Happy New Year! Hope 2010 will be a better year than 2009.
I have a BB 8703e with core applications and system software version 4.1. Can I and how would I get to update/upgrade to version 4.2 at least?
Thanks for your help.

The carriers release the device OS for their users -- since they are responsible for support, it is their choice to release a version to their users. You can find their download site via this portal:
In all cases, you should take a manual backup before proceeding:
Then follow your carriers instructions for installation (found on their DL site above).
If you wish to bypass your carriers sanctioned device OS level, then you will need these instructions to install:
Note that, if you bypass your carriers approved level, you will likely be refused further support from them.
Good luck and let us know!
