    I downloaded it on Wednesday, and it was working. I believe it was posted Wednesday morning.

    For one thing, when you load this software on your PC, it will allow you to load applications, themes or wipe and reload the OS on your device, via Desktop Manager > App Loader.

    Re: 8830 Software up on VZW Smithmicro site

    This is straight from my major accts rep:


    Issues Resolved:
    · Call Collision - During voice call, user receives incoming call (call waiting). User ends first call and answers 2nd call. User then ends 2nd call. Tries to make outgoing call and can't because device thinks it is still on a call
    · GSM to CDMA Reconnect - While in GSM mode, if device or radio was powered down with no coverage or left on during flight back to US, device would not reestablish data connectivity in CDMA coverage until battery was removed and reinserted.
    · GSM System Determination - Multiple issues resolved with acquiring network connectivity while in GSM.
    · Calendar Sync - Three issues resolved with this firmware update.
    · CDMA Radio Fixes - Corrected SIP fallback issue experienced in some markets resulting in Error 348 on the handheld device.
    Enhancements:
    · Unlocked SIM Functionality - The device can now be unlocked to support the use of non-VZW SIMs for voice and data service on GSM/GPRS networks. Note: Customers using third-party SIMs are not supported by VZW while roaming on GSM/GPRS networks.
    · Stereo Bluetooth - Device now supports A2DP and AVRCP Bluetooth profiles which adds compatibility with stereo Bluetooth headsets.
    · Keypad Backlighting - Keypad backlighting will now engage in low-to-medium lighting conditions improving usability.
    · Ringer Volume - A 6dB boost to audio notifications while the device is holstered.

    Not sure if related, but last year sometime, we had similar issue with 7250's receiving this error, and randomly rebooting. Ended up being an issue with the "Neighbor List" needing to be updated on the cell sites. Not sure if I am explaining this correctly.

    I was never given a thourough understanding of the acutal problem. But, it only affected Blackberrys (Not cell phones or aircards) for the specific area. Once the updated all of the Neighborlist for surrounding sites, the problem was resolved.

    This happened on two different occasions in two seperate areas, and the fix was the same both times, from what I was told.

    Strange if it is the same or similar issue in Puerto Rico...
