    Hello thatguy9, welcome to BlackBerryOS!

    I don't recommend taking the screen apart yourself unless you know what you are doing. I'd call up some local cell phone technicians in your area to see what they would charge to clean out the dust for you. You may need to order a new screen.

    As for the latest OS for the 9550, see here... AppalachianWireless_9550_5.0.0.1082 - Downloads - BlackBerryOS.com

    For how to install the OS, see here... http://www.blackberryos.com/blackber...es-videos.html

    Be sure to let us know how things work out for you.

    I don't recommend this unless you are good at taking apart electronics and putting them back together: What I have done is search YouTube for "how to" videos..that's how I learned to take apart my old Curve 8330 and my Bold 9930. If you are NOT good at that sort of stuff, take Joe's advice and please take it your local fix-it shop!

    Again, if you attempt to do it yourself, I will not be held responsible for you throwing your phone across the room out of frustration in a moment of insanity.
    BB then, now, forever!
