    Prezmcmahon, I don't believe a beta version of 4.2 for the 8700 has been released yet.

    interesting. Is there a newer build than 4.1.0.377 available? I have read the 386 and above support WAV files.

    i would like to use that version if possible. I have my voicemail come to my email, and thus to my BB, but it can't play the file. WAV support is supposed to be in the new version.

    NO.

    If the software hasnt been released by RIM yet then unfortunately the OS cant be posted for download.

    Re: Blackberry 8700 4.2 beta

    I'm in the same situation. Don't make the mistake of buying a porgram called VoicePop -- it will NOT enable your 8703e to play wav even though the big lettering in its ads insinuates that it does.

    If you search my member name you will see I have been posting this same request here for a few weeks and I have come to the conclusion that there is nothing that can be done until 4.2 is officially released. If the wav support is absent or poor then someone (likely candidate would be the developers of the program called "Repligo" or "DocHawk") will hopefully add an online wav to mp3 conversion service to their existing online attachment conversion and storage service.

    I even fought to get convince my service that sends out wavs to offer an mp3 version. Their response was why bother when all the pdas will be able to handle wavs in a couple of years anyway!

    Fortunately I can access my messages through voice mail and then later keep the recordings I want on my PC when I get home. I would be surprised if your voice mail service couldn't at least forward your calls to you so you could at least use your sprint mailbox.

    Anyway...good luck...and let me know if you find an answer to this problem.

    Wow... That's some awesome customer service. I'd tell them that, in that case, they could have my business in a couple of years (maybe).

    Thats funny to read. I was just about to ask is there a way or has the new software come out yet to upgrade our phones. The answer was right here, no they haven't so. Now I have to wait

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)Why I should worry about beta? I better stick to 4.1 verzion os on 8700g with Tmo. Because it truly satisfied me..

    I can wait for Tmo make to annconce that upgrade/update for 8700g users who go to downloading it in events..

    With the new Beta version will it allow showing a picture of the person calling you. Will it sync with outlook on the photos of people in the address book.
