There is a Sticky Thread in the General BlackBerry Discussion Forum which has the details.

This thread - http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...ps-tricks.html - has loads of great information, including info on upgrading your BB - BlackBerryOS 4.x Download FAQ - UPGRADE DOWNLOADS

Good luck!

Thanks for the link I am really looking for a how to on how to install the software from my desktop to the phone itself. Or do you just download it straight to the phone thru the browser?

I could swear that's in the threads. I know I've written it at least 20 times. Anyhow....

Download the latest version of the handheld OS to your desktop
Execute the program you just downloaded
Locate and delete VENDOR.XML on your PC C: drive
Restart Desktop Manager
