idealist, does this mean you can reconnect without having to restart your 8700??
(That would be EXCELLENT news because according to ggoodale, the other people using an 8700 with the OS 4.2 upgrade are reporting they need to restart [by removing the battery] every time they want to reconnect).
Please let me know, since maybe you are leaving out that you need to restart? This would be a great help for me deciding whether to upgrade to 4.2.
