Looks like Rim still has an upgrade available. you need to visit the web site directly to see if you can download at least 4.1.

Version 3.8 to 4.1*
GSM/GPRS

* Denotes the final BlackBerry Device Software version supported for the BlackBerry smartphone model.

RIM also runs the blackberry data services. Look up BES and BIS.

Be aware that if you want to use the fundamental blackbbery data apps such as push email, you must have a blackberry data plan on your account. No blackberry data plan means no blackberry branded data services.
