so trying to upgrade my bold 9000 to os 5.0,
i'm currently running v188.8.131.52, 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 f***ed up upgrades)
crazymorton, trouble is that while i am on telstra, i have the very first batch of bold 9000's, which were on 3, and three isn't releasing os 5,
i did it the old school long way, (telstra rom, and rooted in there)
to update blackberry, go to apple shop and buy an iphone =)

I have an iPhone and recently work gave me a Blackberry. I was shocked by how much of a piece of s*** 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 s*** 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

Grzz for figuring out your own solution.
