    8700 4.2 Upgrade- WAS IT WORTH IT??

    Advertisement



    In what was one of the busiest threads I've seen at Pinstack in a while. The old timers here that own 8700's FINALLY got an upgrade.

    Was it worth it? Was it everything you EVER dreamed of? Did a whole new world of magic and wonder expose itself to you?

    Or was it just a bunch of HYPE???


    Also has anyone discovered any ways to customize anything in this OS?
    Maybe make themes? or any othe tricks???

    IMHO

    I think so, there is some minor tweaks to be made but altogether a good upgrade

    Just my ability to get past the policies at work that refused to allow me to add custom ring tones made the whole thing worth while!!!

    Does anyone's bb lag after the upgrade? Mine is not bad but it feels slower.

    Mine seems slower too. Do you think an update to make it faster is in the works?

    I thought it was worth it. I love the fact that I can now listen to voicemail attachments in my work email. The speed of my BB seems the same. The only thing I would change would be the Zen theme, I don't like the change to the application list. if you use Zen, you know what I mean.

    Sorry, I went back and edited my post. I meant voicemail in work emails.
