upgrade OS on carrier locked phone

I am having a blackberry bold 9700 carrier locked phone. It came with OS 5, now i want to upgrade the OS to V6. My question is will it allow me to upgrade the OS to V6?. I have seen OS6 from the same carrier on blackberry software download section which i prefer to use. If it allows, should i delete vendor.xml file?

Re: upgrade OS on carrier locked phone

It should allow you to upgrade to OS. You'll have to delete vendor.xml file if the OS you're trying to install other carriers OS.
