    Has Verizon released OS 4.2 for the 8703e yet? I haven't been able to find anything anywhere that says they have.

    No they haven't and no plans for it since the 8703e is scheduled for end of life soon.

    End of life already? How long has it been out? Maybe my office is just a little behind. :-)

    Audit01 - where did you hear the 8703e is scheduled for end of life??? I got my 8703e this summer from my carrier which is Telus here in Canada.

    Another reason I find it hard to believe is that our federal government here in Canada just awarded Telus Mobility a multi-year contract to supply 8703e BBS to government employees (previous contract was held by Rogers). The the guys and girls where I am on contract (in a gov. dept.) have all been assigned an 8703e - they had to hand in their old BB which was supplied by Rogers in order to be given their new 8703e.

    I cant see our federal goverment signing a long term contract and finding out a year later they can not get support for the 8703e because they are no longer available.

    In my case, I love my 8703e and dont know how I lived without it.

    Verizon is getting ready to dump it. I heard this right from VZW before I dumped them as my provider.
