    You can go here: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...BB765225CE8C0E which is Sprint's download site for BB updates. 4.2 is available via this download.

    Download the new OS...double-click the setup file and go through the desktop installation. Once that is complete, it will prompt you to connect your device to the DM and the installation will begin to upgrade your OS.

    Follow this guide here if you need help: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...read.php?t=929 Disregard the step where it advises to delete the "vendor.xml" file because you are downloading the OS for your device/carrier.

    hey kale, so r u saying if i decided to leave the vendor file when i did the upgrade it wouldnt have affected the upgrade to my phone?? but by removing the vendor i am technically installing the vendor of where it came from, technically losing functions one had originally with their carrier such as sprint radio??? (for 8330)
    totally off subject sorry just curious

    The vendor file matches your BB provider to the os you are installing. If you have a sprint BB and are installing a sprint OS you don't have to remove it. But, if you have a sprint BB but are installing another provider's os you must delete the vendor file or the os won't install.
