There are two ways of checking this. Here’s the easiest way:

1. Type anywhere on your BlackBerry “Myver” without the quotations. Once you press spacebar you should see a text showing the BlackBerry model, your OS and build. Something like this: 9850/7.1.0.580 (B1737)

 

The other way is by checking your phone’s “About” info.

1. Go to “Options” and select the “Device” menu

2. Here, go to the “About Device Versions” option

7.1 Bundle 1737 (v7.1.0.580, Platform 5.1.0.429)
