BlackBerry users of the Bold 9700 might want to plug their phones into their home computers and check the Desktop manager as it is confirmed that an official update of the OS has finally been released.
Version 188.8.131.526 is now available on the airwaves, and can be installed via the Desktop Manager which comes with your BlackBerry software, or on the Internet.
Previously, a leaked version of the same OS was released, but as we informed, this was in no way an official release from RIM. So if you have been holding back on updating your phone software, now is the time to do so.
Updating your OS is good practice, as it irons out issues, bugs and problems with the current version. I have just updated my phone’s software using the Desktop Manager, and was pleased to find out that the application automatically backs up your data, and restores it after the update has been completed.
If you are one of the many BlackBerry users who updated their OS, please inform us of any problems, issues or improvements you run into while using your phone.
