    upgraded 8703e to 4.2, now some Q's

    Advertisement



    Hey every1 returning to the fourms after my old BB broke about a year ago (forgot my username lol) so I loaded 4.2 from verizon on my sprint phone and love it. I can send/recieve ringtones via bluetooth, use bphone theme etc. Only problem is that since its the os for verizon gps doesn't work! Is there ne workaround for this or do I have to wait for sprint 4.2 for internal gps to work again?

    reload BBMaps, it should be fine afterward.

    Yep. That's what I did and it worked like a charm.

    Only problem I had was that I had to update to the new version of BB Maps. I lost the icon on my desktop for it, and it works great. Now I have to wait for Sprint to get off of there keister to get us one.

    So is it worth upgrading? A lot of stuff I read said that it doesn't perform well.

    You see a little bit of slowdown using the Zen theme, but it's definitely worth upgrading. I love Media Manager and the Zen theme focusing on a picture versus icons.
    Definitely worth upgrading Captain!

    I upgraded my Sprint 8703e to 4.2 last night, and it works fine. It is definitely a little slower, but now I can use it with my TomTom Go 910 for the advanced features. It's a temporary "hey that's cool" thing that will wear off, but it's almost like getting a new phone without spending the money.

    I'm still trying to figure out how to transfer files using BT (Vista, Microsoft stack).

    Definitely worth it. I love the zen theme, and the Roxio media manager for transferring pictures.

    It's a cute app, but also broken. I put in my street address and it's not even close. BB Maps is showing me about a 1/2 mile north of where I really am. Even Google can do better than that.

    1: from the icon screen, choose the icon you want to move, hold the alt key and press the thumb wheel in, choose move icon.

    2: Check this thread for vendor codes: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...or_themes.html
