Not required, it's up to you. If you have an issue or glitch in your current OS that you think this might improve on, go for it.

I think the main question here is is this a major upgrade? For instance, is this the one that gives us Word to go? Any major differences between 4.5 and 4.3?

This will give you Documents To Go, as well as HTML e-mail capabilities.

you only need an activation password if youre activating ota. plug in to a desktop that has an outlook profile that connects to your company mail server and DM will activate your bb on the bes

Hello everyone! I decided to join, since I now have a 8330.
I understand the Upgrade process and how to do it. I just have a few questions.
1-Deleting the XML file allows the phone to use any carrier, right?
2-Will Verizon be able to know that I upgraded?
3-Will I lose any features on the phone or on the Verizon Network?
I guess I am just worried about after effects on what will happen, I am new to the Blackberry scene and just was not really sure about it all. Thanks for the help!

1. Deleting the XML file allows the OS to be installed on any carrier's phone.
2. Yes, but they don't care. There's nothing in the contract that says that you have to use the version of the OS it came with or their "approved" versions. That said, if you contact support about an issue, they may not support it because of the OS, but you can just downgrade back to their version and they will support that.
3. No. That same creepy "can you hear me now guy" follows me around everywhere no matter what version I'm on.

The 4.5 is a worthwhile upgrade because you get HTML e-mails, DocsToGo, and depending on if you're using it on a BES, a host of other neat features. Go for.

I'm still rockin' Beta 4.5.0.66 (90)......can anyone tell me if this is worth the upgrade because what I have now is quite stable and I have no messenger issues, no media player issues and no lag time sending sms. Thanks!

Can somebody chime in here and let us know if they get HTML emails if they are on Verizon? That seems to be the only desirable feature to me.

As you all can tell, I am kind of apprehensive-before following through on the update, I see the message on the software:
"Warning: After completing the loading operation, you must active your device wirelessly to continue to send and receive messages and use other BlackBerry services. If you do not want to..."

I don't understand this little deal here, what do they mean?

I am on BIS with Verizon.

This works great on the Verizon 8330 Curve. No issues at all.

Sorry to hear that. The same thing happened to me when I "upgraded" to the previous 4.5 release that was posted here, and I ended up "downgrading" to 4.3 right away. My hope is that whenever Sprint does come around to releasing it's own version of 4.5, that it will keep the force roaming option.

I upgraded to os 4.5.0.77 in an effort to get Documents to go but after going through the lengthy process I found that it didn't even install Documents to Go. It was not even one of the options when it shows you the applications you can install on your BB. Can anyone help. I am with Bell Mobility.

Welcome to the BBForums.

Did you do any editing of the contents of the java folder? DocumentsToGo is included in this release.

I'm sorry if I sound stupid but I am new to all of this. I didn't make any changes to the file, installed it as it was when it was downloaded.

I upgraded yesterday afternoon and it took about 40 minutes total. I had to resend the service books to get HTML email and it worked as I wasn't seeing the "Enable HTML Email" in the Email settings menu. But not all images are always downloaded, you have to select "Get Images" in order to see them. I'm on a BIS with Verizon and followed all the instructions to the letter. Web surfing seems to work better too.
