when I attempt to download the os the download times out. sometimes it says it actually is finished but i run it and find out that it only downloaded like 850k's of the software. I'm using vista so maybe thats an issue. I have no idea why this wont work, been trying all weekend.

What I will do is host it on my web server when I get home, and you can try it from there. Should be about 30-45 minutes.

I have placed the file there. You can get it by going to:

It may not be you, the BlackBerry download site is usually pretty slow in general. Think it took me 4+ hours to get one of the BES service packs at a whopping 35kb download speed.
