On your BB, go to Options>About or hold ALT and type RACE and it will be displayed.
How do I know what OS version I have?
or you can hold alt,cap,h
No it doesn't....
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)
v220.127.116.11 (Platform 18.104.22.168)
the v22.214.171.124 is the os version number and in a lot of cases is abbreviated to the last set of numbers ex:
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.

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:
