firstly, the OS for your device can be found in the stickied thread in the device forum for your device.

Secondly, easiest way to know if its compatible is to try and download it!

Yes, it will work on your device, it just requries that OS 4.5 or higher be installed on it.

You can download it by going to from your device browser.

Don't download anything unless you've done research on it. "Just try it" will mess it up... Your old BBM will be deleted, and the new one will be installed but not found anywhere on the device...If your OS is below it will not work. Unless you do some modifications..Either way, make sure you have a backup file FIRST..As far as the latest OS for your curve, keeps up with the new updates pretty good..Hope this helps.
