I would really like to d/l the new 4.2 OS (mainly because it will work with my TomTom PLUS services to get updated traffic, which is nightmare in Atlanta) but my companies IT dept recommends me not doing it. I have no idea why but it is what it is. They tell me to wait until Cingular releases the software because they will not support the foriegn version. I pay for the service and I paid for the phone but I am on BES so they have control (I assume).
So I call Cingular. Well, you can probably guess what they tell me. "Cingular has no plans to release the 4.2 software for the 8700c....but the new 8800 and 8100's have the 4.2 software".
Why would Cingular release the new 4.2 when they are trying to get people to buy the new phones (8800 and 8100)? My guess is they probably won't release the new software...not any time soon anyway.
Has anyone heard anything about Cingular possibly releasing this software? I looked all over the net and don't see anything on it....only on blackberry.com.
So, I guess I'm screwed.
