    In a nut-shell, it's the type of service your device operates on. I see you are using an 8703e. You are on a CDMA service. (Sprint, Verizon, Alltel are all CDMA.) Tmob, Cingular (AT&T,) etc. are all GSM.

    Re: 8703e Upgrade to 4.2

    Unfortunately for fellow Verizon 8703e users, they updated the firmware at vzw.smithmicro.com/blackberry yesterday (5/23) but it is a newer 4.1 version.

    Re: 8703e Upgrade to 4.2

    Oddly enough .... the new version is now missing. Here is the filename of what i downloaded:

    8703eEFSBP_PBr4.1.0_rel539_PL2.2.0.176_A4.1.0.377. exe

    Was available last evening on vzw.smithmicro.com/blackberry

    Odd that they would even release another 4.1 OS update, unless it's gonna be a while for 4.2. I heard 4.2 wouldn't be released for the 8703e until after the 8830.......which is mid-summer.

    Re: 8703e Upgrade to 4.2

    I'm hoping that they posted a 4.1 in error and are waiting until Monday to hit with 4.2. There was a new 8830e section on the smithmicro site last night as well.

    The new(??) firmware on the smithmacro site has the same OS 4.1.0.344 but the date has been changed to yesterday. Someone said it may contain dialup modem support. Don't think I'll load it.

    Like CP said, I heard that it was laggy too and the GPS wasn't working well.

    Re: 8703e Upgrade to 4.2

    The version there last night was Platform 2.2.0.176 / App 4.1.0.377

    i can confirm no Bluetooth DUN support. I'm a Mac using and will be checking out the 8830e come Monday morning.
