I finally had a chance to perform a wireless OS update yesterday and was wondering how many of you have also used this feature. When it first came out I thought it could be a game changer for RIM since OS updates are risky business for newbie users and time consuming for power users.
I have to say it worked like a charm (though it took its sweet time @ ~2 hours) but I wish RIM would loosen up all the restrictions on it. For example, you should be able to update to the latest OS even if it is not released by your carrier. This is true for all BlackBerry OS updates since I have yet to understand why RIM cannot work like Apple and release an OS update to all their users. On top of that RIM should let you upgrade from any OS build to the latest not just from your carriers current OS. I doubt RIM will implement any of these changes but I have to hope… Maybe the upcoming QNX Tablet OS will be a good segue for them since the device will not be locked to a carrier.
So here is the poll:
