I clearly have the right 4.6 OS. I get an email though saying here is an update, NOT TO 4.6, but for 4.6. so I tried to install it.

Here is the email

I tried to install it by clicking their links and I get an error message that says it cannot be installed because I am on a BES and/or have Professional software installed. Neither of which is true. RIM went thru and checked for desktop in service books etc and verified I do not have a BES. I am not even working now.

Any idea why I got the error. RIM guy and I thought two things . The email was sent in error and that is the random messed up error cause I am trying to install it over the one I got from the faulty online loader.

I got the updated one from Tmo and reinstalled it over what I have just to make sure all is OK but any ideas?

thanks

thanks all. def wouldn't try to download an update from phone. And I too thought it was the loader problem that the link took me too.

so I made sure my app loader was up to date, then downloaded the newest OS from Tmo just for shits and giggles, which I already had

I surmise what I originally did..it is just because it is trying to install the same one.

thanks again
