Default OS 5 for 9780

Please Login to Remove!

I have been using a 9700 as my work blackberry happily for over a year. However, I've recently moved jobs and have been given a 9780 with OS6.

I would like to move back to OS 5 as I am more familiar with it and all the shortcuts I've learned over many years etc.

Can it be done? Did Blackberry ever release OS5 for 9780 - or is OS6 my only option?

No, there is no OS5 for your new device. What you could do, is look for a theme that looks and feels like OS 5.

I feel your pain.
OS6 just fits so bad on 9700/9780/9300 phones :'(

9700/9300 owners can revert back to OS5, but on 9780, you're doomed.

It might be possible to combine 9780 firmware with 9700/OS5 apps, but that seems highly hazardous.

Too bad, OS5 would fly with the extra memory from 9780. :-/
