Default OS on 8703e

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I am brand new to the wonderful world of blackberries. I am trying to determine what version of the OS I have on my device. If I go into Settings, Options,About I see in the first three lines,
Blackberry 8703
Wireless Handheld (CDMA)
v4.2.1.106 (Platform 2.3.0.20)

Is this the most current version and if not, what benefit do I have from upgrading it? The carrier we use is Verizon.
Thanks for helping a newbie out.

The newest version is 4.2.1.110.
You can get it here:

One benefit of having the latest version is that they typically include all of the fixes for bugs in previous versions.
