Re: how can I update my BB tourch 9800 Os6 to. Os7

The Torch 9800 cannot be updated to OS 7, due to hardware limitations within the phone.  However, the Torch 9810 (which looks exactly like the 9800) runs OS 7.  Grab a new 9810 and you'll be rocking OS 7.

 

If you're having issues with some apps, tell us which ones are not working to your liking and we can have a look at getting them to work on your phone for you.

 

 

I hope that helps you.  Smiley Happy

Skype is not supported on BlackBerry devices, except if you're a Verizon customer in the U.S.

Viber. It works on OS5 & OS7 but not OS6?!! It seems that the compatibility has skipped a version. to be clear, it's the voice call that is not wroking. texting works fine.

in addition, i cannot simply replace my phone. i have a contract for another 6 months so your recommendation to replace the phone is....not appropriate unless Blackberry wants to give me an upgrade at no charge without contract.
