    Wouldn't it just be the same steps you followed to upgrade to 4.5?

    Go to Sprint - Software Downloads - Select your device type select your device, and you should find the 4.3 O/S there.

    I believe the 4.3 ROM is bundled with the Blackberry Desktop software.

    all you have the to do is download 4.3 from sprint. load it on your pc, connect your phone, and it will do the rest! you dont have to wipe the phone or anything.

    I also need to downgrade back to 4.3, but I tried the above listed links and the file is corrupt. Does anyone have 4.3 for the 8330 laying around?

    The problems that I am having is that no matter how many times I call "voice Mail" the icon will not clear, plus BBM is not working now. It did before I upgraded.

    I was wondeirng the same thing, i have a sprint BB 8330 on the newest OS, i need to downgrade it so i can get the SPC from it. I downloaded all of the OS on the Blackberry website for sprint 8330 older OS, but the BB manager does not recoginize those OS to be compatible with the phone. I went to the sprint/nextel site to get the OS, but they only offer the newest OS now. Can somone please let me know where i can get the older version of the oS?
    thanks
