T-Mobile Official OS 6.0 For The 9700

Many carriers have officially released OS 6.0 for most devices the latest one to officially bless the 9700 with OS 6.0 is T-Mobile USA. The software has to be updated when you plug your 9700 to your pc via USB cable and launching desktop manager. If the OS is available for you it will prompt  you to upgrade to v6.0.0.448. That is one of the versions that was leaked a while ago but if you been waiting for the official version plug your device to desktop manger. I was able to grab the screenshot when I plugged mine into the pc. Thanks to Tashana for the tip. This is an official OS but the warning still applies always do a backup before any upgrades.

There is no official word from T-mobile but it looks like it will be official soon.

Update looks like I forgot that I had loaded .461. One of our readers pointed out that the update is actually .448 not .461

  1. Are you sure its I updated my T-Mobile 9700 and I only have . . .

  2. You are correct, just upgraded to OS 6 Device software on my BB Bold 9700 / T-Mobile using Blackberry Desktop Manager 6. Awesome!!

  3. OS 6 Device software seems to be working perfectly on BB Bold 9700 on T-Mobile as of 3-4-11 @ 6:26pm PST.

  4. Yeah mine said .448 sadly, but it weill have to do for now!

  5. That would explain why DM said 6.0 was available when I sync’ed yesterday, but T-mo’s website still only had 5.0.0.something.

  6. This is promising. Hopefully other carriers follow suit, but I’m not expecting much. Rogers?

  7. For sure, other carriers will follow. I’m a happy cust at Videotron and waiting with a lot of impatience

  8. Are only the tech whiz winning the PB contests? Maybe one day for me

  9. I didnt want to post this here, please excuse

  10. Good! It’s about time TMO did this! I have been running OS6 on my 9700 since November with very few issues.

  11. I just tried to upgrade to the OS 6 software via  desktop manager and it said my current OS 5 is the most recent software available. Any ideas on how to remedy that and get the OS 6 software?

  12. The update is only with desktop manager, cause I dont see the update download in t-mobile wesite.


  13. Yes, I tried to get the update via the desktop manager but it did not give me any options to upgrade to any version of the OS 6 software. Any other ideas?

  14. the update was pulled back for some odd reason not sure why most likely it was released by accident and the people that got it were lucky
