Also, if you don't have Blackberry Desktop Manager installed (which you should) you can use this link to get the update via a web browser: http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/devices/#tab_tab_update
Once it's available Sunday night, of course.
Is this a trial an error until it shows up or is there a specific time tonight when we will get it? I keep getting an update on my Desktop Mgr. that says core 4.7 upgrade? Mine is a late August phone and has all the latest as far as I know files , software on it? I keep declining it.
I continue to get the core 4.7 thing, too. I thought I was up to date?
It is just showing you what update you have installed on your computer and phone. After you download the 5.0 upgrade tonight, it will show the 5.0 update.
By the way, if the upgrade goes through tonight, I plan on being around in the forums tonight if anyone has questions or problems. Just message me or post.
I've been reading in many places that the update has been pushed to the 26th. The schedule release was 25th at 6:00pm EST, so if you don't see it after that time then check it tomorrow.
I don't know where you get this stuff. All the material I have says it will be released 10pm Eastern time. So Desktop Manager shouldn't show anything up until then.
Just a quick reminder to all Blackberry users to backup your device with Blackberry Desktop Manager. Any of you Storm users who are planning to upgrade whenever the upgrade comes out, it will be a good idea to have a backup of your data just in case of problems so you can have something to fall back on. What was the old saying, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
