    Re: 4.2 software for 8700 finally out!

    Tried it on my old 8700c. As I suspected, it breaks the free Plazmic themes, which are apparently hard coded to 4.1 or lower. Sucks, since I really like Wave Icon. Be nice if I could download it to my PC and adjust it so it would work with 4.2...

    Also noticed the browser was not rendering text properly. I may try it on another 8700 so I can get a screenshot of what it looked like. All the encoding and language options looked correct, which is odd. I did notice the newer browser seemed faster when returning to previously visited pages though.

    Didn't notice any real speed difference vs 4.1.0.377, which I've rolled back to.
    It doesn't record video. Get over it.

    Re: 4.2 software for 8700 finally out!

    Hmm. Interesting. I loaded another 8700c with 4.2 and the browser issue was gone. Only differences between the two cards were the SIM cards (my old device has an AT&T blue SIM, the other has a Cingular SIM), and my device had all my data & apps still on it.

    4.2 still blocks the free themes though. Bummer.
    Bluetooth ringtone transfer worked ok. The 8700 sounds quieter than my 8800, but I think it's a bit faster...

    I'll play more tomorrow.

    Does the 4.2 gives us the features of the pearl without the microSD? What are the benefits to upgrade?

    Re: 4.2 software for 8700 finally out!

    Alright guys... Big Question here... Obviously theirs only like 2 themes to use on this 4.2 for the 8700... My ? is... Plazmic's 4.1 8700 theme builder obviously doesn't work for 4.2.... so I tried to make an 8100 theme in 4.2 to upload into the 8700 thinking it would read with the same OS, but it didn't. It loaded, just doesn't work on the 8700 theme cause it's an 8100 theme. In the Plazmic 4.2 only 8100 options are available... so it comes down to...

    Does plazmic have an upgrade to make 4.2 OS themes for the 8700?!

    If anyone knows that'd be great... this factory theme is driving me FREAKIN NUTTS!!!
    Thanks! -Crystal.

    I was under the impression that the 4.2 OS was to support Voice Dailing. That's a big let down. I'm with Melissa on the seperation of email, and sms. That's just as important as the seperation of church and state for me and was happy to find that option in "options".
