    Apple can release patches immediately after their phones come out and no one gets upset, but if RIM or any other handset maker does its a problem. The reason its a problem is the Carriers. They hold things up, they botch the releases and fail to prepare their support lines for what's coming. Its time RIM took back their OS, and their balls kept in the carriers jars. Then and only then will BlackBerry users get a device they can truly be proud of 24x7x365.

    Ummm wow!? I like him already!

    .42 must be a minor update? And if it leaks in a month, or less, about the same time 5.0 is "official"...why bother? A friend of mine is a tech at Sprint, whose BB rep informed him of an official 5.0 release within the next 4/5 weeks. Now I know that's like saying I have a friend who knows a guy that works with a girl who used to live next to a hairdresser that cuts Steve Jobs' wife hair and SHE said blah blah blah. BUT it keeps me hopeful!!! LOL

    Rumors are a signal that things are at least happening. Whether TM's source is right on the 4 to 5 weeks timeframe, just knowing that they are talking about it throughout their support arms is great news.hone:

    RIM really needs to focus on consumer confidence as in business consumer and retail consumer. I recall earlier this summer about the carrier (was it in Dubai or Arab Emirates) that pushed out a "update" that was actually malicious software designed to track their BB users and send their secure emails to their servers for review. While I would like to say I am glad to live in the US, since this would never happen, whose to say it hasn't, won't or isn''t under review. Anyone?

    One more thought, I would like .42, but since I am already running the latest hybrid I am not as concerned as I am about having a solid working 5.0 that is app supported otherwise what's the big deal about 5.0 if most of our apps don't work. If RIM would support their developers and allow them to get developer builds so they can begin to prepare for the big push that will inevitably take 12+ months to roll out over 100+ countries :aargh4:
