The new Blackberry Messenger does not support the .77 version. There is another version that was released for the 8330 that will put you at .138. At that point you'll be able to download the new BBM.
To update your Blackberry you can just open Desktop Manager and sync your phone and it should recognize the new update available.
I am trying to upgrade my blackberry as well, especially Blackberry Messenger. Here is my device info:
Blackberry Curve 8330
Version: 22.214.171.124 (Platform 126.96.36.199
Blackberry Messenger Version: 4.5.0
Now, every time I do a software update on my phone or on Desktop Manager it states there are no other updates but I notice on other blogs that I can update to a higher version. Why is this happening? Am I missing something? I especially want to upgrade my Blackberry Messenger to the 5.0 version since all my friends are using it and some of my contacts are showing strange icons and the display names are getting cut off.
Anyone have any suggestions?
