    You need to go to your provider's download site, and then download and install the latest version of firmware available for your device. Note that only the Pearl and 8800 have 4.2 available (in the US). I've heard there is a version of 4.2 for the 8700, but it's from a non US provider.
    All provider's download sites can be found here:
