    Yes there are some members who have a copy. Because it has not been officially released by RIM, it would be illegal for them to send/share with anyone. Regardless of how they managed to get a hold of it themselves.

    Tate002, you may already know this but I'm going to say/type it anyway...Your 8800 comes with 4.2, this thread is discussing a software upgrade for older handhelds (specifically the 8700 and 7130.)

    So with the 4.2 os version, there will be PTT application? So this is a fact that it is comming out? or is this a rumor?

    Has been speculation, hearsay, and dreams.

    N8DBB's post definitely seems to solidify things though.

    The word is, if released, PTT may work with Cingular's 8700

    Thank you ericaj and mistadobolin for replies.

    I found a chap here on pinstack who had used 4.2 on his 8700. Apparently the center convenience key becomes the default menu button as and the one press of the trackwheel brings up a full menu. So it doesn't need a double tap like a pearl.

    So feature wise I look forward to the 4.2 official release.

    I didn't find out how much space the new OS took though. He said he never looked. Oh well. Maybe I will find someone who is still using it. After all what use is a new OS if you end up with only <8mb free.
