    No 4.2 OS for Verizon 7130e?

    Advertisement



    I had a 8700c through Cingular and I had the ATT 4.2 os working fine on it, my work just bought me a new 7130e through their provider Verizon (they will pay 100% of bill this way) but i dont see a 4.2 upgrade anywheres. Any ideas?

    You can't install an AT&T OS on a Verizon phone. AT&T is GSM and Verizon is CDMA. Ain't gonna work. The best you van do is install Verizon's latest OS for the 7130 but since its such an old phone I would be shocked if you could get a 4.2 OS for it.

    You can do it with backup/restore. Connect the 8700 to Desktop Manager, click Backup Restore, click Advanced, and backup Content Store. Then connect the 7130 to the Desktop Manager and restore.

    I dont know what happened via BBM ellandry, but there is no 4.2 OS for the 7130. Try Mark's way above, works great.

    I dont understand why there would be a gsm 7130 4.2 os but not one for the cdma 7130. Obviously the 7130 can handle the OS

    Amen, brother -- I'm wondering whether newer BBs that are cdma can have 4.2? Then why not the 7130?

    i dont understand why verizon and sprint held out on the 4.2 os for there 7130 and 8700 models but the gsm versions have the os i loved my 7130e but had to get a 8830 because i got tired of waiting but on a side note the cdma 8830 is 2 upgrades above the gsm versions they still waiting on 4.2.2

    Even the newer 8703e doesn't have a 4.2 OS available - Only the 8830 is 4.2

    I am enjoying the 8703 w/ the 4.1 OS. 4.2 is still working out alot of bugs and I am fine with the 4.1 and I am usually the type that wants the latest and greatest as soon as it's available.

    I'll wait on the 4.2 upgrade even if it is released. cp6169 and I already had the 4.2 discussion .

    On my old 8700g the 4.1 OS was substantially faster than the 4.2. If my son ever gives that device back to me, I'll downgrade to the 4.1
