    My 8830 still has OS 4.2.2.196. Should I upgrade? If so what should I upgrade to? I cannot play youtube videos or install Pandora and I am inclined to believe this is due to my OS. Let me know, you all know a lot more than I do about these things. Thanks,

    I had 4.2.x for many years on my 8830 and upgraded a few months back. It is a worthy upgrade. Just make sure u backup and follow directions outlined, plenty of help on this forum.

    The only think I missed was the call timer. This disappeared for some reason and never came back in the upgrades I did.

    Also never thought I used it, but I do when I'm a long call, I do glance at the timer... Or I should say I used to glance at the timer!!

    But the other benefits are worth the upgrade like html email, youtube, etc...

    Thanks, I downloaded the OS and desktop software. When you say back it up you mean using the Backup tool on the desktop software correct? If so I did that today as well, I am going to attempt the upgrade tomorrow.... Thanks,
