    It may be that there is no 4.5 release available from your carrier yet. But you can install the OS from any carrier as long as it's meant for your device and you delete the vendor .xml file. Read through the instructions carefully.

    Find a 4.5 for your device here: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ll_models.html

    upgrade instructions here: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...support-76342/

    Also please fill out your profile with device/os/carrier info so we can better assist you.

    Just read the instructions carefully, do a backup first, and the only "do not" is DO NOT disturb your BB while it is in the upgrade process. It can take a while. It may say connecting to device for 20-30 minutes or longer and look like nothing's happening, but it is, just let it do it's thing, don't push buttons and don't disconnect it from the computer or bump/dislodge/disconnect the usb until the process is complete.

    Follow this link and get the one for Bell Mobility, it's actually a higher version than the Cellular South one

    haha, found it and moved it

    In regards to your question, yes once you download and run/install the new 4.5 handheld device software to your computer and delete the vendor .xml file, the DM should notice the upgrade

    Right now the download link for Cellular south has 4.5.0.66 so maybe they pulled .77

    Hey azstar.. Once again thank you for helping me upgrade my 8130 whenever I had it! Now I have the 8310. Thanks to you =) I upgraded to 4.5 myself.. but.. I have 4.5.0.77... Any theme that I have has the same font on the message screen and the time. I did not delete the vendor file out because I have Cellular South and downloaded the cellular south one.... Should I go ahead and downgrade to 4.5.0.66 and delete the file? Or should I just leave everything alone?
