    On your BB, go to Options>About or hold ALT and type RACE and it will be displayed.

    it's usually the 3rd line down on the about screen, it should be the first number with the v before it for example here is mine:

    Blackberry TM 8100
    Wireless Handheld (EDGE)
    v4.2.1.107 (Platform 2.3.0.83)


    the v4.2.1.107 is the os version number and in a lot of cases is abbreviated to the last set of numbers ex:
    .107


    Now you may see a lot of threads that mention the 4.3 or 4.5 os. that is referring to the first 2 set of numbers in the os version. The 4.3 and 4.5 that I mentioned earlier are a fairly big deal because they represent massive improvements for us standard 8100 users that the 8120 and 8130 users have the majority of updates already.

    Here's a list of new OS updates for the pearl, it's listed by carrier:

    Do you have the Blackberry Desktop Manager on your PC? It should be downloaded before the device OS if you don't have it, here's a link just in case:
