Updating Phone without using Desktop Manager


I was wondering is there anyway that I could update my blackberry without having to use the desktop manager as i don't actually have it installed and have never used it for my phone because i don't run windows or mac.

Hello the_bgb_society


Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums



Yes you can update your BlackBerry Over the Air , But.. specially I don't prefer . If you can manage a PC the method are simple , and the Choice is your's if you go for an Update OTA then please do a backup of your device first. For help refer to this Article : How To Backup Your BlackBerry .


If you want to update with the help of a Compter then refer to this KB :

KB16251 : Install or update device software on a BlackBerry smartphone without using BlackBerry Desktop Software


Or to update your device wirelessly refer to this Article : Update your Torch wirelessly


Good luck
