so trying to upgrade my bold 9000 to os 5.0,

i'm currently running v4.6.0.247, and using the blackberry website it refuses to let me do the simple upgrade, has anyone managed to upgrade thru the BB website?

I really really dont want to upgrade the hard way, any help would be great


edit, dont worry, been doing it the hard way (the only down side to bb's, long fucked up upgrades)

your best bet here is to get the upgrade from your provider, EG. Telstra or whomever.
go here and do some searching they know everything and provide links, that's how i did mine

Pretty sure the carrier info is just a file and you can just remove this file and upgrade using the desktop manager?

Touche!

I have an iPhone and recently work gave me a Blackberry. I was shocked by how much of a piece of shit the BB is in comparison. I think it's a Bold 9000 - is this just the super crap version of BBs or are they all this....1990ish? I don't bother using it now...I'd rather pay for my work calls than lug that sack of shit around.

while the bold 9000 isn't as flash as an iphone, i wouldn't call an iphone 4 an upgrage

the reception of the bold 9000 is the best out of any smart phone, bar none, (even with the silly cases on the iphone 4), something that it worth far more than pretty looks for me

it fits in a suit pocket wonderfully,

the call quality is great, and pretty sure the call/data security on blackberry is still something other makers would like to have

i dont like the idea of being raped on data, i get unlimited data, and emails without paying an arm and a leg,

so while an upgrade in form, i would loss function, and features are about the even (plus and minuses for both)

coochie, try a phone from the 90's, and be honest, the BB's are nothing like them, then try a iphone from 2008, you'll find yourself prefering the bold for anything like medium to heavy use

anyway bold is upgraded, and this isn't a thread about fanboi's and fashion vs form and function

In QGL the only thing everyone seems to agree on is that phones threads are ALWAYS about everyone is wrong.
Grzz for figuring out your own solution.
