    **Sniff sniff** still no os 4.2 available on Tmo for the 8700g.

    Re: OS 4.2 - New Features and Functionality Improvements

    Don't expect OS 4.2 for the 8700 for another few months (likely closer to the end of the year).

    Confirmed handhelds receiving OS 4.2: 8100, 8700, 8703e, 8707, 8800, 7130, 7130e

    Confirmed previous generation not receiving OS 4.2: 7100, 7100i, 7250, 7290, 7520

    OS 4.2 for the 8700 currently has a lot of rather annoying bugs, although it is functional.

    If you have any questions, I'll try to answer. Just do not request the OS and do not ask for release dates - it'll save everyone a whole lot of time.

    I will expand on my original post below, concerning the 8700 only:

    QUITE useful for BlackBerry beginners; from a help desk point of view, this could potentially be the biggest benefit added in OS 4.2

    No ability to save these; can MMS these to contacts (perhaps a bug) - not really seeing the usefulness in this, but c'est la vie.

    Apparently no support for the 8700 (or 8800), as mentioned in previous threads/posts (elsewhere, possibly here) by myself

    Just an updated version; nothing new, visually, from what I can tell

    Present and accounted for; expect future distiller updates for BES to include support for MP3 and AMR file types as well; MMS shows support for 3GPP video, although attempts in retrieval failed (this is the only mentioning of video support, thus far)
