    Should I update Or should I wait for my carrier to come up with the software update which might never happen.

    Update. It doesn't matter what carrier. I have no idea which carrier update is installed on my phone.

    Just be sure to delete the vendor.xml file before you update.

    The same with me. I have never installed my carrier's OS in last 5yrs. Use any carrier or leak even, simply delete vendor.xml before installation.

    You can install any carriers upgrade. It wont affect your hardware, it might actually improve it.

    1. Uninstall any previous OS you may have installed.
    2. Install the OS to your PC.
    3. If you have a Windows PC, change your folders option to show hidden files/folders
    4. Then go to: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader and delete the vendor file.
    5. IF you happen to have Windows 64 bit, go here as well: C:\Users\*your user name*\AppData\Roaming\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML and elete that vendor file as well.

    *You need to delete the vendor file(s) whenever you are using an OS that is not from your carrier. A simple search of your c: drive should pull these 2 vendors up as well, but you must have enabled show hidden files/folders.

    6. Open up Desktop Manager and check to see if there is an updated OS and install.

    or

    7. Open up Loader in your PC: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader

    I would highly recommend uninstalling SocialFeeds prior to this. You can re-install it during the installation process.

    LOL. Same here. Our household phones get an update as soon as they come home most times. The phone does not care what OS is running and AT$T is slow to release official versions.

    I've always used my carrier updates, which I realize is rare compared to the posts that I read here on Crackberry, but I've had ZERO problems with my BlackBerry phone(s). I don't think it will effect your phone though. Carrier updates are always sloooow
