Hello Fellow BB users, I just got my first BB and its a Bold. I am just wondering if its necessary to get the latest firmware. This is my first smartphone, i am really scared to start messing around with the programs let alone its firmware. Is there a link where i can useful updates like Desktop manager?

Yes. I am on the latest v188.8.131.52 and rumors are another release will come out next week. There several issues with the current version (e.g.) when in a 3G coverage area, the device will drop into EDGE network and then drop the network completely.....also many reports of dropped calls.....then start up again to GSM to EDGE and then to 3G.......since this is RIM's frist attemp at a 3G device, yes, stay current. Using (required) Blackberry Desktop Manager v4.6 with this device allows a complete backup and restore of settings and configurations that you have prior. Hope this helps, it's painless to upgrade modules on device.
