Buy your 'Berry from ShopBlackBerry or Amazon and didn't receive 10.3.1? Here's a trick to try
Sure, you can drown your sorrows by heading out to the nearest bar and sinking a few pints. But all that will accomplish is leaving you without BlackBerry 10.3.1 and making you drunk. But there might be a way to coax the update out manually. Here is what you do, according to a tweet from BlackBerry product manager Michael Clewley. Turn the power off your phone, remove the SIM card and turn on the device using Wi-Fi only. Check to see if the update has arrived on your handset. Turn the power off again, reinsert the SIM card, and continue.
This is not a perfect fix because it doesn't work all of the time. But it just might bring you BlackBerry 10.3.1 and BlackBerry Assistant, which we know you're dying to try. Give it a shot and drop us a line to let us know if it works.
