Default Overthe air updates of the OS from the Carrier

Please Login to Remove!

Quick question. I have a BB 8330 v 4.3.

My question is, will my carrier (Sprint) do an over the air update of the OS to the new v4.5?

Is the only way I can update my OS is by a computer??

I have v4.5 on my 8330 from the Curve forum. And what I noticed is there is a wirless update option now in settings. Could this be the futurw of carrier updates?

Yes, it will be used for OTA handheld software updates. The feature is not yet active on RIM's network.

It won't be used for full OS upgrades. It will most likely be used for certain module upgrades...i.e. Browser update or something.
