Why upgrade or update your handheld software: There could be various reasons such as bugs and fixes made in newer releases, new functions added, or even just to fix some odd issue you might be having on your device. Or, just because you want to do so.
And, if you don't need to, don't want to, and are having no issues on your device, you don't need to upgrade.
thanks for the information. greatly appreciate it.
is there a way that the handheld software can be updated automatically instead of having to check with the wireless carrier or the forum to see if using the most updated handheld software version?
and is the bb device software same as bb handheld software right?
