    BB Newbie here.
    I keep seeing OS everywhere. Is that my Desktop Manager or something else I need to install on my computer?

    I apologize in advance for my ignorance.

    russetts, welcome to pinstack!

    the OS, or Operating System, needs to be loaded onto your PC to be able to load apps/themes using DM. it isn't on the disk that came with your BB.

    in addition, the OS can be upgraded based on carrier releases.

    what bb do you have? you can find out what OS you are running by going to options/about .. its the third line down.

    here is a list of the newest available OS's, by device.

    well, if you are running 4.3.0.66 and you install 4.3.0.66 then you will be good to go

    if you are running something lower, and you want to update, then make sure to follow these directions

    Welcome my friend. The OS is the operating system of your phone.. Basically is what makes your phone work. You probably hear it mention a lot because some applications may or may not work the same from one to another much like in a computer. Hope that little info was helpful. Take care. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
