Verizon has just released an official update to the BlackBerry Tour OS from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52. To get the latest OS version do the following:
- Connect your BlackBerry to the PC via USB cable
- Go to this site using Internet Explorer: http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/devices/#tab_tab_update
- Click the Update button on the page that pops up.
- Follow the instructions, but pretty much from here, it’s next, next, next
- DO NOT DISCONNECT your BlackBerry until the entire process finishes
I’m in the process of doing this upgrade right now and will add additional details about changes I notice next.
