    Is there a lot of change or just a little from 4.1 SP1?

    It will support the new multi media functions and also make switching devices easier. Check it out here:

    Not unless you have OS 4.2 which is still AWOL.

    Re: RIM has posted Desktop Software v4.2

    Installing Desktop 4.2 obviosuly doesn't enable the media transfer for non-OS 4.2 devices, but has anyone tried the Switch Device Wizard? I have a pristine 7290 with an active sim sitting in my deskdrawer, but I don't have time to try it now.

    Does anyone know how it will work? Does it have to go through an enterprise activation for the new pin if you're on a BES? This could be a big feature for those who get an 8100 for the weekends, but prefer a full keyboard during the work week. As for me, I prefer the suretype to the full keyboard, so I don't see a personal use for this.

    BTW...

    When you get to that page on the link, go to the very bottom where it says "Download Blackberry Desktop Software" and click the link....4.2 will be in the pull down box.

    Question Re: RIM has posted Desktop Software v4.2

    what about the device OS? i'm a Cingular customer, and new to Blackberry, and can't seem to find the device upgrade that would allow me to use the new Media Manager. Help?

    Using a 8700c btw.

    Re: RIM has posted Desktop Software v4.2

    Fournier - Welcome to the Stacks! Currently, OS 4.2 (which is needed to use the new media manager) has not been released for ANY device. When the 8100 is released next week, it will run OS 4.2, but I've seen nothing about when it will be released for the 8700.

    Smile Re: RIM has posted Desktop Software v4.2

    thanks for the welcome! (and the info) seems kind of silly for them to release the desktop software without releasing a corresponding device upgrade... but then again, i'm still bitter that my 8700 isn't recognized on my Win XP Pro (x64) Desktop OS. This is my first BlackBerry, and i'm not sure i'm impressed by RIM's device support. I may go back to Palm after my contract is up.
