    As an 8703e owner, I have been reading a lot of posts relating to upgrading my OS from 4.1 to 4.2.

    Can anyone who has upgraded their 8703e to 4.2 outline what advantages they have found in having upgraded their OS to 4.2.

    When you ran desktop manager, and connected your BB to your computer, did it ask you if you wanted to update the BB?

    Question Re: 4.2 OS released for Verizon 8703e!

    Did you install both the latest Desktop Manager (v4.2.2 SP2) AND the new OS (v4.2.1.106)?

    I'd probably uninstall both Desktop Manager and the OS update from your PC, reinstall and try again.

    I see you're on sprint, you need to delete the vendor.xml file for the update to work.

    Good catch, I missed that, I thought joek was on Verizon...oops.

    To delete the vendor file, go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader and delete the vendor.xml file.
