On the drop down menu scroll past the Desktop Software and go to Blackberry 8700c. You have to scroll down past all the Desktop Software.

If you have a 8700 for AT&T or Cingular it will be the 8700c. The c stands for Cingular, which is now AT&T.

Re: Please RIM, give us the new 4.5 OS!

I have the greatest of doubts we will be seeing the new 4.5 OS for a while.  I am betting you will have to buy a new device to get it and the 9000 will not be out for months.  With all the new features of 4.5 unless RIM fixes the leaks it will be a disaster on current devices.  The new 9000 will have more memory so it will work better with sloppy OS code but not our current devices!

Just wait and see how long the CDMA users will have to chew on glass before we get 4.5...
