    Some (but even then, they need to be 8700-series specific). I have been able to successfully use several of the themes bundled with (but vendor blocked) the OS v4.2.1.106 baseline by editing the blackberry.alx (to remove vendorID tags). Additionally, the bPhone Icon and Zen themes (http://RogersMJ.com) work well, but there is no way to activate the Today variant once installed on the device -- Matt is looking at this.

    MotoUp, when i had the old verizon 4.1 and you selected the app icon it would give you a scroll up and down for your apps, now it just puts them across the screen, even though I am running the old zen theme

    Oh, I see what you're saying. I don't believe you can change that. Maybe someone else knows a way?

    That's how the 4.2 Zen theme acts. The program list is gone, it just displays all programs in the grid.

    Re: 4.2 OS released for Verizon 8703e!

    I recently upgraded my 8703e to v4.2.1 and I'm relatively pleased so far.

    Reestablished communication to the BES just fine. The enhanced
    features are moderately useful. Google maps finally works after
    reinstall.

    However, I'd prefer not to have the setup wizard on the desktop.
    Is there a way of removing this?

    The only operational quirk I haven't been able to resolve
    involves the power meter. It displays one bar short (3 of 4)
    of fully charged when at maximum charge. I've verified charge
    levels by going to; settings>options>status. I tried pulling and
    restoring the battery, but it didn't correct the condition. The meter
    always displayed properly until the upgrade.

    Any thoughts?

    The battery meter issue is a known bug with the default Verizon theme provided with OS v4.2.1 -- I have reported it to VZW, who forwarded me to RIM. RIM now has an open ticket. In the interim (or permanently), select another one of the default themes, enable one or more of the vendor locked themes bundled with OS v4.2.1, or install a third-party OS v4.2.1 theme -- I use bPhone Zen from http://RogersMR.com/ ("donationware").

    You can hide the Setup Wizard. ALT-Click, and select Hide Icon.
