    OK. This may be a dumb question but do I need to run MyBackupPro before I do this OTA update or can I update without it wiping out every app?

    Android backs up all your critical info since it's cloud based. But you may wish to backup your apps, text messages, etc.

    But DI06 is a minor update that does not affect your phone data.

    My Moment wouldn't even let me install the update. Probably because its rooted. But as an ATS agent for sprint installing an OTA (over the air) update wont wipe your data. The only time you have to worry about a data wipe is when you're doing an OTW (over the wire) update like updating from 1.5 to 2.1 (which i'm sure you've already done.

    hey seddy, you can update your phone without any problems, i just updated mine, it will say updating phone with AM06 or DI06, i forgot, but it does update it, just let that message stay up for like 2-3 mins, then take out the battery, put it back in, power up and it will update your phone.
