    Verizon does not show 4.5 as an option for the BB 8830 World Edition.

    The Sprint build of 4.2.2.196 has a different Platform code (3.0.0.85) than the other providers. It fixes the data drop issues experienced on the Sprint Network. I believe another carrier (can't remember which) also used the same Platform version as Sprint. Tata Indicom has Platform 3.0.0.87. The other providers have either 3.0.0.81 or 3.0.0.84.

    Is DM 4.7 the latest release for all carriers? I'm presently using 4.3 with Verizon.

    Although not all US Carriers link to it from their sites, 4.7 is the latest desktop manager available from RIM.

    However it has proven to be a bit buggy and 4.6 is currently a more often recommended update....

    I there going to be any problems if I upgrade my 8830 to the newest os if my carrier is not listed. I know it is possible but I am also on BES. Am I going to experience problems after updating?

    VZW is my carrier. I am still running 4.2.x on my 8830. Can I install the latest version of the Desktop Manager to use with my BB?

    Yes, you can use Desktop Manager v4.7 with 4.2 Verizon 8830. I find it a bit slow, so you may want to run 4.6...

    Thumbs up OFFICIAL Release 4.5.0.127 for 8830 (Bell Mobility)

    App Version 4.5.0.127 (177)
    Platform 3.4.0.20

    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...646D38BC2145CA
    Select "BlackBerry® 8830 World Edition smartphone" from drop-down menu.

    I have it running on my VZW 8830 (just deleted Vendor.xml file to install). It appear to solve both the speakerphone blast and the full-screen Media app issues experienced with OS v4.5.0.101 -- memory management appears to be better, too (no major leaks so far, and more device memory to begin with [about an extra MB or so as compared to .101])!
