Default Advantage of upgrading OS?

Please Login to Remove!

If my phone is doing what I want it to do right now, is there any advantage to upgrading the OS at all?

Probably depends on what you have vs. the current OS. For example, I had a 7250 that worked fine...but upgrading to the current version enabled a faster transmission method (1X to EVDO). So I went for it. You really need to review what features have been added to be able to answer that question.

I agree with rsnadel. Do a little research on the new OS. Generally, the advantage of upgrading, in my opinion, is bug fixes and new features. You may be happy with what you got, but sometimes you don't know what you are missing until you've tried it.
