Re: should i upgrade my os?

There is no reason to update your device OS. It should only be done if your wanting a new feature only available in thenew version. Or if your having problems and all other troubleshooting has failed. Since the 8310 is a relatively new device it already has the latest features available.


When upgrading the OS there is the potential of losing all your data so make a backup first. When everything works properly all your data and applications are restored to the updated device. You can download the OS for AT&T devices from the BlackBerry website
