Does anyone know if there will be an OS upgrade to 4.3 or 4.5 (support for >4GB memory card) for the 8830?

Check this link: Blackberry OS FAQ

 

There is a list of wireless providers sites.

 

Check your wireless provider's site and check software for your device model.

For the 8800 series phones a new sotware version V4.5.0.37 is already available on the net.

Thanks but that just leads (eventually) to Verizonwireless (BB 8830) which says only 4.2 is available.

Verizon is not supporting 4.5 for 8830. They are trying to get customers to purchase the new phone rather than release the update (which blackberry already has) to their customers. I just spent 30 minutes being transfered everywhere to finally get "we do not support 4.5" even if its listed on Blackberry's website.

Thanks.  Just for the record, I think I'll call them up to tell them that because of policies like this, I will upgrade by phone......with T-Mobile !

Re: OS Upgrade to 4.3 or 4.5 for BB 8830

I just purchased my 8830 from Verizon and asked about upgrading and was told that I could do that from Blackberry.  Well, I went to Blackberry and upgraded to 4.5 from 4.2.  At first all seemed to work great,  the interface looked crisper and I was able to synch with Outlook.

 

I shut the phone off last night to attend my son's graduation and when I turned it back on there were two issues. The phone failed on my Plantronics 230 earpiece.  I did not have that turned on all the time so it was a surprise. In addition, my phone told me that the radio was no longer on and it did not recognize the Verizon network. Upon another members suggestion, I pulled the battery and it appears to be working fine.  I guess only time will tell.
