Unable to update to 7.1 in Porsche Design P´9981


I am trying to update the SW to 7.1 in the Porsche Design P9981.


The phone is currently running 7.0 build 2395. I am in Portugal and use a Portuguese carrier that provides BlackBerry services.

I tried using Desktop Software, no new updates are detected.

I tried OTA as well, but in the Options menu there is only an option for Device - About software versions, but there isn't an option or icon to check for updates

I tried web-based updates but again, no updates available were detected.

 Is it possible that 7.1 isn't yet available for download in Portugal? Can you please help out?

Best regards

It might not be available through your carrier.I checked here: 



I did find some articles on crackberry concerning 7.1 for that phone but you'll have to proceed at your own risk:
