The update is available for the BlackBerry Bold 9900 i.e Bold 5, BlackBerry Torch 9810, BlackBerry Curve 9360 and 9380 smartphones, and the Porsche Design P9981 smartphone from BlackBerry.

If you are not using to Updating your Phone OS in the Past, I bet you should give the 7.1 Update a Trial, You will never Regret it.

The Blackberry 7.1 OS Update Comes with a whole lot of Mouth Watering Features to enhance your Blackberry Device and get more out of it easily

Features of the New Blackberry 7.1 OS Updates

1. Battery Saving Mode:- Stay in touch, listen to music and play games without worrying about running down your battery. Activate the clever Battery Saving Mode App and your BlackBerry smartphone will automatically reduce it’s power usage when necessary to maximize battery life. You’ll never have to compromise on doing the things you enjoy most.

2. Blackberry Tag:- Invite friends to BBM, share contact information, documents, URLs, photos and other multimedia content with a simple tap of your devices1. You can even tap Near Field Communication enabled posters and coupons to pick up special rewards and offers.

3. Mobile Hotspot:- Need to connect to the internet but don’t have access to a WI-Fi hotspot? Then activate Mobile Hotspot on your BlackBerry smartphone and create one of your own. All you need is a 3G network and you can wirelessly connect up to 5 WI-Fi devices to enjoy continuous, private internet coverage on your laptop or tablet.

4. Mobile Media Server:- Connect using wireless your BlackBerry smartphone to your games console and share all your music, movies and pictures with a room full of friends. Now every special moment you’ve captured can be played back on the big screen for everyone to enjoy.

5. FM Radio:- Enjoy information and entertainment at your fingertips. With FM tuner support, tune in to your favorite local FM stations on the spot, from virtually anywhere. The BlackBerry 7.1 OS update will let BlackBerry® Curve™ 9360 and 9380 smartphone customers enjoy FM radio. The Curve models include a built-in FM radio so you can tune in to local FM radio stations.

Its Amazing!!!


TO UPDATE YOUR BLACKBERRY OS USING THE OVER THE AIR METHOD

Settings > Device > Software Updates. This will Check for New Updates, If your OS is up to date, You will be Notified else you will be Prompted to Update your OS

NOTE:- Once you notice their is a New Updates and you want to Update your OS, Always charge your Blackberry battery Full and plugged before Proceeding.

Advantage of this method:
Its much more better because the Size of the Download OS Files is much more lower and it does not give the chance to lose your Files unlike the Desktop Manager Method.

Imagine Blackberry just adding FM and making it look like a big deal. When Nokia had debuted its radio way back since 2003.

No to both questions

Re: Update Your Blackberry To Os 7.1 For The Best Ever Blackberry Experience by femi4: 11:51am On Sep 27, 2012
Ok, it will take close to 4-5 hours and your phone just have to be plugged on cos any interruption due to power/battery failure will affect the upgrade.
Furthermore, you ll not loose any of your files even bbm contacts

I also use 9800 and my OS is 7.0. I have been trying to upgrade to 7.1 but my "Stupid" phone tells me the OS is up to date. i contacted RIM and was informed that my carrier (Airtel) determines the OS i can download. Is there any way i can trick my phone and carrier into allowing me to upgrade to OS 7.1?

Updating through pressing the software update on your phone, is not the best option. Download blackberry desktop software on your computer, connect your phone to your computer via usb cable, make sure you have a BIS enabled sim card installed and you computer is online @ the point of update.
