There's carrier released versions of 4.5 which are much newer than what you have now.

Your guess is good as ours as to when ATT will release it

well it maybe newer..but what major improvement are there? i already can do video recording and watch youtube on my curve w/ my beta os. i'm trying to see what are the pros...if it ain't worth my time..i'm not gonna waste my time upgrading it to get new os just to get a new background theme or ringtones.

so u know the old saying....if it ain't broke..don't fix.

Bug fixes, improved stability, improved battery life... that's about it. There's no new features, if that's what you are asking.

(And I don't believe that old saying.)

i dont buy stability....i mean before i upgraded my beta os...the number of time it crashes and needed to reboot is about the same as after i upgraded my os to beta 37. same with battery life. where you guys getting your source it is more "stable" or "longer battery life." rimm just mention these features and you guy just accept it? did any1 of you do an independent test to test out these "theory?" so i dont want to waste my time this time. thx but no thx.

If you don't care about upgrading, then why did you start a thread asking when ATT will release 4.5? If you aren't going to upgrade, it doesn't matter

i was asking if there are any major improvements. like for example before i upgraded to beta on my curve...i couldn't do video recording or watch youtube or listen to internet radio...but now i can. to me...that is a major improvement.

but if the upgrade is basically just newer wallpaper, ringtones, "stability", "longer battery life." then that aint my cup of tea...i read thru the various posts on the beta forum and some have totally fubar their bb with the upgrade...i dont want to take a chance and brick my curve when it is working fine and dandy and its just "cosmetic" upgrade.

Even when AT&T releases theirs, it won't have any different features than what you have now. It will, however, have stability improvement, bug fixes, battery life improvement, etc.

If you're scared of upgrading because you read a few horror story posts from some inexperienced users who didn't know what they were doing, well that's just silly.
This is largely a tech support forum, and people typically post here when they're having problems.
If everyone posted their success stories as well, then you'd see that they FAR outweigh the negative posts.
You don't go to the emergency room of a hospital to draw the conclusion that an entire population of people are sick because of a few injured folks in the ER.

There are "officially released" versions of 4.5 well past your .37 beta release. People who stay on Beta versions are suckers asking for trouble. Your beta release was just that... beta... because of issues including instability.

Also, please do some homework and don't expect people to outline all the differences in the version you have vs. what is currently available. All that information is there if you review all the posts in the beta forum for your device. It's trial and error my friend. Only YOU can prevent beta abuse

I disagree, Betas are the same versions when they are offically released so your point is not correct about people with betas.

Uh huh... DID they ever officially release that version?? Not to my knowledge they didn't. You're technically correct in that once a release is officially adopted by a carrier it's no longer considered a beta. However, some of those earlier releases that were adopted never should have been, as they still had bugs.

And how thoughtful for you to come in and contribute your disagreement to this thread, being your first contribution... have you anything helpful to add?
