    3) I cannot get rid of the setup wizard and hide icons in the Zen theme.
    4) where is the PTT everyone has been saying will be so great.

    Overall i am not very happy with the funcionality of the 4.2 OS. There is only 3 themes and the suck. Does anyone have any ideas what is going on? If i cant get it fixed I will just go back to 4.1 and wait until TMO releases the 4.2.
    1. i don't have any problems with this issue so i don't know what exactly to tell you about that
    2. You might need to clear out apps you don't use, phone logs and your message folder.
    3. press alt and click track wheel in and you should see the option to hide icons.
    4. PTT is only available on certain carriers. currently TMO does not support that feature.
    As far as themes, I have 3 that i d/l to my phone an they work. I just did it by a trial and error basis. some of them will work, some won't.
    when i die, i'm gonna go to bb heaven!

    4.ptt is available to only those that have cingular/att to my knowledge.
    3. set your cursor/highlight over the icon click the alt key and wheel to move/hide/etc icons.

    I have 8700c and have noticed that the att theme is a little faster then the zen theme but have not experienced any of the other problems you have

    and when i hit go i get an error saying PGP Email Library cant be loaded because net.rim.ecmascript isnt available.....running a 8703e...any suggestions?
    The 4.2 OS isn't designed for cdma phones. If anyone can rewrite the code-awesome, but I don't think its open source.

    Browse to ringtones in the media manager, Preloaded ringtones. Click, view Thimbnails. I get a hourglass permanently displayed.

    Also an uncaught exception:java.lang.ClassCastException if I try and play Alarm_Antelope.mid...

    Anyone else able to reproduce this?

    Loving the update so far. My browser seems zippier. I love the integrated contact pics! I hate the themes. You can give each email account its own notifier, fantastic! There are several new ringtones and notifiers. I haven't been able to use the desktop media manager yet. All third party apps are working fine. Now, if only there were more themes... Two quick questions:
    1) do i need to convert my midi files to mp3?
    2) can I edit the alx file to get my other themes back?
    Don't let the number of posts fool you...

    Definitely noticed this again! When I reset my device, about 5 minutes later, one of my contacts called and it came up with just a number - no name. When I looked in the phone app after hanging up, all the history was gone. About 3 minutes after that, the history was back and callers from my address book were recognized again...

    I installed the new OS to my BB but I noticed there is no browser on my phone now? Anyone else experience that? Where can I get the browser?
