Can I install OS 5 on my Sprint 8330 phone?
According to Blackberry, my device is listed as OS 5 compatible:
BlackBerry - Device Software v5.0 - Download BlackBerry Device Software TodayBlackBerry Device Software v5.0 supports the following smartphones:
BlackBerry Curve™ 8330 smartphone
BlackBerry Curve™ 8350i smartphone
BlackBerry Curve™ 8520 smartphone

BlackBerry Storm2™ 9550 smartphone
BlackBerry Tour™ 9630 smartphone

And if I can install it, are there compelling reasons to do so or are the changes just minor?

As long as you have the 8330 and not the 8330m, you can download and install the 5.0 device OS to that device. Be aware that it will likely slow the device down significantly because of the size of the OS. But OS 5.0 is significantly better than OS 4.5, in my opinion.
