I am running 5. .423.
How can I update to the latest os5 version?
Where can I find it?
And, if updating, how can I get apps like Word2go, Sheet2go, back again after updating?
Thanks in advance for any help

For the latest OS version, you must find out which carriers have that model BB and then dig into their download pages via this portal:
The best procedure to install (upgrade, downgrade, reload) an OS package that I know of is this one:
If you choose an OS package that is from a carrier that is not your BBs original carrier, then insert, between steps 1 and 2, the deletion, on your PC, of a file named VENDOR.XML.
As for the ToGo apps, if you have purchased the premium version, then you can download them again from the Dataviz website and then simply enter your activation codes. If you only have the standard edition, then hopefully it is still included in the OS level you install. I don't recall if DataViz still allows free download of the Standard edition from their website or not.

220.127.116.119 is the latest OS officially released for 9700.
Yes, your device backup and reinstall will take care of the DocsToGo apps you mentioned.
Do a backup of your device first, using Desktop Manager > Backup. Close Desktop Manager upon completion.
1. Download the OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the file you downloaded.
2. Go to c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader and delete the file named "vendor.xml."
3. Plug in BB and double click on "Loader.exe." It's located in the same place as the above vendor.xml file.
