    Advertisement



    [FONT=Times New Roman]Hi- I have an 8703e. I downloaded desktop manager 4.2, can I download 4.2 for my device? If so, where can I get it? As I understand it, it’s more for the Pearl, but maybe I can use some other features on my current BB.[/FONT]

    Sorry. No 4.2 for 8700 series.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    That should say, sorry, no 4.2 for any BlackBerry, except for the Pearl. And, no 4.1 for the Pearl.

    Hi everyone,

    New here and new to blackberry. I love it thus far and am just getting to know how capable it is.. I need some help though. Quick background, I was given my blackberry as a gift from a friend who decided he didn't like it. He ONLY gave me the phone and charger. I have downloaded the 4.2 software on my desktop and see there is no 4.2 for the device. My device has 4.1 installed. When I try and transfer files computer tells me that my device needs 4.2. SHould I remove 4.2 and download 4.1??? Any help is appreciated as I don't even have a user guide. Links would be great as well. Thanks in advance.

    You can not transfer files with any device but the 8100 Pearl using DM, even with 4.1 os and 4.1 DM.

    You can view a user guide foryour device by going to: www.mobile.blackberry.com with your BB browser

    Jason Tyler, Welcome to PinStack.

    I agree with dfc, but you don't have to revert to DM 4.1, I use DM 4.2 all the time. Just don't expect it to work with the 4.2 OS specific functions, like Media Manager.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with your BB.

    4.2 may come out for the 8700 BlackBerry at some point in time, so the day may come when you can have it. We just don't know when.

    By using the web browser. Put the file somewhere like yahoo briefcase, gmail, etc and download it.
