I even tried adding the dimension today theme like this:

and i couldn't even get it to activate in the theme settings even though it was there. I see it there, and I'm rolling back to 4.1 until the today theme can be used with 4.2

a today theme is better than all the other additions?

i have tried OTA for several today themes that are supposed to be for 4.2.1 and i cannot get any of them to work...for the business users i support on BES this is huge because they love that one glance answer for calendar, missed calls, and recent emails...

Hey bro - I believe this is a new feature in 4.2 - I read about this somewhere. I kind of find it annoying too but don't know of an option to enable or disable it. Sorry

Make sure that you have the latest BlackBerry Messenger installed (v4.2.1) following the OS upgrade. If not, try reconnecting to the Desktop Manager. Launch the Application Loader, and it should prompt you to update BlackBerry Messenger.

- Hey MegaMan - good find on unlocking those themes. Do you know of any way to unlock the voicenotes feature for Sprint's 8703e?

Has anyone noticed if Bluetooth DUN is supported by the 4.2 upgrade?

- I tried opening the Sprint Mobile Connection software and it just gets stuck on 'initializing' after having the 8703e connected to my laptop. I did notice that the small arrows that show up next to the Bluetooth sign keep dropping in out. In past it used to stay constant when a connection is made. Wondering if anyone else had this prob after 4.2 on Sprint 8703e.
Thanks

If DUN and File transfers are now supported, does that mean I can transfer my phonebook to my car stereo's bluetooth kit now?

That would be exciting!

I cannot answer that one since my car's Bluetooth kit does not support phonebook transfer. Under Bluetooth Options on the 8703e with OS v4.2.1.106, there is an "Address Book Transfer" setting with values of:
  1. All Entries;
  2. Hotlist Only;
  3. Selected Catogories Only; or
  4. Disabled.
I don't recall if this was present in OS v4.1.0.377. I have not found anywhere on the device to initiate a transfer.

I miss the today theme, but I've been rolling with the Vodaphone theme (it's in the ALX file) as a temporary work-around until we find a way to get the RIM today theme on there.

4.2.1 has fixed numerous other issues for me (my BT GPS doesn't drop link now when the phone is downloading data), and there are a few apps I've been wanting to use that require 4.2+, so there's no way I'm going back to 4.1.

So has anyone with Plazmic tried making a theme and it working with 4.2/8703e? I was under the impression you could tweak the today theme also...maybe this route to get something to work?

Default HELP!! Error after install

I decided to give the 4.2 a try as I have an 8703e from Alltel. I followed the steps and it said unable to install 3rd party apps during the upgrade. I waited and viewed the phone, it had an hour glass. Then it came up and says "Blackberry Platform 2.3.0.20" and under that it says *Empty*. It still acts connected when i plug it in to the computer it makes the noise and the blackberry device manager shows me its connected, the duration, and my pin. I decided to restore to what I had but when I go into the desktop manager the Backup and Restore options are both greyed out. Any ideas! This is my only phone maybe I shouldn't have tried it.

UPDATE:
I ran loader.exe and it detected and continued installation. It said 4.2 installed successfully. I will try out and let u know the results.

The platform is correct, but it sounds as if the OS itself never loaded onto the device. My suggestion would be to load the Alltel OS v4.1 firmware using the procedures documented elsewhere on the forum:
