I have no idea what the android platform is like on any other phones and this is my first phone with the OS, but I know that 2.3 "gingerbread" is out. Is it possible for us Thrive users to upgrade to this OS and how would we do that? If it is not supposed to happen, but it can be downloaded, how? Also, would that have a negative effect on anything like battery life, etc.? I am mainly just wanting to change the look of the OS. I have no idea what the launchers are, but are those harmful?
