How to Update BlackBerry OS Software
If you don’t have BB Desktop, get it! Use it to sync your Outlook Calendar and contacts, back up your device, sync music and videos… and most importantly… Update your device. NOTE: This is a 200 MB download, and may take a while depending on your internet speed.
You will see a dropdown menu of all devices that have software updates. Select your device, and then download the latest software. The newest will always be at the top. NOTE: This is around 100 MB, and may take a while to download depending on your internet speed.
Step 3: Install.
Install BlackBerry Desktop software. Install BlackBerry software update. NOTE: the BB software update will install, and you will not see where it went… It’s like it magically disappears. However, it will be there in the next step.
Step 4: Hook up your BlackBerry to your computer with USB cable.
BlackBerry Desktop will open, and recognize your device. Black up your device. Then look for the star (red astrick) next to your software version that says update available. Click that. Then, update your device!
