Just leave it to him to prove some one is wrong. But I have to say he has always come through for me.

Default John - Great info, thank you. Does this 8800sw work on the 8703e?

3. Delete vendor.xml from your PC's hard drive located in c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader

*Note: Step 3 is not always necessary but ensures that the OS will install on any brand of 8800 (currently Cingular's is all that's available)

4. Plug in BB and Open Desktop Manager. You will be prompted to upgrade.

Does this 8800 4.2 download work on the Verizon 8703e? I'm willing to try, but I don't want to blast my phone if I don't have to. Thanks!

Damn. Do you know of any way to get the 4.2 OS for the 8703? I have a BES contract with BB & even they can't tell me. The link on (vzw-dot-smithmicro-dot-com/blackberry) was supposed to updated months ago, but I guess they want to sell the 8800 before allowing 4.2 on old devices. ??

Thanks for the reply.

Thanks for the reply.
What their reasoning behind what they release and sell when and where is completely up to them. There's no one here that can accurately speak on their behalf.

As to your question of "can you get it for your 87XX series, the answer, at present, is "no". There's no way to get it, and there's no way for us to get it for you. Sorry.

Yes. This is the original build. It was was came on the Cingular 8800's at the time of the release. This is not a new thread or build of software.
