| | Maximum Software Versions for 8700r? (both Desktop Manager & Handheld)
Please Login to Remove!
I'm fairly new to the 8700r, and I was wondering if someone could please tell me what the maximum software versions (both the desktop manager and handheld software) are that I can use for this particular berry?
It was preloaded with 4.1, but it was freezing on me regularly so I installed the software specific to my network (Rogers) through BlackBerry.com. However, then I started getting error messages letting me know that certain connections aren't allowed by my IT policy. The thing is, these worked just fine with the preloaded software.
So... I figure it's because I downloaded the "Rogers" software packages that this was limited on me, so I want to download the standard versions through blackberry.com now but first I need to find out what the maximum software versions are that I can use so that I don't toast my berry trying to install software that isn't compatible.
I've seen some sites that make it sound like v4.1 (handheld software) is the max version for the 8700r, but the Rogers version that was available for me to download was v4.2.2, and it installed and worked fine for the most part. And then there's v4.3, which is what I'd really like to use, but I'm not sure if I'll kill the blackberry trying to install it.
