No, they'll be for BIS too. However, it's only for individual applications/modules, i.e. Browser or email app.

The point is to update your OS one module at a time as needed, as improvements are made.

So thes updates that exceed the others by .03 (4.5.0.52 and 4.5.0.55) are just minor module updates?

Where do you gather that from?

Perhaps so. I don't know a rhyme or reason to RIMs version numbering, there likely is one, though.

You have no way of knowing what's changed unless you get the release notes. Don't even speculate.

Unless you get the release notes fro the carriers (and they don't give them out) you have no idea what the changes are between .52 and .55. They could be minimal, they could be extremely important to you.

I thought we already discussed this, there is no way to know, other than to
1) read the threads for each here in the Forums
2) use it and see.

do you run windows at home? do you update the entire os every time ms releases a patch for a specific app? pretty much common sense here

What do you mean? Are you still talking about the OTA updates? Even for BES users I've been told OTA updates are only for individual modules at a time and not for an entire OS update.
