Anyone having problems with the Bell theme? I have small "?" marks on my home page icon descriptions as I scroll over each item. Strange...

I had all sorts of problems trying to get the original 4.2 (in the sticky) to install on the 8707 (in the end it never worked, and so I reverted to 4.1).

Has anyone got 4.2 to work on a 8707?

Thanks.
You'll need an 8707 specific build.

I just upgraded from 4.1.x to 4.2.1. I am kind of disappointed. I noticed it takes longer time to open the menu in the email. However, the biggest disappointment is when I use ZEN theme, the rest of the applications are showed as in icons rather than the list.

How can I unlock the Vodafone and Orange themes?

Additionally, I can't find what the big differences between 4.1 vs 4.2 except

1) load pictures / ringtones via USB cable
2) Picture Caller ID
3) send voice note (like the other one said.. I have not used it yet)

So I answered my own question, but new question, so this version includes the Verizon theme, so does that mean there is a possibility of this build being expanded to CDMA sooner then we thought?

It started and then abruptly failed at 51%. I'm trying again and I'm at 46% so we'll see.

Themes are usually all included in the package, regardless of who it's being released to. It seems like anything that's ready goes in.

This is the updated BLACKBERRY.ALX file which will unlock(vendor ID lock) all theme which is available on this BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.1.126 (Chinese)

Just browse to

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8700-v4.2.1.85_P2.3.0.67

and install, unzip it first.

I did not install the original BLACKBERRY.ALX to start with so dunno how many theme it comes with, but now I get 10 theme.

Maybe a BUG I don't know...but installed this 4.2 over the other one this morning. So when I am looking at all messages, not in a separate folder, my network ID changes from "Cingular" to "Searching for Network...". Though the phone it not actually looking for a network I think that is fine, I think its just the heading. Does anyone else see the same issue? Any ideas on how to correct? Thanks in advance...

I've seen this on the 4.2.1 on the Pearl occasionally. It seems it's just a bug.

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry8700/4.2.1 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/100)

After you put the above ALX file in the correct path, did you run desktop manager again to install the.themes?
