Instead of doing it manually at home or office, it is better to take the PB at Authorised Service Ceter. You will get the updated PB returned same day within 2-3 hours. And yes, it's free of cost.
Without wifi at the initial setup the device won't come on and when you do connect to a wifi network, it takes a long time to update because the update is sometimes over 3oomb, I recommend buying an apple device, blackberry stinks and its to much drama. Can't wait for blackberry to close its doors and keep it close.

up date is usually automatic,must have minimum 20% battery and be plugged into
mains, if screen freezes up press power button and press restart, up date is about 518 Mb
it is major improvement, as after update you have e mail with out blackberry phone and other improvments I bought one at launch 16GB and waited for 2.0 update worth it, as playbook can be used as stand alone tablet, with any phone wi-fi hotspot, an underrated tablet and just bought 32GB
playbook for £149 too good to miss, selling out fast. Hope this helps.
i bought a playbook 2weeks back and since then i've been unable to use it.... i experienced an initial setup problem. after switching it on for the first time, it asked me to perform a mandatory update to OS2 before i'll be able to use it at all.
dont know maybe anyone has experience a similar issue. will like to know if there's any solution to this.

I use my playbook very regularly by connecting with Nokia phone for internet. It is just perfect. No Android Or Ipad can give you professional grade experience that this device gives. Very rich user experience. Multitasking is the name of the game.
Please note that Playbook gives a very rich user experience. Its UI is awesome. Multitasking is real.
It is a real business grade tablet. Also, it can connect to ANY bluetooth (not necessarily blacbberry phone) and you can tether to connect as long as your phone allows.
@ CJLucis: for the applications or games? will there be a problem about it if ever i'm not connected to the BIS? the BIS is for the blackberry services right?

You could get complete BIS for P600 a month from Globe.
