| | Not looking good for Sprint 8830 WE users

I just finished a phone conversation with a Sprint technical support person asking when the Sprint's version of 4.5 is to be released. This is what was said to me... "Sprint is releasing 4.5 software in the future for newer Blackberry Phones." Astonished at this comment I asked directly... Are you saying Sprint is NOT releasing a OS 4.5 version for owners of the BB 8830 WE? His reponse to me was... "There are no plans to release 4.5 for the 8830 and earlier version of Blackberry phones from Sprint." I sat here at my desk momentarily stunned by this revelation. Once the information sunk in I thanked the tech guy for entertaining my questions and hung up. All I can say is Yikes! Unless, he is horribly mistaken (and he did not sound like someone who was incompetent) or that's it. No 4.5 for Sprint 8830 WE users. I hope he is absolutely wrong and we are pleasantly surprised but I am not counting on it. I do regret having to be the one to share this. Suddenly, the Storm and Bold are looking better to me.
When it gets to tough for the rest that's when it's just right for me. - Author Unknown
