| | BB Update Notification
You can have your carrier and/or Blackberry send you and email or text msg when an update is available for your phone. You should have been offered that opinion when you purchased your phone. If not, you can still go to the BB site and sign-up for that option. I'm not sure if your carrier has the same service available. I have had good luck with BB (although limited) notifying me of updates for my curve.
