Dear danzig and JSanders - The link for my 8530 does not work. After I select Sprint L.P. and in the next page select my 8530, I get this:
* Sorry, Your session has expired. Please close your browser and try again or re-enter from the link in which you were provided."
FYI - I have a corporate Blackberry, model 8530 (CDMA, WiFi) on the Verizon network. It links to my email at my company, which I guess (??) is a Blackberry server. I do NOT use this BB for telephone - it has the telephone function, but it will not make or receive calls. (But it will play audio attachments in emails, and I also use its browser.) The full specs follow. I am curious what would be the pro's and con's of installing the new OS - your thoughts, please.
