Please excuse the simplicity of these questions, but...

My Settings...About says my version is Version 3.0.12199
Is this 2002? 2003? How do I upgrade to a newer version?

Will T, in that note, verizon already ships this ppc with the upgrade
installed, that is if you bought the phone recently...

....If that is the case, and you got your phone from a verizon dealer store
then they should be able to give you the upgrade for free or at least point
you in the right direction, last time I checked there is a $15.00 charge for
the upgrade... I thought you might want to know...

I followed the link supplied by Rene and upgraded successfully (Thanks
Rene). I have had my phone for almost a year now. Any time I spoke to
Verizon people about upgrading, I always got that blank stare. Luckily you
guys are here.

Thanks Again,
Will
