    It will automatically notify you if updates are available for it.

    There is no 2.4... And 3.0 is tablet only. Android is now on 4.x. What phone model do you have?

    What phone? If you're device is set up to receive an update notification that there is an OS update, you'll be notified and can run the update.

    Apps can be set to "auto" update via the app draw. Wait, is this feature available in Gingerbread? I don't remember.

    It won't get an official update. Its running an older single core 800Mhz. Samsung can't even update the Galaxy S officially with a faster proc.
