software (Version 2.3.1 (build 5)). The Desktop Software tells me that there are no updates available. I also tried to get an update over the air but that didn't work either.
I'm using a Mac laptop with Mac OS X.
Can someone please help me.
Thanks in advance.

Tmobile has 7.1 available for the 9900, heres how you do it:
and used the tmobile software link: http://www.t-mobile.com/bbupgrade/
Click on the get software button on the Bold 9900 section and install it. Before trying to upgrade to 7.1, you'll need to delete the vendor.xml file.
See this link:
As always, do a full backup first using the desktop manager and setup blackberry protect before upgrading device software!

gosh, you're right, you did say a mac. I'm not sure this type of update can be done using a mac. Maybe someone else can chime in if they have ideas. Can you find a PC to try this on?
