    Exclamation 8520 5.0 os help!

    Ok, so I'm a little new to the BB world. Pretty new to smart phones. Not using it for work use but for a personal one. I've noticed a lot of things i'd like to try are for 5.0 only and my 8520 is still running on 4.6. Now, i've had someone tell me that I had to down load the OS I want onto my laptop (i'm using Windows 7) Do I have to use the BB disc that comes with the BB to put it on? If not where do I save it to on my phone? I don't want to perma lock my phone and kill it. So before I try this I need some advice. If you could give some I would greatly appreciate!!!

    Try to redownload it and save it first. Then try to open it. See if that helps.
