With a lot of the CrackBerry news as of late being focused on newly released and soon to be released devices, it's easy to forget that a lot of BlackBerry users out there are still waiting for official versions of the 4.5 OS to be launched. Before any of this Storm and Bold and Kickstart stuff even surfaced users concentrated on who had the latest 4.5 release, well... finally... I'm glad to say the search is coming to a close as more and more carriers quietly announce 4.5's availability. After the jump I've gathered up offical links for the latest in 4.5 OS versions for everyone. If you are having issues with updating your OS, you can always refer to the BlackBerry 101 on just how to do it. Don't forget, you can also visit BlackBerry.com/upgrades (need to use Internet Explorer) and follow the instructions on screen to find and install the latest officially available OS for your device.

Now I realize your specific carrier may not be listed as a download site and some prefer to use nothing but their carrier issued OS - it's a personal choice to wait or not. Use caution in making your descision to upgrade to an unsupported carriers OS. When in doubt, hit up the CrackBerry Forums to see what others are saying about their upgrade desicions.
