Default BB upgrade to Version 5 help

Please Login to Remove!

My husband and I bought two new BB Curve 8520s about a year ago and my phone has allowed updates to version 5 software but my husbands phone won't update. It keeps saying that it's only available to those with an active BB subcription.

What i don't understand is why one phone allowed the upgrade but the other didn't and is stuck with version 4.6.

The only difference between the two is that when the boxes were opened, my phone had a new sim card and i used that one, but the sim card for my husbands phone was missing so he used his existing sim.

Both phones were registered with orange at the same time but that's about the only difference.

Can anyone shed any light on why one phone allows the upgrade and the other doesn't?

Please do not double post. Once is enough. Your second thread has been deleted.

Does he have a BB data plan on that account? That message typically means no BB dataplan or bolt on has been detected.
