The latest is 4.6.1.313. I would consider it best since it fixes the bugs from previous versions.

The best OS is the one that works best for her. If the device is working as she wants and needs it to work, then why mess with it? The forum is full of OS upgrades gone bad, problems created, apps not working, etc.

If the device isn't broken, then there is no need to fix it. Think of the grief you will catch if you screw up her beloved BB?

Your best source of info is the "Latest OS" thread for your model. Don't assume that the posts in there represent everyone who has upgraded. Keep in mind that with any discussion forum most of the posts are people with issues. People rarely bother to post when everything is working normally.
