If you are among those grabbing a BlackBerry Torch, you might wanna make sure you download this as well just so that you have it handy. AT&T has posted up the official OS OS download for the BlackBerry Torch 9800. You can download it via the AT&T BlackBerry software page.



I can't wait for a OS 6 for the 9700


An official upgrade, for a phone that hasnt been out a week. Thats very diligent!

Actually, it's the same OS that is launching on the phone. I know because I bought one today :D


...then I realize that it's only for the Torch.



I saw this tweet when I woke up this morning and I swear my heart skipped a beat, then I saw it was for the 9800. C'mon RIM where's the 9650 love!


Indeed it is very nice they put this update, I will try it once I get home.


must have been a buggy shipment for RIM not to spell AT and T right 9800E_PBr6.0.0_rel278_PL6.4.0.64_A6.0.0.141_AT_amp_T.exe so the update got push fast.


I'm pretty sure "amp" is an abbreviation for ampersand.


could be but looks fun when i first look at it


Now all eyes on the torch and off the other BBs.


I can't wait til they release os 6 for the BlackBerry Bold. geez i'm tired of waiting!


like working class said, this is a hard copy incase you need to format or reinstall or got another phone, just for ER is great. so far so good, i just enjoy the feeds on OS 6


I've actually download the OS 6.0 theme(first theme i tried) and its pretty cool, i'm diggin the new layout and setup. Can't wait til they come out with an upgrade so my 9700 can be official.


What about the Bold 9650? I want BB OS6...


roll it out rim, 9650 and others! NOW


Holding up the OS can be so disappointing


wasn't this OS supposed to be around 256mb? or is the downloadable file compressed to more than half its size?
Seeing it as it is, it gives me hopes as to how much memory it'll use in my BB 9700 :D


Hello, I also want the OS 6 for 9700, or the Torch for T-Mobile, I found a petition for this on internet, apparently it needs 10000 signatures and it has less than 200, anyone knows is this type of petitions work? Thanks and have a great day


The company looks at it. Laughs. And then waits for you to buy their newest product.


research in motion you are pathetic, no update for older devices makes me physically sick, the torch is bollox, you are bollox, iphone came today its amazing, get with the times RIM you are way behind everybody else! bb6 is absolutle shite! just quit trading you just aint got it anymore! goodbye RIM you have lost a valued customer! iphone all the way! i pity all you blackberry users, you are essentially prehistoric! losers!!!!


Go have fun with your nothing but a TOY phone kid! Hey, they have an ABC app for the iPhart, did you get it yet?


i almost feel offended by that...............LOL


If this will improve performance. They should apply this to the demo models at the AT&T stores.


So you can figure out what most people who know how to read already know... THIS IS THE OFFICIAL *LAUNCH OS!!!!


i am so jealous...i want BB 6.0
if i cant have it, I am going for a DROID X


you know... 99% of the people complaining and saying they're jumping boat are jealous, just like you... seems like no one wants to feel someone else got something better than them... so they QQ and complain and BS... people are soooo lame and pathetic sometimes...


I would like to read meaningful posts.... This is the official launchOS not an update Bla1ze was clear about that... Let's keep it smart here in the smartphone world


That's great new for them. But what about the rest of us whose phones are OS6 ready? How long do we have to wait for the latest? They tell us our devices are ready to rock the latest OS, but not just yet. That's right RIM, sell the new device and forget those who've already invested money in your products. Great customer relations policy. You're no different from the rest of the manufacturers who only think about the profits. Forget about those who are loyal to your product line. Keep that mindset and you won't have much of a profit to worry about. So how long do we wait for OS6? Are you throwing darts at a calendar or what?


I got my Torch yesterday morning and it came with installed already...


Well that's good because that's what everyone else's came with too. TThis is here for those of us that might switch OS or we brick our phone and want to reload the original OS or just for our OS collection. Pay attention!


Clever how they don't provide an installer for OS X but perhaps I am missing it.


prehistoric! losers because of a CELL PHONE..child please


This OS was released for users like me who made a mistake and deleted facebook or other apps off of the phone. You can even get the right app in the app world so download the OS all torch users incase you loose something


that os 6 starts off at and is a brand new os where as most official os5.0 versions are like where as it is basically the same as 4.6!

seems they took lot less time getting this os right and so hopefully we wont see too many unnecessary updates when it comes out for the other devices!

getting sick of upgrading os every month when new one leaks lol

So I can't download this OS 6 link on my Blackberry Bold 9700? Would it not work or not be capatable?
