Bell and Virgin Blackberry Torch 9800 update to OS 6.0.0.706 now available


Even though most devices are getting bumped up to BlackBerry OS 7, RIM and the carriers still have to take care of the customers who are on the first-gen devices. The Bell and Virgin Mobile BlackBerry Torch 9800 has been updated to OS version 6.0.0.706 (up from v6.0.0.534). If you have this on either carrier you can go forth and download it from BlackBerry – as usual, make sure you back up your device.

    I think you messed up and put another number when you said it was bumped from 6.0.0.3049 because where I’m from, 706 is less than 3049. :p

      I think where your from they have yet to send you to school. .7 is bigger than .3347584759

      No matter how many numbers you put after the 3.

    @bob and anyone else wondering what’s new about the update…
    I have no idea what the specifics are. But I am one of those suckers stuck with the Torch 9800 which has run horribly slow to the point of constant frustration over the last few months (believe me, it’s not just me. my wife has one and a good friend too — all experiencing the same problems)

    I installed this update on mine and my wife’s BB9800′s and everything just seems to run better. The graphics feel smoother when scrolling, youtube videos open up quickly and without the ‘spinny thing of doom’… I can now wonder away from my WiFi network and still access the internet — none of this was possible yesterday.

    Very strongly recommend this update for anyone else who is stuck with a Torch 9800 on a 3-yr contract.
