Hi and Welcome to the Community!
From a PC, you can install any compatible (e.g., for your exact BB Model Number) OS package to a BB via this procedure:
Note that while written for "reload" and the Storm, it can be used to upgrade, downgrade, or reload any BB device model -- it all depends on the OS package you download and install to your PC. You can even use a different carriers OS package by simply inserting, between steps 1 and 2, the deletion, on your PC, of a file named VENDOR.XML. Be sure that you remove, from your PC, any other BB device OS packages as having more than one installed to the PC can cause conflicts with this procedure.
If you are on MAC, you are limited to only your carriers sanctioned OS packages...but can still use any levels that they currently sanction. See this procedure:
Good luck and let us know!

Thanks a lot for the information you shared.. however, my phone is bold 9700 which i forgot to mention before and also, there is no problem in my phone what so ever, but if i upgrade my OS from 5 to 6 and lets say there is a problem for example, phone running slow or something like that, then i wanted to know whether i can restore my old operating system which is 5...
So the link you've provided does it apply to any of the models of BB?
and if i upgrade and there is any problem in future can i restore my old operating system that is OS 5 instead of OS 6?
Waiting for your reply
Thank you again...

When you re-read my post above, you will find this line:
Hence, the process applies to any BB model.

I have done the OS update on 9700 successfully and it works great. Only problem which I encountered after the update is that all my emails and call logs gets deleted automatically even if I set it to keep forever.
