    I forgot which carrier...but they posted on their website that April 9th will be the release date.
    Also the new 8330 for sprint and verizon will be coming out in the next week or two with the 4.3 OS so we should be updated that time also!

    Doesn't matter if TMO has it or not. As long as it's for YOUR device (number, not carrier) and it's GSM then you are fine.
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?

    When it comes out go here and get the OS and follow the wipe instruction somewhere within the pin stack site

    Updating Software

    For SPRINT to update the software (when it comes out- I just checked and NOT UP YET ) just go to www.nextel.com/blackberry and click on Software Updates for BlackBerry 8830, 8703e and 7130e which is on the bottom right underneath Software & Upgrades. Then select what you're looking for (Blackberry 8830 Wireless Handheld TM) and then select the software version... The most recent version will be the uppermost 'download' link on the page. Currently that is v4.2.2.322 so no update yet...

    They keep saying "soon soon soon" for the newest release of this software and every time the projected deadline (like when they said it would be released) comes up, it's a no go.

    Blackberry.com doesn't have it up yet either, so it's not just an issue of SPRINT.COM not being up to date yet...

    If you want to download from blackberry follow the following:
    Go to Blackberry.com, click on SUPPORT in the bottom left, click on DOWNLOADS in the index on the left, then choose BlackBerry® Device Software and BlackBerry® Desktop Software then choose Access your service provider download site. From there choose your service provider (sprint or verizon) and download from there... Going to your carrier site is obviously the quicker route, but I checked this route as well to see if one carrier had the update before the other, and found nothing. So it's still a waiting game on the updated BB 8830 software.

    I'll continue to check for when the update is finally in production, and I'll post once I see it, unless someone else posts that it's available first.

    Has anyone heard if there will any changes to the voice activated dialing in the new release? I would like to use that feature while the device is locked.

    Passwords are a pain when you are driving.
