    i got mine from utorrent.com and it is the prerelease that was posted but got taken down . takes a while to first load but it has made my 8700r feel like a new berry . the best upgrade i have done . i was running 4.2 but just some many little things that make 4.5 the one to have plus it is the LAST upgrade for the 87xx .

    Yeah the 4.5 beta for the 8700 was well worth the upgrade. Now with the 2.5 bis upgrade I have full html email on this "old" phone. Thing feels new again. Has actually put me off upgrading for the time being. Recomended for anyone with this phone.

    Which version of 4.5 are you running? I have not seen anything about a .46 for the 8700. I am still on 4.2, and would love to upgrade to 4.5 at some point, but I was curious whether there has been anything since .37 (which I was a bit late to the party to find).

    I got 4.5.0.37 for the 8700 and it is indeed beautiful for this device. You can't do much media-wise on it, but still, a great upgrade for the old gangsta!!

    I have 4.5.0.36 but am having a problem. I can't make calls (says only emergency calls only) and I can create a new sms (not even an option in the menu). When the device loads up there is something there about enterprise but not sure since it disappears real quick. Can anyone help? PLease....I have a 8700r

    Im still new to the site so I'm not sure if these questions have been asked or not but here goes; when is the 4.5 os for the 8700g coming out? & Can anyone upload the one they have so that those of us who haven't jumped on it yet have some fun with it too?

    Hi All,

    I just did some hunting on Google and came up with a link for the 8700f. It was posted on a couple other sites that they have used this on the 8700c. Does anyone know if this will work on the 8700c?

    Well I have completed the update to 4.5. There were a few complications but nothing too serious. The worst thing was upgrading the desktop manager. It was being a little ignorant but computers are like that. I would strongly suggest upgrading. There are some nice new features

    From what I can tell they have just made it a little prettier. There are some new options on how to display messages and the address book. The main feature that I liked the best was the integration of a spell check. That made it worth the upgrade to me.

    Thank You
    You have to uninstall ALL your previous BlackBerry software before you can do the update to 4.5. Seeing that 4.5 does not come with BBDM 5, I can see this as being your issue.
