Blackberry makes the hardware, whoever is your cell service provider will have OS updates for your phone.

You should be able to get a generic update from blackberry and use the desktop manager to update your phone, but that could remove a bunch of applications.

What error message? Are you using the exact software for your model? You just download the BB rom files from the site, you don't need a contact.

Here is a site with an over the air update, you can do it from WiFi

Have not tried this though.

Also from what other sites have posted, there is no updated OS to 6 for that model, if you try to upgrade, the BB may not work afterward.
