You can wait, but there is no telling how long until T-mo gets a newer release. And don't worry about f***ing up your phone. You can always wipe it and start from scratch. It's a pretty simple process to do the upgrade.
Just download the upgraded OS and install it on your PC. Then search for the vendor.xml file and delete it. Plug the Pearl in and run App Loader from the Desktop Manager and it will ask if you want to upgrade. The process will take about 30 minutes and at times will look like the phone has locked up. Don't worry, just let it be and it will do it's thing.
