Latest software for Curve 8330

I thought 4.5 was the latest software for the curve.  I am currently using software version 4.3.0.127.  When I tried to update to 4.5 it told me I have the latest software.  Is the 4.5 not available for the Sprint curve 4.5?

I originally wanted to update  because all the sudden my battery is draining pretty quickly, and someone had mentioned that this had solved their problems. 

 

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Re: Latest software for Curve 8330

the latest OS Sprint has released for the 8330 is the 4.3.
Contact their hotline to know when they will release the 4.5 OS.

Please keep in mind that the OS 4.5 is available from Vodaphone Germany or some carriers from Egypt and Latin America carriers for more than 4 months.

Re: Latest software for Curve 8330

Thank you both for the info.  I guess I am up to date so will just wait until Sprint releases 4.5.

Re: Latest software for Curve 8330

I have the red Sprint 8330 and I  have successfully upgraded my OS to 4.5.0.77 platform 3.2.0.51. If you are a newbie I don't recommend upgrading your OS since it might brick your system.  Also if you are successful, don't let Sprint know you upgraded since it will void the warrenty.
