Upgrading Your Device to the Latest BlackBerry OS

If you purchased a 7100 device that shipped with a version of the BlackBerry operating system (OS) older than 4.0, it's important for you to upgrade the OS to 4.0 because that is the major release of the OS currently supported by RIM. If you aren't sure which version OS your device has, follow these steps to find out:

1.
Open the Tools Screen

Scroll to the Tools icon on the Home screen and click the trackwheel. The Tools screen appears, offering a list of tool options.

2.
Open the Settings Screen

Scroll to the Settings icon and click the trackwheel. A list of options for which you can change the settings appears.

3.
Open the About Screen

Scroll to the About option in the list of settings and click the trackwheel. The About screen opens, which shows a great deal of information about the system software installed on your device.

4.
Check the Version Number of the OS

Near the top of the About screen you'll see a line that shows the version of the BlackBerry OS. Check whether the first number in the version is 4, which indicates that you have version 4.0 of the OS. If the number is 3, it means you probably need to upgrade to get the latest and greatest BlackBerry OS.
