RIM Software

Hey, I had a Queestion. I have an 8330 Curve with Software V4.5.0.191 and my wife has an 8530 Curve with V6 or something. Is there a way to install the older, proven software onto her phone? My BB has NEVER had an issue. I've had it for 5-yrs and it has performed seamlessly!! We've only had hers for a few days and it is already worrying me. Thanks for the help. Pat D.

Re: RIM Software

Hi NGHC4230


Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums


               There are no OS 6 from Curve 8530 ,On your Curve 8530 you might have OS5. You can locate your Carrier here  Carriers   and if you Carrier have any lower OS version for that device model you can  Install that .But OS 5 runs well so if that device is running on OS5  I don't suggest to downgrade the OS. To know the device version for device running  OS 4 – 5  =  Options > About > first set of numbers on the third line.
