    No, while automatic updates might be available in future issues, at this point in time upgrading your OS is a manual process.

    Just a side note, Verizon has not released the latest OS for the 8330 yet. There is only one official release and it is by another carrier (MTS Mobility). If you are new to Blackberrys, you should wait until the official release from Verizon. All others right now are beta software and you use at your own risk.

    Your 8330 should come with OS 4.3 on it. The new version will be 4.5

    But you will still need to download the latest released 4.3 version that is on your 8330 to your PC as well in order to use the Desktop MAnager to add those apps and games to your BB.

    I haven't tried the 4.5 DM yet, give it a try, it should work. But if it gives you fits, then downgrade. The 4.3 version of the DM will come on a CD with your BB if you need it.

    memory card is erased when device dies. Any advice as to why this happens each time the device shuts off.

    I am running DM 4.5 with a Telus 8330 on 4.3 no issues, so you should be ok.
    I would do a backup of the BB once you have it all configured the way you like it.

    If you have the latest DM from blackberry.com, then you should be alright. You could set up the syncing options between your contacts and calendar. But outside of that, just wait...

    Also, your phone should have the latest official release of the os. Which is 4.3
