AT&T Releases Bold OS Bug Fix Update – Visual Voicemail Back!

att-boldAT&T released OS awhile ago for the Bold and then quickly yanked it after it caused issues with their network and other problems. Now they have released the same exact OS version with a new maintenance release bundle 517 compared to the older 508.

You can pick it up at but an OTA OS upgrade should also work.

Thanks to panpan1975 for the tip!

From the email AT&T sent out:

NEW BlackBerry Bold Maintenance Release v4.6.0.517 now available
BlackBerry Bold Maintenance Release bundle version (comprising application version v4.6.0.297 and platform version is now available for customers to download.  Bundle 517 contains all the functionality of the recently-removed bundle 508, but addresses the software issue affecting the interaction between the device and network enhancements being deployed.  There are no additional changes in bundle 517 (as compared to earlier BlackBerry Bold MR bundle 508) other than addressing the software issue.  For a review of the added functionality contained in this release, please see the original communications for BlackBerry Bold Maintenance Release.

  1. Downloading as we speak…hope this one is worth while.

  2. Hi – great article – but could you please offer link in the description of how a BES admin can push OTA.
    “Over-the-air delivery via OTASL (For information see “FOTA For BES Administrators” on the BlackBerry Enterprise Product Page in OIL) ” would be more helpful is a clickable link was included as it was for the straight download option below that included a link.
    THANKS for good info!!!!!!!
