I just downloaded the 4.5 Desktop Manager from the Blackberry .com site.
I use Verizon for my 8330, and they have not rolled out the new OS .
My question: Will I now beable to download Dataviz? My 8330 still says " Version 4.3
I would guess that I would not be able to get any of the advantages of 4.5 until Verizon offers it to subscribers.\
According to your post, since the new DM is not from carrier, do I have to delete the vendor xml file? If I do not, what are the disadvantages? My Curve seems to be working OK so far (I have synched and no problems.
Thanks for your help

By Dataviz are you meaning Documents to Go. That is the biggest advantage to 4.5 over 4.3. Other than that many users haven't noticed as big of a difference from 4.3 to 4.5 as they have from 4.2 to 4.5.
4.3 came mainly on the CDMA devices like the 8330 and the 8130 because they came out after the 8120 and the 8320.
If you are really wanting Documents to go you might want to install another carrier's OS, just make sure it is for your device. Verizon is known for releasing OS's well after everyone else.

Thank you for replying. I've downloaded 4.5 Desktop Manager without media Manager. but when I've connected my 8300 Curve to 4.5 Desktop Manager, it has not asked me for any upgrade to OS 4.5
I would like to know How I can proceed.

You have only downloaded one of the software pieces you need. You have downloaded the 4.5 Desktop Manager, you still need to download the 4.5 Handheld OS. Here is the download link for the 8300. https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code
It is for TIM Italy, it is fine to download on your device you will just need to delete the vendor.xml file located here on your computer C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader. Let me know if you have any questions. One thing to remember when you do this download is to make sure you check documents to go it is unchecked in the install by default. If you have any problems with this install let me know.
