A mid-week treat for all you BlackBerry Bold 9900 users as Turkcell has released OS 7.0.0.540 for the BlackBerry Bold 9900. This is the latest official OS in what seems like a never ending supply from the carriers as of late. This one leaked previously and as we mentioned at the time, was likely to official soon and here it is. As always, use caution when installing any software on your device.

I installed the leak for this one. It is great! Everything is smooth and battery life is noticibly improved. I will be hanging on to this one for a while. 9930 is coming soon I'm sure!

Anyone else waiting for the T-Mobile update and throws a fit everytime some other carrior gets an update out . . .

Because they don't particularly need to spend the money on updates in order to compete.

It's the same reason Bell and Telus do the same.

I installed the leaked version and it's very good. Seems a lot more snappier and quicker all round. Also the battery is much improved.

P.s... Tired of waiting for Telus for updates. I wish these updates came OTA instead of these stupid carriers.

you don't need an update from Telus, in fact canadian carriers are very slow in releasing updates or they don't.
Just delete the Vendor.xml and you are good to go.
I am on Telus too, but i never use their updates

The UI is much smoother but I am beginning to realize this phone is a dud in spite of the great looks and fantastic keypad.

I have always had 5 bars with ATT. I still get 5 bars with the 9900. 4G+5 bars and I can't watch a youtube video without buffering.

It's going on 2012 and this is supposed to be the best phone RIM makes and I can't even watch a 2 minute YouTube video without the phone stopping 3 or 4 times to drop a few friends off at the lake. .440, .474, .503, .540, it makes no difference. Sure you get a few bug fixes but does the phone "Really get USABLE"??? Or do I just sit and wait for some morons over at RIM to "Finish My Product" that I pay for each month?

WTH

I get your pain but I don't get the same problems. Why would that be? I find the phone a marvel and I am so glad that I bought it over other ones. I don't understand why other users don't get the same experience.

I agree with you 100%. I foolishly wasted my upgrade on this phone and truly truly regret it. This phone is worthless...no kindle, no audible, not even the FULL version of amazonMP3, no espn, cnn..and non of them care. A collection of the most useless apps on the planet. As a bonus I'm terrified everytime my phone get too low on battery because that seems like a link to the infamous "bricking" problem. Don't get me started on the lack of wifi calling and mobile hotspot. This phone is a joke.
Bottom line...if you not a BES customer forced to use this garbage phone for a high paying job...get an android or iphone...even windows phone is better.

ok, so I may be a bit behind in the times.....why do I keep downloading an .rar file? I get that from the megu download...the rim download keeps giving me errors when the wizard starts up.....

sorry to post this but i cant get this one to run after i delete th vendor file and start up the loader it doesn't find the os and i dont know where it went. i ve done a ton of these and they usually work for me please help

Can Someone help me? When I download this OS, how do I link it with im uploading it to my BB? I am doing a reload, because my current bold 9900 is "Nuked"

Where is the option to select this operating system when I upload it?

Please any help?

Download this file and then open desktop manager in windows, you will see the list of OS to install in your blackberry.

Can I this OS in any carrier.

I am in Mexico with telcel is it safe to install this OS?

Downloaded & installed this tonight. Its been amazing so far. Much more snappier & battery life is way better so far. Its highly recommended
