no Updates?

I really would like to know why the hell blackberry fails on offering updates on time in oversea.

i'm currently living in germany and need to wait several months for software updates which have been long available in north america by then.

it's pretty annoying if my friends profit of these new software updates while i can't do anything.

i mean it's the same phone and the same software, so where is the problem?

i'm totally pissed of this US market orientation.
i won't start about prices either....

Re: no Updates?

Hi and welcome to the forums!


RIM creates the device OS for all models of Blackberry devices. The OS is then delivered to the carriers for testing and evaluation. Your carrier determines when or if the new device OS is released.
