    can someone tell me where to get the new 4.2 os and how hard is it to install. I am told you have to delete a file. I want to make sure I screw things up.

    you would have to login to your carriers site, and find the latest os for your device.

    it's not difficult at all, even easier if you use you own providers software.

    Re: 4.2 os

    I donwloaded 4.2 from cingular last night and it seems to be working well for my 8700c. One question does anyone have a list of the improvements over the old 4.1 software. I was specifically looking for voicenotes. I was under the impression this feature was included. Was I wrong. I don't see and icon. I do see a PPT but I am guessing thats not it. Thanks

I am at 4.1 currently (within the month switching to a new carrier or getting the 8830) and need some guidance, please.

    thank u in advance.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Its ok to download the desktop 4.2 but VZW doesn't have 4.2 for the hand held. Personally I don't recomend tyhat you try 4.2 on your 8703e as it is not CDMA ready. As far as I remember.
