Default software upgrade

9700/5.0.0.979 is my version, I check for updates on my phone and none are available. Is ATT behind on their updates? Help me upgrade if possible, thanks!

Check the sticky at the top of the 9700 section for the latest release. You can install any release as long as it is for your specific device, i.e. you can't install 9780 software on a 9700, and if you delete the vendor.xml file and follow our directions.

However, I never recommend a software update unless your device is having problems or is other wise broken. If it works as you want and need, then it doesn't need to be fixed. The forum is full of upgrades gone wrong or things that don't work or apps that don't work, etc. So if you are happy, think twice before you break it.

That is the latest OS5 update release from AT&T (and probably will remain that way as I don't see OS5 updating any longer). AT&T does have an OS6 release, but for OS5 you have the latest one.

Plug your phone into your PC and load up desktop Manager. OS6 for the ATT 9700 has been out for about 3 weeks. or you can check here:
