    Too bad I don't have any Verizon bbs. I'll try and find a way to squeeze this on a sprint 8703e. I have a personal verizon phone but its not a BB. I'll see if that works in the morning.

    Hmm. Been on the "wait for device initialization" screen for a little while. BB is on the white screen w/ hourglass. A little concerned.... is this normal?

    It's normal, DO NOT touch your device or wiggle the USB cord.

    Nevermind. Got it going. It looks like 4.2 so far. But, the fact that "media" only gives me the option of ringtones and pictures is a pile of crap. I'm glad to see the ability to email my pictures though. I never understood that before.

    I'm not surprised about the media player, as the device can't use a memory card.

    One of the things my users are excited about is the ability to send voice messages from BB messenger.

    so how would I go about getting this on my sprint 8703e. I am new to this whole thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Is your BB acting a bit sluggish? All my apps are running dial-up speed? Any sugguestions out there; besides switching to the 8830?

    yeah its a bit sluggy. I got offered a trade deal for an 8830 tonight. So, hopefully I'll be making the switch soon.
