Upgraded Software



i jus did a software update of my 9700 and realise that there's alot of features and layout is totally different from what i used to be using. Wondering if there's any way where i can revert back to the old layout. I have difficulty in strolling throught facebook. As i realise my cursor wont select some of the postings. It seems that the new layout is more suitable for BB touchscreen user.


I m currently using 6.0 Bundle 2921.

Re: Upgraded Software

Hello lene and welcome to the BlackBerry® Support Community Forums.


Thanks for your question on how to downgrade the device software on your BlackBerry® Bold™ 9700 smartphone.


To revert to a previous software version have a look at KB14249 "How to return to a previous version of BlackBerry Device Software".


Be sure to backup your data before hand. There is a link in the article which will show you how to do the backup.


Hope this answers your question!
