    Question Will there ever be an OS upgrade for the 8820/8830?

    Advertisement



    I really wonder.

    I'm trying to second guess the thinking at RIM or the service providers and all I can figure is that they are hoping that a lot of people will jump over to the Bold if they don't release an upgrade for these phones.

    I realize that a lot of the gains to be had with the new OS are related to camera/video which the 88xx series lacks but that doesn't explain why a version of 4.5 was released for the 8800.

    Thoughts? Inside info? Rumors?

    The 8820 OS is found here - later for the 8830.

    Dube, do you still have the .37 OS on your PC?

    Go to Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs (Programs and Features on Vista) and check for anything called BlackBerry Device Software.

    If you have two 4.5 OS's on the PC, that'll cause upgrade problems.

    I am so annoyed with the lack of 4.5 for the 8830. It's seriously the last 8xxx device not to get it, and the others have had it for a while.

    it works fine, but there are some slight issues with using it.

    My biggest issues is that there is a noticeable delay when answering incoming calls
    Also, I have issues getting some software because sprint's mobile websites sees my device as unknown (presumably from the different useragent string) UNTIL THEY UPDATE IT.
