I just got a BB curve and it has OS 4.3. I want OS 4.5 but I have a mac so I can't load it. I also went to several sprint stores and they couldn't update my BB for me.
So, I am wondering if you can tell what OS may be on the device (i.e., the date of manufacture) from the serial number. If you can, does anybody have any idea what to look for in the SS number or how to interpret it? I'm thinking of going back to the store where I bought mine and replacing it with a new one with a later serial number and I want to make sure that I get one with 4.5.
Solved! Go to Solution.

There are no Sprint devices with OS 4.5 out of the box. Sprint hasn't released 4.5, so they are all 4.3 right now.
There is no way to tell the OS from the number on the box, either.

Right. You either have to wait for Sprint to release the 4.5 OS, or you can install another carrier's 4.5 OS on your phone. If you're up for that go to this page and click on your model at the top of the page

Thanks both of you for responding. You've saved me some work today.
On a related note, will I be update the OS over the air when it's released by Sprint or do I have to find somebody with a pc?
Thanks again for your help.
