    How do I tell what Operating System is on my Samsung Aviator? Will it update if it needs it?

    Hi and welcome to AF. :)

    You can tell which android version you are running at menu > settings > about phone. It'll list your Android Version there which is the OS build. When there is an update, you will receive a notification on the notification bar. Androids are updated OTA (over the air) so the update gets pushed to your phone remotely and you can then proceed to apply it.

    That's actually not correct. Some Android updates are OTA, but many are not. US Cellular puts out their updates over the internet, for the most part, which requires you to download the installer. The easiest way to update if you're not really familiar with these things is to take your phone in to a local USCC shop and have them update it.

    For what it's worth, the newest firmware available on the Aviator is FG04, a build of Gingerbread (2.3), which is found in the "About phone" section of the menu under "baseband version." If you have that, then you're on the newest version.

    Oh wow, thanks for the clarification. I followed this thread from the Android Lounge and didn't realize that was the case. I guess I've never been exposed to USC phones enough to realize that.

    JFmiller, new advice...listen to Zebulon. :D
