In order to get the most out of your BlackBerry® smartphone experience, I highly recommend making sure your device software is up-to-date. In this post, I’ll be specifically talking about how to update the BlackBerry® Torch™ 9800 smartphone, but the steps below can be used to upgrade other BlackBerry smartphones as well. Let’s get started!

    I’m trying to update my software on my blackberry bold 9000, but I’m having a problem. When I go to advanced options it dosn’t come up with the “wireless upgrade” option, can someone help me?!?

      Try to go through the following clean application load process: Also make sure you test before restoring any backup.

      Thank you

    I’ve been with T-Mobile in the UK for years. They told me that I woulod be able to upgrade my Blackberry to the Torch when it comes out. Its out now and when I phoned up they told me that T-mobile has no intention of having the Torch as one of their products. Really annoying as one of the reasons I went with new contract was on that basis. I now have to mess about changing from T-mobile because they aren’t doing the Torch. Can someone let me know why T-mobile has taken this strategy. T-mobile tech support, customer services and the various shops all seem confused.

    Have you given it a try? Tech support would not have the exact info you need when it comes to these specific details. They probably only know the main product functions. Give it a try, it might work!

    I have seen this option for a long time and finally I got it working recently (maybe in Oct/Nov, 10). I forgot which BB I was testing but I remember it worked *surprisingly* well!
