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 Today
BlackBerry® Device Software v5.0 supports the following smartphones:
BlackBerry® Curve™ 8330 smartphone
BlackBerry® Curve™ 8350i smartphone
BlackBerry® Curve™ 8520 smartphone
BlackBerry® Curve™ 8530 smartphone
BlackBerry® Curve™ 8900 smartphone
BlackBerry® Storm™ 9530 smartphone
BlackBerry® Storm2™ 9550 smartphone
BlackBerry® Tour™ 9630 smartphone
BlackBerry® Bold™ 9000 smartphone
BlackBerry® Bold™ 9650 smartphone
BlackBerry® Bold™ 9700 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.
