I'm close to two months shy of having my 9810 for a year. Since I've moved on to 7.1 builds, I can't vouch that AT&T hasn't had any upgrades to 22.214.171.1241. But they haven't had a single 7.1 release. Why wouldn't we want to upgrade on our own?
Then there's my experience with AT&T approved upgrades. And my experience is verified by comments by others, here. AT&T's upgrades for my 9800 (before I got the 9810) were always "interesting". Infrequent, often the worst possible upgrades, lots of bloatware. Not my first choice when I can upgrade on my own.
Every AT&T upgrade I've done has been like any other -- download, install to PC, install from PC to phone. The only step missing is the need to delete the vendor files, which you don't need to do, anyway, unless the release is carrier specific & from a carrier other than your own.

At least you are with a carrier. My 9810 is SIM/carrier free so nobody upgrades me.. Ahhh . I am doomed to using leaks for all time

In fact I'd heard this before about AT&T. I live some of the year in Charlotte NC and my son, who lives there full time, is on AT&T and he too has a 9810. I tried to do an OTA OS upgrade last month when I was there. Needless to say, it did not work.

i am with att. had to install 7.0 583 with desktop manager. my phone kept saying it was up to date when it wasn't. rim and att told me 583 would not install ota. also that it is better anyway to always install using desktop manager. also i found att tries its hardest to steer you away from blackberry. am always asked why in the world did i want blackberry not i phone. i had to insist i want blackberry and that i prefer 9810 to 9900. they also push you to exchange the phone for any problem rather than re install os. i had to insist on it and insist on being connected to rim for tech advice.
