    No, it means your phone cannot run the updates, you need a Windows PC.

    Well, the updates you had were maybe for application you have, you can't just update the firmware of the phone wirelessly because it's an update of the OS (Operating System) and you can't run the OS while it's updating itself

    You are currently on the latest firmware. The 2.1 Firmware will be released during the next week but it will depend on what carrier you are with how quickly it will be available on your phone. Keep an eye on the forum, the info will be updated as soon as its out there.

    No, you will go from 1.6 to 2.1.
