    Assuming you mean Firmware (Device OS), go to your provider's link on this page. It will be listed there.

    If you mean Desktop Manager 4.2, get it here. (If you get SP2, I recommend NOT installing Media Manager).

    All that said, the 8700 series (including your 8703) has no expansion memory to save much music to, so even if it had a media player like devices that do, you'll be severely limited to the number of songs you can put on the device.

    This is super simple if you have a data plan on your BB. Go here for starters...

    4.2 is not out for the 8703e. If it was, there would be a very active thread about it here that you wouldn't be able to miss.

    It is out for Verizon. If you want to install it for say Sprint, delete the vendor file and it will install just fine.

    Where can you find the vendor file. I've looked under Advanced and then applications but couldn't find it. Any help would be great

    Once you install the update on your PC, go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader

    Then delete the vendor.xml file.
