Verizon BlackBerry Tour/Bold get OS 5.0.0.975 – Curve 8530 gets OS 5.0.0.973

latest blackberry software Those promised Verizon OS updates were released over the weekend bringing these devices to:

  • BlackBerry Bold 9650 to OS 5.0.0.975
  • BlackBerry Tour 9630 to OS 5.0.0.975
  • BlackBerry Curve 8530 to OS 5.0.0.973

I am not sure what made Verizon release these updates but it could be they just had them in the pipeline. Hopefully they will be rolling out BlackBerry 6 for the Bold 9650 and Curve 9330 soon… Though rumors still peg it for early 2011.

You can pick up the updates at this link. If Verizon is not your carrier just use the phone number 111-111-1111 to download. If you want to do the update OTA they are available and even seem to work for some BES users which is news to me.

  1. Ha! I’ve been running a leaked version of this for my USCC Tour for almost a month. Good Job VZW!

  2. This is a pretty hefty upgrade numerically for the Tour and since we aren’t getting BlackBerry 6 this is likely the end of the line.

  3. Not according to what we hear from RIM Desiree. Bold 9650 yes, Tour 9630 no.

  4. I have a BlackBerry Bold 9650 OS 5.0.0.975 and it doesn’t work with KIK instant messaging latest version. My BB got wiped. I re-booted and to my surprise it worked with KIK. I then restored my BB and it still worked. I think I said “Yes” to download the newest version of KIK (thought I was already running it). I wasn’t paying too much attention, but KIK doesn’t work now. It displays the message “This application is not available on your device or for your carrier”.

    Tried to contact KIK Tech support on their web site, but their web site errored out when I clicked on the Send button (You get what you pay for).
