View Full Version : 8700 software troubles

11-03-2008, 01:44 AM
I recently bought an 8700 on eBay and have really enjoyed it so far. However, the OS loaded on the phone is outdated so I want to update that. Also I'd like to load a few applications/games, too.

I've installed the Blackberry Desktop Manager (and, god, what a hassle that was) and it fails to recognize the phone. No matter what I do, it doesn't show up. Could it be because the phone was unlocked? Am I missing some important software?

Many thanks!
