Default Why does BB send 5+GB of data *somewhere* when updating OS?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm updating my old BB flip 9670 from V.5 to V6. and I see it has uploaded over 5GB of data to some server somewhere!

So what parts of my data are being uploaded, why, and to where exactly!?

I've never seen any other piece of software upload anything like that much data when updating or installing.

Something smells about this!

(And I fail to see why this process needs to be so ssssllllooooowwww as well; this isn't the command module for the space shuttle FFS.)

Why do I think you think your reporting a problem to Blackberry.

To help, more info is needed on exactly how your doing the update. Generally when a BB is updated it makes a copy of the old data and reloads it back when done. Without knowing mode detail it is hard to offer info.
If someone helps, tell them by clicking the Thanks button
