Do I Need To Upgrade?

Do I Need To Upgrade?
I have 4.5.037 OS. I have some questions and issues such as;
Does my video camera not have a zoom option? I use the track ball but nothing happens. My phone operates fine with no problems that I know of everywhere else and I wondered, do I need to upgrade to a later OS? If so which is recommended and why? I gotta 8310 with ATT carrier if this helps.
Thx. to all in advance!

Re: Do I Need To Upgrade?

I have the same model and if I move my trackball up/down the camera zooms in/out. Or you can also try using the Volume Up/Down keys to zoom. I believe the official AT&T release of OS 4.5 is on Sept 23. So we'll find out then if they have a higher version that the .037 one that you have right now

Re: Do I Need To Upgrade?

most camera issues can be solved by a hard reboot :
  1. remove the battery and wait for a minute
  2. put it back
  3. wait 5min for the blackberry to wake up.

are things better ?

From what I gather so far, the video camera does not have a zoom function. (Bummer)

Re: Do I Need To Upgrade?

So after resetting it, doing what was suggested didn't work?

Mandograss,

 

If you logg onto to www.crackberry.com they have all the upgrades that you need for your bb curve.  I am a member of the site and love it very much.  I have a bb curve 8320 and I upgraded my bb off of the crackberry.com site and I love the new change that was upgraded on my phone.
