Default OS Update without PC

Please Login to Remove!

Is it possible to update the OS without a computer. My USB ports are flakey and don't always work.

At the moment, no. Maybe someday via OTA.

If you are referring to the USB ports on your PC and not the phone - may I ask if you are using the front mounted USB port(s)? Not less than 1 hour ago I had someone ask me the same question in a chatroom and he was trying the USB ports on the front of his case. I suggested he plug into the back USB port(s) and instantly his problems were solved! (I take no credit for this tip as I found it from one of the BlackBerry experts on this very site)...
