    I'm assuming you mean to update to OS 6?

    If u think you can upgrade from 9700 to 9780 then thats to far fetched. May be you can use the Market section to swap ur 9700 with 9780

    What he means is that he wants his software to be like the 9780, which is OS6. Joe already explained how to do that.

    Hi,

    If you upgrade your blackberry os , two possibilities may happen ;


    1. If you have a jail broken blackberry os, You will lose your jailbreak
    2. If you have an unlocked blackberry os, you may lost it too.

    Before updating your blackberry os , you need to take backup of your data files from your blackberry os . After that, use Unlock code to unlock it . you can get it from any of the online vendors like OnlineGSMUnlock.com to unlcok it . It is one of the permanent unlocking solution too. After unlocking your blackberry os using this method, you can update or downgrade your blackberry os without any interruption . it won't gets locked again . If you have completed unlocking and updating process, you can use restore service to restore your data files from backup .

    After unlocking your Blackberry bold, you can use the following steps to upgrade your ios version :



    1. First of all, you need to check the latest firmware version is available for your blackberry bold .

    2. If it is available, download ios 7.1 from Blackberry support

    3. After that , follow the instructions in blackberry supprort to upgrade your device .
