Default Rim, What Version?

Please Login to Remove!

Sorry, not a RIM geek but wanna know what is the latest version of the desktop software that's out there and what I'm running. BlackBerry.com says

" Software For BlackBerry Desktop Software v4.2 Service Pack 2"

But the currently installed product about menu says...

"BlackBerry Desktop Manager
Version 4.2.1.8 [Jan 16 2007]"

So, thanks RIM for abandoning a consistent naming structure that would be any help to us end users, so WHICH ONE IS IT? Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2?

The dates obviously don't help really either.

Man, finding the most simple of information from RIM is IMPOSSIBLE!!

Maybe with stuff like this that's making a market for RIM's Premiere service...

Since you have made a rant I would like to rant as well.

Please place your thread in the appropriate location on the forums. This should of and will probably be moved to the Rants section.

This helps new users and old users navigate the website more efficiently.

Cheers.

Really, do I sound that bad?
Just would love to know if it's an update to what I have before I download a 300MB file.

Strange...it says I have to PAY $49.99 to get video onto my BB 8800 using the Roxio Media Manager for BlackBerry application.

(of course I can do copy the data on my own)

Video is not currently an option with the program, just lists import photos, import audio. Wow!
