    Should be soon no worries, the problem comes from the provider not RIM.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ We will probably have to install it from an outside carrier like 8700 owners had to do. Verizon takes for ever to release anything.

    I can't think of a different provider who will get it before Verizon. Sprint, Bell, Altel and Telus will be later for sure.

    You'll know when it's out. It will be announced all over every BB forum site.

    Telus could be the first in Canada 'cause they're really fast on DATA, we have the PPC 6800 since 3 weeks and it's not out until the end of may for USA

    I think we may just have to wait forever since Alltel doesn't get stuff very quickly.

    Alltel is definitely the last carrier to get almost anything, phones, upgrades...whatever. I will say though that usually when they release something, there has been plenty of time for the bugs and all that to be worked out prior to its release so I'll use that as my "glass is half full" positive attitude

    I heard that the new os 4.2 for sprint runs very slow, and that they might just scrap the 4.2 and jump to 4.3 the final version for 8703e model phones.

    That would be nice to see any 4.3 software for 8700 phones. Anyone know what changes will be in the upgrade?

    Where are you getting your info from? I'm actually pretty doubtful of this seeing as the 8703e is scheduled for EOL (end of life) later this year for Sprint. No love.

    Ijust installed 4.2 and it runs noticably slower. I used a benchmark tool and found that it is running at about 60% of the normal speed for an 8703e. Clearing up some memory and doing a hard reset did not help.
