Welcome to the forum! While someone with much more expertise replies, let me give you my two cents. First off, I did the exact same things as you (went back to the bold for my att but that's another story)...not sure what if any benefit you would acheive by going to the att service books vs. the vzw ones, perhaps certain att specific service books such as the yello pages icon that was recently pushed to my phone...regarding BES...you do not need to upgrade before or after...it's fine either way...I am running .85 right now, .75 is the VZW preferred right now but .85 has been out for quite some time in ¨beta¨ if you will....be careful not to confuse the software out there for the 9500 vs your verizon branded 9530...two totally different phones and their software is not interchangeable..
Once you do decide to upgrade to a new model, you can do your BES activation simply by connecting your phone to your pc via the usb cable while Desktop Manager is connected to your email exchange server...no need to request a new wireless activation password, though you can certainly do that if you prefer.
Hope that helps and again welcome!
