Question Have Rogers HTC Magic. I am in US on AT&T. Will OTA work?

I bought my HTC Magic phone unlocked online. Its a Rogers branded phone, but unlocked. I am using it in US with AT&T carrier.

I wanted to know whether the OTA will work for me here in US?
Do the carriers also provide an alternate/manual procedure to apply the update?
The OTA is pushed by Google servers or Carrier's servers (rogers) or Manufacturer's servers (htc)?

Thanks in advance.

If I'm right the service provider is the one who pushes the OTA, so no it won't work. You'll have to find the rom online and update it like that.

Thanks for your reply vbetts.

I found at the link below that the OTA updates are hosted on Google Servers and not on Carrier's servers
Who sends any Nexus One OTA updates? - Android Discuss | Google Groups

I hope there was a way to confirm this.

Nexus one is also originally an unlocked phone, where as your phone is rogers branded.
