Default OS update

Please Login to Remove!

Ok so I want to download facebook for my blackberry 8520. So I tried it and It said I can't because I have 0S6 and I need to upgrade it. Now first of all I have no idea what OS is and secondly I need to know how to upgrade it! How do I go about doing so?! I'm a little blonde when it comes to these things, so pls keep it sweet and simple. Thanx!

OS is the operating system.

Do you have a BlackBerry data plan?

How are you trying to download the facebook app?

Can be BIS. Is that what you have? Try using app world to download the RIM Facebook app.

That should serve up the version of the facebook app that you need.

I would hold off upgrading the OS unless or until you have a reason. If you are comfortable upgrading and downgrading there this won't be any harm seeing if the grass is really greener.

The 8500 series cannot run OS 6. Not enough memory or processor power.
