    While I can't give you the OTA, I do have a Zip that you can try to download to your PC if you would like.

    Hope this helps.

    Welcome to BBOS. In order to run BBM 5.0, you will need to upgrade your OS first. BBM 5.0 will not run on the current version you are using. I should caution you as this is risky for any person who is new and unfamiliar to the world of BlackBerry.

    First step would be to verify your model. On your phone go to Options > About and verify that the first line reads 8330, or if it reads 8330m. This makes a huge difference.

    The latest official 8330 OS version is 4.5.0.169 offered by Cellular South. This is what I recommend you upgrade to. Yes, it is possible to install an OS from a different carrier than your own, so long as it is for the same phone model you own.

    So to begin, click here and choose the option that says BlackBerry® Curve (TM) 8330 smartphone. Do not get it confused with the option for the 8330m, you do not want that.

    On the next page it will list several different version. This is what you are looking for, it should be the first one listed:

    BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.281 (Multilanguage)

    Package Version: 4.5.0.281
    Consisting of:

    * Applications: 4.5.0.169
    * Software Platform: 3.4.0.51
    * File name: 8330uAMEA_PBr4.5.0_rel281_PL3.4.0.51_A4.5.0.169_Ce llular_South.exe
    * File size: 83.18MB

    Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.

    * Download Software
    Click on download. It will ask you for some info, then it will let you download the software. Don't install the OS to your computer just yet. The guide I have linked below will tell you when.

    Here is an awesome guide with a lot of details on exactly how you can upgrade the OS on your phone. It should help you a lot.
