    Not so much safer. One is an "official" version, the other is a beta.

    I am running the beta on both my phones, but I generally try to
    steer new users to an "official" version. The beta I am running
    is very stable so if you wish to go that route you should be fine.

    Operative words being "should be". Don't want you to come
    looking for me

    AT&T BlackBerry Software

    Go to this site and download and install Desktop Manager 4.6.
    4.7 is newer but there are a lot of reported issues with it.

    Once it is installed, open it and it should prompt you to upgrade.
    If it doesn't click Application Loader and under Add/Remove
    click Start. That will trigger the process.

    Apploader is part of desktop manager.
