Default Can you upgrade Sprint's 8703e to firmware 4.2?

Please Login to Remove!

I searched around on the bb website, they didnt have it avail for sprint. Is this a carrier disabled thing, or what?

I am trying to get a version of the firmware that allows me to JOIN incoming calls together. My buddies and their "cool" att versions can do this.

Would an upgrade work? Are there any real carrier specific firmwares, or should any version work with any carrier?

Can I ask any more stupid questions?

Right at the top of the 8700 forum page is a sticky thread for the location of the latest 8703 handheld OS. 4.2.1...

Good luck.

the upgrade works WONDERFULLY for Sprint. I did it and I'm super happy with the changes in the new OS upgrade! And it looks better too.
