    Nintendo, if you want to revert back to 4.1...uninstall ver 4.2 os from your puter and install ver 4.1 OS...open up DM and run aplication loader, it should detect it and ask you if you want to install the older software version. Hope that helps.

    I've been running the 4.2.1.94 from Vodafone on my 8700c without so much as a hicupp for the past week. Is there any real advantage to installing this one? I'm downloading it now so I have it should I decide to install it. If the consensus at the stack says it's better, then I'll give it a shot!

    anyone detected any bluetooth issues for this? only 4.2.66 works so far with all my btooth...

    edit: additionally, is anyone having issues with the backlight on this version? its lights up fine on auto, but when i select a brightness using the power button, only one of the three settings provides a lit screen...

    Re: New 4.2 Os From At&t 8700!!!!!! 4.2.1.96 (GSM Device ONLY)

    installed it during the weekend. this is the first 4.2 OS i installed. i'm liking it. wasnt able to do wireless enterprise activation though because the bes administrator didnt give me a password. now im in the office but it still wouldnt go through the enterprise activation process when connected to the server. hmmm... with previous bb's i had, it automatically does this thru the DM when connected to the server.
    i like:
    >the ability to assign different colors for email and sms
    >picture caller id
    >transfer pictures/audio direct between pc and bb
    >switch applications from clickwheel menu (instead of alt+click)
    >bb messenger direct from messages
    >bb messenger messages also appear on email message list (but there's an option to turn this off)
    >nice bb messenger message icon on the home screen
    >bigger clock
    >mp3 player >>> cool!
    >custom ringtone for different contacts
    >voice note (but only for sending as mms, can i save a voicenote?)
    >option to turn off bluetooth led indicator
    >send memo notes via sms, mms, email or pin

    dont like:
    >still cant send files to the pc via bluetooth
    >the grid setup of the applications screen (i liked the popup menu from the 4.1 zen theme)
    >applications button only works when in the home screen
    >click+unlock doesnt work

    i have the internet browser but i lost the wap and bb browsers. even after registering HRT. although both are listed in the service books already (they are also included in the options for default browser settings screen), their icons wont show up in the applications screen.

    generally, im happy with it. thanks.

    Re: New 4.2 Os From At&t 8700!!!!!! 4.2.1.96 (GSM Device ONLY)

    Ok just finished upgrading. I also unlocked the vendor files so I have more themes! I'm hoping this OS runs more smoothly than the other 4.2 I was using because I noticed it lagged a bit. Only downside I can see right now is that you still cannot unlock the phone by only using the trackwheel like with OS 4.1...you still need to do * send key. I hope they fix that soon!!

    not sure if that is a bug or a change in design that is going to stay that way...

    @pequero: options > security options > general settings. you can find there "Message Background Colors" for "Enterprise Messages" and "Other Messages"

    i also noticed that its faster in searching for messages as well as the "delete prior" messages.
    oh i also like that the PIN messages are red in the messages list. i use the zen theme and set to separate email/sms. i can now easily recognize email from PIN messages.

    anybody else has the problem about enterprise activation? can this b resolved?

    Re: New 4.2 Os From At&t 8700!!!!!! 4.2.1.96 (GSM Device ONLY)

    OK, I downloaded it, and it's fine. I didn't unlock any vendors. Is that a problem? If I need to do this, do I simply unlock it, then go through the process of upgrading to 4.2 again? Sorry if this question is dumb. I'm new to this...

    Also, I see nothing in my security options>general settings that says "message background colors". Am I missing that too?

    Thanks!

    The message background color change might only be for BES users. Don't think it works for us on BIS. I don't see that option on my BB either.
