1. Using Your BlackBerry > 20. Upgrade Your Handheld Software

Upgrade Your Handheld Software

Find the latest version of your device’s system software and install it.

Changes and new features are added to the system software by RIM at a pretty decent clip. RIM is constantly looking to fix bugs in the handheld code no matter how infrequently they crop up. Once RIM produces a new version of the handheld code, it does take a while to filter down to new handhelds, so you may find that your handheld software on your device is already a revision or two behind even shortly after you buy it.

The good news is that you can find and install the latest handheld code free of charge. Because the wireless carriers’ infrastructures vary, there are versions of the handheld software per carrier. So if you use a device from Cingular, you need to monitor the Cingular download area of BlackBerry’s web site for code for your device.
