    Carol, an upgrade is usually to get additional or improved features for the device. If you're new to the concept it would probably be better for you to get acquainted with all the functions of your Blackberry. Upgrading is not essential to enjoying and using your BB. If you read around in the stacks you'll see that a lot of us upgrade to the newest and latest because we want to "play" with newer software features, etc. If you've gotten you phone recently it's going to be fine with the release that's on it for a long while. I hope that helps.

    Usually newer version bring bug fixes, better performance, or occasionally new features. But sometimes they can have new bug of their own. If your device is running well then there is probably no need for an upgrade unless you just feel like experimenting. If you do decide to upgrade, read other people's comments on it first, see if they report bugs or any poor performance before you try it.

    I've never see that come up before, how can I get rid of that?

    That's new feature of Pinstack for users who post from their BB's - neat, huh? You can't get rid of it.

    you can debate "better performance", the last Rogers release for the 8100 ground it to a halt.

    but with a new device like the 8900 you should be good for a few years.

    Nope. It's just a way for everyone to better see what device you're posting with and some of the details about it. I think it helps answer questions and give information better without having to ask all the prelim questions. See my info?
