Upgrading Curve 3G to Blackberry OS 6

I have an unlocked Blackberry Curve 3G (9300).

 

I am running OS 5.0.

 

The phone is compatible with the newest Blackberry OS (Blackberry 6) and I want to upgrade. I've downloaded the software and am ready to do it but am a little hesitant.

 

Has anyone done this? Does it cause any issues with the Fido network or anything like that?

On the Curve 3G I prefered OS 5 mainly because the UI is designed for larger displays and touch screens.

 

But it is pretty easy to upgrade and wait for a few days, if you like it you can stay.

 

If not you can downgrade by:  

Uninstalling OS 6 from windows control panel

Going into Blackberry Desktop Manager

Backup!

Click upgrade and then select OS 5

@ Community:

 

Has anyone tried the Blackberry 6 OS on the Blackberry 9300?

 

Can anyone provide kareembibi with feedback on this software version?
