    no you dont loose anything. make sure you do a back up before updating. you can always resend your service books.

    Be sure to do a complete device backup with DM before upgrading.
    See this thread for OS upgrade:

    well i was about to upgrade , but it clearly states that i will have to reactivate my serices wireleslsly once the upgrade has completed .
    so i guess i will lose my service books.

    "Warning , after completing the loading operation, you must activate your device wirelessly to continue to send and recieve messages and use other blackberry services" that what it says word for word on the application loader wizard

    Re: upgrade 4.1 to 4.2

    if you are on a BES and are updating your BB to 4.2 from a computer other then the computer/oulook thats attached to the BES your IT guy will have to reactivate your BB on the BES. that means he will resend the Password to remotley activate your BB. I updated my 8703e to 42 from my home computer because my work/outlook computer does not have desk top manager installed. It was a huge hassle to reactivate on our BES and I ended up downgrading to 41 and have left it that way. had to wipe my handheld just to get 41 back on. I don't think 42 has much benefits for the 8703's IMHO. By the way I did resend the service books from my BIS and my personal email worked fine. Just could'nt get the BES to activate 42.
