    The only device that can upgrade to 4.2 Handheld OS at the moment is the 8100 Blackberry.

    For the 7100r you can install BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.1.0.379:

    Jonny:

    Although the 7100r can easily run 4.1 OS, don't expect too much from it.

    I had my 7100r when they first came out....under 3.8 OS.

    As I kept upgrading the OS, the 7100r got just a bit slower each time.

    Expect a long boot time (~ 5 min), and if you attempt to load themes other than the default, expect a spinning hourglass each time you get the theme to do something new.

    Not trying to turn you off, but just trying to keep it realistic for you.

    Quite true Lewis! I had my 7105t running on 4.1.0.379, and man was it slow! Especially running the zen theme! Everytime I switched themes, and then went into a menu or something, it was an hour glass for a minute or so...

    Don't be surprised if 4.2 doesn't become available for any device other than the 64Mbyte devices.
