Default running OS 4.3 on a 7290

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 7290 which is running the latest 4.1 OS. However I have to test some software that will only run on 4.3 and above.

Does anyone know if the 7290 can run 4.3 and if so where I can get hold of it.

I have a 7290 too. AFAIK the latest OS is 4.1. You can't even get 4.2, let alone 4.3.

I guess the best bet is to buy a used handset from Ebay for your testing.
