I am experiencing a glitch on my Curve 8520 specific to the installed software version (22.214.171.1240) : it doesn't ring when I receive a call or text. Apparently version 126.96.36.1991 does not have this problem. I want to downgrade the phone software.
Can someone tell me the step-by-step process to downgrade the phone, including a link where I can download version 188.8.131.521 ? Thank you

From a PC, you can install any compatible (e.g., for your exact BB Model Number) OS package to a BB via this procedure:
Note that while written for "reload" and the Storm, it can be used to upgrade, downgrade, or reload any BB device model -- it all depends on the OS package you download and install to your PC. You can even use a different carriers OS package by simply inserting, between steps 1 and 2, the deletion, on your PC, of a file named VENDOR.XML. Be sure that you remove, from your PC, any other BB device OS packages as having more than one installed to the PC can cause conflicts with this procedure.
If you are on MAC, you are limited to only your carriers sanctioned OS packages...but can still use any levels that they currently sanction. See this procedure:
Good luck and let us know!
