    I am new to Crackberry. Great site. Loads of useful info.

    I have a BB 8310. I have not updated my BB or Desktop software since I got the phone.

    My current software is as follows (i think):

    Phone: V4.2.2.170 (Platform
    Desktop: 4.30.15

    Am I running the latest version of the software for both my device and desktop?

    If not what is the latest version?

    I am also connected to an exchange server and I am worried that if i run a full update I might wipe out my settings.

    When I run the update does BB take into consideration all my settings and save everything and then reinstall when I update?

    Thanks in advance for all your help.

    Welcome to CrackBerry.

    The device software you have is the offical AT&T version, at this time.

    All the carriers are testing the next generation OS, when they are satisfied it will run correctly, with a minimum impact on their customer support system, they will introduce it for future sales. When it is official, you can download and install it with confidance.

    Some carriers have already approved it, you can find link to their version a the top of the Curve Discussion forum. The catch is, AT&T customer support can not help you if you encounter problems. We can.

    However, if your device is company owned, you should not modify it without approval.

    The upgrade is well done, all of your setting, data and third party programs will be carried over intact. It is still a good idea to have a current backup, just in case.

    welcome to cb!

    reed has already explained it pretty well. it kinda blows though for consumers, since some other carriers are already running more updated OS. so the user loses out.

    but hey u can always do an upgrade by yourself. plenty of help files to teach u how to use other vendors' OS.
