    The rumor is that the 7100's are not going to get the 4.2 upgrade. Are the 7100's becoming obsolete?

    Even though they won't have the upgrade, I will be sticking with it as I just got the phone about 2 months ago. If I get rid of it (it will be in mint condition) and sell it for $200 on here and give some extra accessories along with it. Next phone will be a Pearl.

    Thanks for the update guys.

    Well i think that RIM should already consider an upgrade to there Iden collection, its not fare that we have to get a model every 10 years and CDMA/GSM gets one almost everyday (and different colors too!!!)

    I hope that they have something good in mind for us loyal IDEN BB users.

    I agree, where's a petition to sign for this? lol j/k but I do with megabite, we iDEN users need a wider field to play in as the cdma and gsm users get more open area than we do and more options than they know what to do with

    Just my.02cents. I will be changing my device at the end of the year to a Pearl, that is if they don't come out with something else....

    Sprint has the 8703e if you're looking for something new, and is also getting an 88xx model soon.

    I can't goto Sprint, they don't have the 2way and Ready Link is garbage.. I'll stick with my 7100i until the end of the year and upgrade to Pearl if I do go with Sprint., looks like a winner

    I don't know if the 7100's can handle the 4.2 OS. I've upgraded some of our 7100G's and 7100i's from 4.0 to 4.1 and they got very sluggish. I'd hate to see what would happen if they got 4.2. My .02
