Updating blackberry bold os

A free Black Berry operating system upgrade is available to any Videotron subscriber with a Black Berry Bold 9700 device.

What follows is our step-by-step guide on how to upgrade your Black Berry's OS, or install a different version, as well as how to prepare beforehand to make the process run as smoothly as possible.

To start a new operating system install, you'll need your Black Berry, an Internet-connected PC, a USB cable and about an hour and half of free time—50 minutes or an hour for the upgrade process and 30 minutes or catch-up time afterwards.

Confirm your choice of options before proceeding with installation of the upgrade.

Research In Motion (RIM) is constantly developing and testing new software and applications for your Black Berry.

Keeping up to date with the newest operating system (OS) software for your smartphone ensures that you have access to all the latest and greatest features and performance tweaks.

With the official release of Black Berry OS v4.5 on the horizon—various beta, or test, versions of the software are already bouncing around the Web—we thought this would be a great time for a Black Berry OS tutorial.

Should you unplug or cancel the update process before completion, your smartphone may be unusable and you may need to restart the update process to regain use of your device.
