Re: Storm 9500 OS upgradation

Hello jpkurian and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Software updates are carrier determined.


If this BlackBerry is unlocked, you need to install the originating carrier's device software.


You can find the list of carriers here and use the Desktop Software to update your device.


As for Wi-Fi, this device model wasn't equipped with built in Wi-Fi. The 2nd generation Storm 9520 and 9550 has this option.


Hope this helps.

Wi-Fi doesn't compatible with 9500.
Updating your blackberry OS, go to BBDM, and click "update my device".
