    Is it possible? For any OS updates driect thru OTA from BBRY? Just like apps update on BBW. A few, or most Telcos are late in offering OS updates, some even days or weeks after being release by BBRY.
    If we can avoid relying too much on Telcos, many BBRY users will be happy as they get prompt OS updates....

    Not unless you're in a business that has a Beta Zone for Business account and is allowed to access OS betas.

    Still, consider yourself lucky that your carrier is, how ever slow, still faster than American carriers.

    True statement there. I think I've only received 2 official updates on BB10 through Verizon (not counting side loading) and both were many weeks after the release.

    It's indeed possible to bypass carriers for OS updates - iPhone and Nexus OS updates are proof of this. Most phone manufacturers defer to the carriers though, letting them do their "testing and certification" and releasing on their own timetable. Part of this is political - the manufacturers want the carriers to push their devices, so do what they can to work with them.
