    Hello Batselei, welcome to BBOS!

    First you will need to find the OS you want to use. You can download the most current OS for the 9700 in our Downloads Center here... 9700 Bold - Downloads - BlackBerry Forums at BlackBerryOS.com

    Then follow our How To Guide on upgrading your device... http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/b...es-videos.html

    Good luck, and don't hesitate to post any questions along the way.

    Hi Batseli,
    No the carrier won't affect the OS system. The OS is specific to the phone model. So an OS for a 9700 will work no matter the carrier. That said there can be some quirky things that occur with certain carriers so when you load 6.0 be sure to check out the forums to see what others users say. Personally I'm on ATT and .461 didn't work well on my 9700 but .448 ran pretty good. With .461 I had a lot of hourglasses as if my phone was always processing something behind the scenes. Read the link that Joe posted and also make sure there are people online before you start loading it for the first time.
    Good luck!
