    Hello karendewet and welcome to .
    If you have Desktop Manager, plug in your Bold and see if your carrier is offering an update. If you don't have DM, you can download it from here for a windows system, BlackBerry - Desktop Software for PC or if you're using a MAC, BlackBerry - Desktop Software for Mac.
    Not sure what OS Vodacom has released, but you can get the latest official RIM release from here, 9700 Bold - Downloads - BlackBerryOS.com. Download the OS you want first, and then refer to this how-to, All In One Guide - How To Upgrade Your Device - with Pictures & Videos. Go through the how-to a few times to get comfortable with the steps and then down load the newest OS.

    Any questions, we're here.
