Update 9860 to OS: 7.1

Hello All,


I could not find a post on upgrading torch 9860 GSM to OS 7.1 so creating a new post.


On the BB forum as a sticky:


9860 : the official OS releases


Dear all,


I am opening this discussion in order to reference all the OS versions that have been released by mobile phone carriers for the BlackBerry Torch 9860 (GSM). The 9860 is the GSM version of the Torch touchscreen, without a keyboard, that features OS7 including Liquid Graphics, and an autofocus camera.


As a courtesy, I shall ask you to refrain from posting questions in this discussion.


RIM publishes OS versions to carriers, and after training & Q&A, carriers publish the OS. All those OS versions are available here:



To this day, 10 OS versions have been released by 92 carriers for the 9860. Those OS versions are not compatible with the 9850 (GSM+CDMA).



I would like clarify if I can download the 7.1 OS from some other service provider link and update it.


The following is what I have on the phone:


7.0 Bundle 2395 (v7.0.0.579, platform


Early response is appreciated. Also can I increase / decrease the sensitivity of the keyboard?
