Question VZW 8830 Software Update? (Sorry i'm a newb)

Please Login to Remove!

First off let me apologize for my first post being a question like this.

I would like to update my VZW 8830. The only software update i've done with my blackberry is with official software releases. How do I get the most up to date beta version for the Verizon 8830? Will it work domestically and overseas? What is the process once I find and download the software to load it onto my blackberry? How do I move certain files over (I see that to avoid certain bugs, certain files need to be moved)? Can someone explain this to me as if it were a dummy's guide to updating your vzw 8830?

Thank you,

100% Green

Check out the 8800 Fourm. Although there is no offical release of OS 4.5 for the 8830 yet. General 8800 Series Discussion - : Your Number One BlackBerry Community

Moved to the 8800 Forum.
