cant upgrade to OS 7.1

hello everyone...

 

i just bought a blackberry bold 9790 operating on OS 7. however, i found that rim released the OS 7.1 with so many new features; i have been trying to upgrade my OS but the software keeps saying "there are no updates for your blackberry" although blackberry's website says that any OS 7 device can upgrade to 7.1.

 

plz help...

There are no updates available from YOUR carrier. That means that they have not fully tested it and received training from RIM on supporting it. However, many other carriers worldwide have released it and you're free to download it from any of them.

One of the sections in these forums is Device Software. If you find it and look under it, there should be a thread entitled Reloading Software To Your Phone (or something similar). Follow the directions there and you'll have OS 7.1 on your phone.


I hope that helps you. Smiley Happy

Hi nugolabs

 

Welcome 

 

You can download OS 7.1 for your device 9790 from here Carrier .But remember Don't forget to delete those Vendor .XML files after installing from your PC.
