    hi i am a new member to this community and i am glad that i come across this page it has helped me alot in the past with my new pearl.

    well to start with the question i see there are people that update their os and all that i am on rogers i have white blackberry pearl and i dont know how to check what os do i got and should i update it.


    most reason that i want to do i see it improves the battery life which is awsome and what i need so if anyone has some time to post me a small guide on how what and where i would appriciate it.


    sorry for any troubles with my english its my third language

    hi makija - welcome to the stacks

    to check your current OS, go to options/about
    it will be the third line down. first set of digits is the OS version, second set is the platform version

    for ex. mine says v4.2.1.66 (Platform 2.3.0.57)

    Re: new os

    you should always perform a backup before loading an OS. that can be done in DM. then once you are done, you can do a restore

    the OS you are running is slower and has some memory dump issues. it will start dumping call logs and messages sooner than later.
