    Verizon now appears to have the download for OS 4.3 for the 8130! I can not confirm b/c I am not a VZW customer, but if you are, just go to their download page for Blackberry and click on the 8130 and enter your phone number. I would think if you own a pearl and know a VZW phone number, you could download it and try it on your Pearl. Let us all know if it works.

    Go to Blackberry.com, click on support, downloads, device and desktop software, carrier websites, North America, Verizon, Upgrade now, continue, then select the 8130. I just checked and it is still there.

    Can't wait to get the VZW customers first impressions of the new OS. I'm jealous.

    Doesn't the new pearl come with the new OS?

    Yes, it does, but anyone with the old Pearl should be able to download the new OS and install on their devices, just have to delete the vendor file.

    Don't think that will work. 8130 uses Suretype and the OS will be tailored around that.

    seems there is no comparable upgrade on the "PocketMac" end. Does this mean it is not compatible and I shouldn't upgrade? Does anyone know?

    Skip, no, it does not mean that.

    Do you have the 8130 or the 8830? Your profile says 8830, and there is no OS v4.3 for the 8830 as of this time.
