Were you able to downgrade your Desktop Software from OS 6 to OS 5 as well?
If I choose, how would I downgrade both the BB and Desktop?
You don't need to downgrade the Desktop Software...it is always advised to be using the current version of the Desktop Software, regardless of the OS level on your BB.
From a PC, you can install any OS package to a BB via this procedure:
Note that while written for "reload", it can be used to upgrade, downgrade, or reload -- 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!

Wow, thank you for the prompt reply, very much appreciated!
Before I downgrade, I'd like to run this by you. I'm actually happy with OS 6, upgraded from OS 3, but the only issue I'm having is that my device calendar is not syncing correctly with my Outlook calendar. Other than that I'm okay with everything.
Have you seen this issue?

upgraded from OS 3
Wow...that's one heck of a jump in OS level! I'm not even sure if/when OS3 existed! I'm sure you meant some other level.
the only issue I'm having is that my device calendar is not syncing correctly with my Outlook calendar.
I suggest you post this into the appropriate desktop sofware forum (MAC or PC):
When you do, I suggest you provide a bit more detail..."not syncing correctly" isn't really something that anyone can provide any diagnosis from. So, over there, please provide the following:
Cheers and good good luck!
