    Re: 4.2 8700 update

    Big time ouch. Was really counting on that. Oh well. Can still keep the fingers crossed. It certainly would be nice to get, from RIM, either

    1) an official "we are having so-and-such problems", or

    2) We anticipate a tentative 'X' date release.

    If a beta version goes floating around, people are naturally going to be curious. Add in the vested interest people have about not upgrading from a fairly new device and it's easy (to me) to see why the impatience to know exists.

    That being said, I knew these risks when I chose the 8700 over the Pearl and I will certainly live with my decision either way.

    Re: 4.2 8700 update

    Agreed. I knew the risks when going with the 8700. However, I figured it was only a matter of time before the RIM OS cought up with the media capabilities of the Intel XScale processor (for the 8700.)

    Oh well...I will try to remain hopeful.

    Re: 4.2 8700 update

    I'm using the beta version of 4.2 on my 8700, and it is buggy, so before you all get excited about a release let RIM work their magic. They either will, or will not release 4.2 for our series.

    Some of the bugs I've noticed with 4.2OS:

    1. Battery Indicator sometimes shows, most often not
    2. BBMessenger: uncaught exceptions/null pointer exceptions/closing out when typing in pin#'s and website addresses.
    3. Browser hang ups
    4. Email: sometimes, sometimes not.
    5. MMS & SMS Texting hangs up, get the clock for 15-20 min at a time when sending, but still receive during that time period.
    6. Media: This is where all your pictures are stored, you now have the ability to make folders to store pictures in their own categories.. but moving them.. PITA.. and sometimes, they go back to main Media file, especially after a battery pull... can't use Media Manager on Blackberry DM 4.2!

    Anyway, those are just a few that I've noticed. So RIM's got some work to do if they do anything at all for the 8700 series..

    Re: 4.2 8700 update

    IMHO- the issue for me is not just upgrading- it is the fact that the 8700 series has all this hidden potential that was never realized/utilized.

    If you can explain to me how the 8700 is obsolete, then by all means it's time to upgrade, but if there is still some juice that hasn't been tapped...WTF!?!?! seriously. RIM would be doing a great injustice by simply tossing in the towel and giving up on this one.

    Seriously folks how many of us have-

    - Maxed out the ram, overclocked the processors or upgraded the HD on a PC??

    - Upgraded the speaker system or switched to Monster cables on our stereo systems??

    - polished and put a new heel on an expensive pair of shoes????

    You just don't toss an item cause another one becomes available.

    AM I MAKING ANY SENSE?????
