    Has anyone successfully gotten the laptop tether to work with the 8703e on Alltel? I can't find the APN so that I can get beyond just getting a public IP after dialing in. However, it would still be nice to play our WAV files from email for Unified Messaging. Now with Exchange 2007 out, there is even more reason for this OS update to come out.

    I guess the law of obsolescence rules in this instance...

    Still no luck with Telus. I suspect they're going to wait until they've milked every dime they can out of the 8830 and then, maybe, in a fit of weakness, we might see it. Greed knows no bounds.

    Re: 8703e Upgrade to 4.2

    No word on Telus either ?? Greedy so and so's!! I checked the link in another thread that links directly to the RIM website. They still have 4.1.0.352 listed as the latest software for the 8703e. If I take out the vendor file (I believe it is an .xml file) then any carriers CDMA software should work shouldn't it?? Any advice or links to the S/W would be appreciated.

    no 4.2 yet? then why is there mention that one of the problems with google maps for 8703 is that the newest release (1.6.1 i think) was for os 4.2 and that is why its failing. someone forget to let google know that 4.2 is held up?

    Man, I'm starting to get my pleats in a knot.


    LOL

    Said somewhat in jest... though it really is dissapointing us CDMAers are left in the cold. I really want to upgrade to the 8830, but full price isn't sounding so doable at the moment. 4.3 is already on the horizon, and yet the 8703e is still on 4.1 WTF???

    I've read the word "greedy" a lot in this thread.And I aggree. VZW has tampered and disabled the crap out of everything they touched. I can't believe I still have the service.

    I see that the facebook app only works with the 4.2 firmware. Any word on the release of this version for the 8703e on Bell?

    Re: 8703e Upgrade to 4.2

    Well, Telus has finally released 4.2 for the 8703. Just got the bulletin this morning. Has anyone tried to do the upgrade yet? The part that makes me nervous is that they take up more space in the bulletin telling us what to do with a "fried handset" than they do with instructions for the actual upgrade itself. Of course I could be just being paranoid, but long experience with Telus has made me very cautious. Anybody with info on this can pin me anytime @ 3017676C Thanks in advance for any and all help.
    P.S. I have a few clients asking about this and I'm somewhat reluctant to tell them that this is now available.

    Re: 8703e Upgrade to 4.2

    I've only upgraded sprint 8703s to the Verizon 4.2 os. I can't see there being too many differences, but I would try it out on a spare BB and see how the update works for you. I think I've done 4 or 5 but every update has been a success.
