BlackBerry OS 5.0, 6.0, 7.0 Download and How to Upgrade.

BlackBerry by Research In Motion

I Don't own a Blackberry Device but for some weird reason, people run to my Office for Blackberry OS Upgrades, Problems with booting and App needs. And i resolve them with all pleasure.. (For a Token.)

This morning (7AM) i got called to the office for one of such BB OS upgrade issues... I wrote about it once on Ngbuzz, but for the purpose of rekindling this OLD Blog, I'll state the steps again...

Do i Need to Upgrade My BlackBerry OS?
You might have purchased Your blackberry device with 5.0 OS or Lower. Research In Motion or RIM as they're popularly called may have released a new and higher version of your Blackberry OS with better security, Faster memory and process management etc

Your Blackberry Device works perfectly without upgrading to the New version; But geeks and techies feel cheated. They want the New version immediately it's released.
So, its a matter of choice

NOTE: OS = Operating system: The Main Software upon which all others are built. It serves as an Interface(GUI) between you and the Hardware. Uses: File Management, Security authentication, Network management and whatever they (RIM) put in it.

BlackBerry OS 5.0, 6.0, 7.0 Upgrade requirements:
  1. Install the most recent version of BlackBerry Desktop Manager Software. (Download)
  2. Use the Desktop Manager to Backup all You data
