*Update: Looks like this may be the case for Bold 9650 users as well. Make sure you're running the last official OS from Verizon and see if the update is available to you.

A few users have been reporting in today and it looks like OS 6 may be on the way down the pipeline from Verizon. Justin snagged us this screencap of his 9330 where it looks like OS 6.0.0.431 is available for an OTA update. Still no sign of OS 6 on Verizon's download site, but it's not unlike them to make the wireless update option available ahead of time. If you have a 9330 and are running an official OS, head to the wireless update option and let us know if it's showing for you. Thanks Justin!

This is now showing up on my Bold 9650 as a wireless update for 6.0.0.431.

My 9650 is running .732... update offered is for .975. Crap.

Anyone know if I need to upgrade to .975 to get OS6?

My Bold 9650 is showing a wireless update for 5.0.0.1006 as of 1 minute ago

VegasMike71

Mine too, OTA showing the same 5.0.0.1006 but the DM option is OS6.

Ebscer

Well this is good news...

xpanderx

yea its on my wireless update for my curve 9330! Im downloading OS 6 right now

geoffjphoto

you have to first update to 5.0.01006 OTA, then you should be able to get the OTA update for os6, but only after you first update to .1006, for the bold.

joshua.worth

Congrats Sticklers you finally have an official version of OS for your VZW berry's ;) enjoy. It is sweet.

pkcable

Those on 9650's will find a thread in the 9650 Forum called 431exe which has the full 431 DM install which you can install on your PC and then use DM or loader.exe to load on to your device.

I have .975 on my 9650 and it is giving me 5.0.0.1006 as an upgrage option

Cbarnes2479

Updating as I type now...... So after I update to 5.0.0.1006 I should be able to get 6.0?

mrttambur

The man........ The myth......... The legend........

And from GizmoFusion on Sunday. Good Job Lyricidal!

bbstorm2verizon

This is up on the Verizon Website for Bold 9650!

CHECK IT OUT!!!!

alexmarshall896

so if i update to .1006 then i can get the 6.0?

visortgw

Yes! I updated to OS v5.0.0.1006 OTA earlier today, and I am completing the OS v6 update as we speak.

CJG_NYC

Just another reason to absolutely hate verizon and my Tour. Its reasons like this that people shouldnt trust VZW enough to go out and buy an iPhone 4 next week. No doubt in my mind an iPhone 5 will be on VZW by years end and then you, like me with my Tour, will be screwed.

wolfstar

How are you screwed? Did someone from Verizon come out and stomp on your Tour? Whats wrong with it. Stop being a crybaby, grow up. Jesus.

CJG_NYC

Under a year after its release VZW pulls out the Bold 9650 which upgraded some of the most essential downfalls of the Tour 9630. To add insult to injury, OS updates are pushed to the Tour much slower than they are to Bold (if at all). No love for the early adopters.

dblockinit

confused how this vz's issue. should they just not make the hardware available? if rim releases a poor product in your eyes, what should vz do about it? all electronic devices are like this.

CASH

Stop putting question marks on things that are not questionable.

Itstakenovermylife

So since I'm running 6.0.0.333 on my 9650, the OTA won't tell me I'm ready for the update? Guess I should downgrade to 5.0...

willyboy6

Just look at the links Lyricidal posted above.........

breakmedown

Yet no 6.0 love for the 9300 from any American Carriers? What's up with that? If Verizon is ok with this release, how come the 9300 doesn't have a similarily sound release?

willyboy6

Do you want a better OS? I'll leak 9300 OS 6.0.0.448 if you really want it.... ;)

scuebydue

HaHa! Can't please them all.

lemoska

Curve 9330- showing it!

Stompy

Yup! Downloading right now for one of my users. He doesn't even know his blackberry has arrived yet, and he probably won't know it's different from all the others. :-)

LionOfJudah80

6.0.0.431 is available for download at www.vzam.net/blackberry - official Verizon release...

DarshOne

OTA updating to .1006, gonna look for 6.0 as soon as it finishes!

noTh1ng

no need to upgrade to .1006 first. just download os6 here: http://vzw.smithmicro.com/blackberry/

xxalejandre03

anyone else having the wait pop up every 2ish mins? i've been trying to download ota for EVER!!!! you would think waiting this long for the os6 to even be released i could wait for it to download; but i can't!!! :) oh, and are there other faster ways to download it? i have a mac so idk if that gives or takes away different downloading options..

bold1193

For some reason all the leaks for me have only given: 1.Auto 2. Closeup 3.Night 4.Text

harvey_spca

How exciting! I updated to 5.0.0.1006 and then right after I went to check anymore updates and the 6.0.0.431 showed up! I updated both and is awesome!

alexmarshall896

just finished installing. looking around... NO SOCIAL FEEDS APP and when i try to launch Facebook or Twitter it says I dont have a data plan, which i do...

brosie4

Can someone give me a hand? I'm running .975 and my phone is telling me there are no updates available. Any suggestions? Anyone have an OTA link for OS6?

dm3ready

I upgraded to .975 last night...then had to wait until this evening for .1006 to show up as the next update.
I'm in the process now...I'm guessing that I'll have to wait another day for 6.0 to become available.
Each update takes about 2 hours.

meljac600

i finally got it everything is running successfully..its like a whole new phone

alexmarshall896

have had the update for 2 hours now and still NO social feeds app.

embalmfirst

I didn't get the OTA is it because I'm running the leak .415 already??????

MarkInTombstone

OS 6 may be on the way down the pipeline from Verizon?

Like when? When my upgrade is available? By then, I'll get a new phone with OS6 already installed.

alexmarshall896

social feeds isn't included in the os update for my bold idk about everyone elses, but it shows social feeds in the preview for os 6 in...

http://support.vzw.com/pdf/system_update/bold.pdf

b.asagba

yes yes yes finally. literally checked every 30 min on the 19th. and then twice a day since. have a mac so OTA upgrade to .1006 then upgrade to 6.0

hbelkin

I have a LOT of 3rd party apps and use all of them.... anyone know offhand what the likelihood is that some will stop working on OS6? (I'm on 5.0.0.1005 Bold 9650) and I do see the OS6 upgrade option...

aron2

help how do i downgrade back to bb 5 i dont like 6 can someone please help me or send me a link

luniz911

To install Social Feeds, plug your phone into your computer and run the desktop manager. Click on applications and you can Install it from there... finally figured that out after 2 hours on app world :o)

IDmanURattn

I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE ITS REALLY HERE.....
ALMOST GAVE UP ON YOU VZW!!!
ALMOST......
AND NOW WE CAN USHER IN A WHOLE BUNCH OF NEW PROBLEMS WITH OS 6.
BUT WHO CARES....HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
I'M LOVIN IT.....
exaggerated...yes i know, i know

thomlalonde

My Bold 9650 upgraded to .333 and it crashes every time I lose signal - about four times a day. It requires a restart and then registering on the network. I'm quite close to going to an iPhone now that they are available on Verizon.

ORLANDOBUSA

I have a 9650 Verizon that I flashed to Metropc and working great but, I went to upgrade to OS6 and it keeps saying (This BlackBerry® Device Software upgrade includes new features and significant enhancements to the BlackBerry® solution and, as such, is only available to users with an active BlackBerry subscription. To learn more about BlackBerry® service, please visit www.blackberry.com/service). I already registered by HOST ROUTING TABLE. But Nothing gets updated!
How can we force it in so I can see if I get 4G now that Metropcs has 4G?
Thanks
