    Im deciding to switch my number over to my sprint 8703e and see on RIMs site that 4.2 is the newest OS and just want to confirm that??? Also i see 2 different choices on the RIM site for the sprint 8703e. They are 8703e(TM) and 8703e(wireless handheld TM). So i just want to know which i should be choosing to update my device??? If someone could get back to me at their earliest id greatly appreciate it thanks.

    Thanx rlp i appreciate it. Im assuming that the standard (TM) is the one i go with and not the handheld. I guess ill give that one a shot tom morning. Really wish they would make a 4.3 or even a 4.5 OS for the 8703. I know its been around for awhile but its one of my favorite devices ever made. A 4.5 OS update would be golden IMO, but who knows what the future could bring. Thanx again.

    They would be the same. If you download sprint and going to use on a verzon device all you do is go to c:/prgram files/common files/research in motion/app loader and delete the file "vendor.xml" Then install the OS .

    If you can find a verizon 4.5, post a link please because I didn't think it had even been leaked yet
