    Hey everyone, I bought a used BB 8700c on Ebay the other day and it should be here Wednesday.

    I was just wondering what I need to do to set it up, I'm only getting the data cable, no software....

    I know i need BB desktop, does that also contain the drivers for my BB??

    What are the steps I should take to get this thing running clean (I want to do a factory reset as well)

    thanks again!

    Definetly get 4.3. I was using 4.2.2 and I started having all kinds of problems. 4.3 rocks!!
    As far as installing themes and stuff, just unzip them by right clicking the zip file and select unzip. Then open DM and select add programs. If it's compatible wit your device then it will install. To install ringtones and wallpapers use the Media option in the DM.

    To wipe the handheld (factory reset) go to otions, security options > General settings > hit menu key and select wipe handheld.

    The Desktop Manager can be downloaded from here:-

    BlackBerry - Desktop Software - BlackBerry Desktop Software at BlackBerry.com
