In case he was talking about the previous update, the 4.06.605.2, will the 4.08.605.2 or any update for that matter wipe my phone of all the apps and contacts, etc.?? Thanks in advance for the replies.
Typically, a factory reset after a major update is a good idea as it cleans out all of the crap left behind by the conflicting Android versions. This improves performance, stability, and battery life. So, I would recommend performing a factory rest at some point after the update, but it is completely your call.
