    Need Help Installing new OS

    Guys,
    I really hate to be a pain, but I absolutely have no clue on how install any of the new OS on my BlackBerry Storm 9530. Can anyone please help me? I have an out of commission storm that I want to try the software on first. What one should I use? I don't have the backup assistant either...how does that work? I want to back up my phone numbers. Help please! Im getting ready to freak out, this phone is really frustrating me, its my 3rd one since Nov. Thanks.

    Corey

    now that was easy. lol do what he said.

    it's really easy man and if you get stuck or dont' understand. repost and someone will walk ya through it.

    My suggestion would be take the BIG PLUNGE and load up V6/.148.

    Who's your sevice provider and what os are you running right now?

    Verizon....and I'm on .75 version....AKA hell. Its so glitchy and slow.....I'm not sure why I dont have the BB desktop thingy either? Is that supposed to be loaded off the disc is came with? IT says V cast music, and VZ access manager on it....not sure what any of this stuff is.

    cool start with that. Load up DM but if it gives you a choice load the one without the media manager. (IT SUCKS AWAY) and read the post bryan gave you.

    .75 eh right on a virgin..

    You should have received two discs with your Blackberry - one as you described but not the one that will put the Desktop manager on your PC.
    The other is labeled BlackBerry - Blackberry User Tools....and is what you need to load on your PC to get started. If you don't have it, you can also download the desktop software from the Verizon site. Follow this link to BB and drill down to your provider. http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support...load_sites.jsp
    Lots of good people on this site to help you get through all the steps.
