Operating System

I am looking for software that will allow me to open and edit Excel spreadsheets (and sort data).  I found a software by dataviz that looks like it may work but it requires OS 4.5 or higher.  My OS is (platform  Is it possible to upgrade your operating system, and if so, how?

The next version coming out 4.5 has Doc to go in it. It is supposed to have those capabilities. Whether it will be as strong as an app built expressly  for that function I don't know. Each carrier now has a version of 4.5 and when they release it for their clients it's "official" meaning they will support it.

I would wait for the "official release from your carrier before you install another version of OS 4.5. Just my opinion. I'm waiting for Verizon, cause if I "brick" my phone I don't wants to be told they no nothing about 4.5 and can't help.

Watch your providers website for the new release. Rumor is that they should come out in September.

If Docs to Go doesn't suit your needs, then you will have a clean supported 4.5 to put Dataviz on.

Just my opinion.

Re: Operating System

Documents To Go is a product of DataViz which includes Word To Go and Slide Show To Go. These two come with BlackBerry OS 4.5. If you upgrade from 1.000.080 to 1.002.016 then the application you'll be able to use Sheet To Go.
