OS on an 8520


I have a BB 8520 with OS5 on it, and until recently was making daily use of a financial app. However, the maker of the app has discontinued the version for OS5 and now only supplies a version suitable for OS6 or later. Is there any way in which I can load OS6 or later onto my device? From what I've read on the web, it sounds as though it's not possible, just wondered if anyone knew othewise...? Don't especially want to upgrade my device, but I guess that's my only option?


Many thanks in advance

Re: OS on an 8520

Hi mdsp


Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums



Sorry .. But your BlackBerry® Curve 8520 doesn't support OS 6 , it don't meet the minimum requirement to run any higher OS then OS5 .


You can search app world for any equivalent financial app for you can email the vendor of that app and request them to continue there support for OS 5 .


Otherwise I don't find any other solution.
