I am a new BB 8700 user, and no genius. I have 4.1 as the running syatem, and have downloaded the 4.1 Desktop Manager on my PC. The disc supplied also has 4.2 on it. How do I go about getting 4.2 or the new 4.3 system onto my phone. Will I still keep all my Phonebook contacts if it over-rides 4.1.
Many thanks, Big Al.

Depends entirely on your Moblie Carrier Al. If your carrier supports a device OS for the 8700 thats greater than 4.1, you can download it from them and use the Desktop Manager to install it to your phone.
Note that the BlackBerry Desktop Manager is independant of your BlackBerry itself. As long as you have a copy of hte Desktop Manager thats equal to or greater in age to your BlackBerry itself, it should work.

And do I get the 4.2 service pack, downloaded from the Blackberry website to my PC, and then upload it to the phone, or direct from Blackberry site to Phone?
Told you I was just a novice.
