Hi there Kendra,

Unfortunately the BlackBerry 9800 will only run OS 6 as there are some hardware upgrades that are required for OS 7. So this means you will not be able to get OS 7 on your Torch 9800. That said though, your carrier may still provide periodic updates for bugs or other slight improvements. But I wouldn't expect too much more there.
