    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Cdma seems so slow at getting updates. So I'm sure we're headed for a long wait.

    Start a petition to Sprint. They have it. They won't release it though. It does exist for the 8703 and has for some time now.

    Re: 8703e Upgrade to 4.2

    Hey guys.......I just returned from WES 2007 and asked this same question to a couple of the RIM guys. The answer I got was that 4.2 probably wouldn't be released for the 8703 until after the release of the CDMA 8830 device which is not slated to come out until sometime over the summer.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ It has not been released by the carrier yet.

    All the carriers have access to the 4.2 Operating System...

    TMobile...Cingular...Sprint...Verizon...Telus...Te lstra...Hong Kong...Etc...

    It's not RIM who is keeping it from the carriers...It is the carriers that are keeping it from their consumers.

    If 4.2 isn't released by Sprint until the 8830 is released (In June), then that's an issue with Sprint, not with RIM.

    I personally figured that the US carriers would have gotten off of their big high horse when the overseas carriers released the 4.2 operating system and fallen in line with them...

    Of course, with corporate america being as greedy as they are, it would be surprising if they even release 4.2 and make you buy a new device if you want to have it.

    Re: 8703e Upgrade to 4.2

    Exactly, which would make since to not release until after the 8830, if at all. This way people would have to purchase the new 8830 device to get the new OS and functions of. One thing is for sure, there is a business reason for not releasing it.

    Re: 8703e Upgrade to 4.2

    So I see I can get 4.2 for the 8703e from the RIM website. Will this work with my Sprint 8703e or will I brick it?
