    Thumbs up its pretty cool

    i did it it worked flawlessly i can send and receve files with bluetooth and it is now recognized by desktop 4.5s media manager which it did not do before it is all and all awesome also you can no longer unlock the key board with the scroll whee alone which i actually like better you have to press * talk to unlock the only thing i will miss is i did like the old stlye list themes but i will get over it with my fancy new old blackberry it is as close to a curve as an 8700 will get
    ps for those who care also added voice notes which is pretty cool for the forgetfull people who dont want to take the time to type a memo

    Works perfectly on my friend's 8700g on T-Mobile. I can't believe how much of a face lift 4.5 gives that phone.

    Question Odd problem since upgrade

    I did the upgrade and am really happy with it! BUT I believe i've lost my mind, i cannot figure out how to rearrange my applications or even hide some of them. I'm sure i'm just missing it but any insight would be of great assistance.

    I received my blackberry from my IT department, who set it up for me. It's running 4.2.1.96 and I'd like to update it. Does anyone know whether this will erase all my email settings? And if so, can I put my work email back on with just my username and password? (Or do I need some special Enterprise password or some other IT-department-only information?)

    Thanks!
