I think the connection issue must be on your end. I just downloaded the BB Desktop 4.2.2 (SP2) in about a minute.

How did it work out? I think it took me something like under an hour. Nothing like a minute or two. I wasn't too unhappy as I used to be on dial-up for the longest time. Lots of patience. DSL is screaming by my standards.

Oh yeah it is much faster now. They must have been doing some website work this past week. Takes about 30 min @ 136K/sec on Optimum Online.
