    Hi all,

    If I were to buy an unlocked HTC phone (e.g. Legend/Desire) on Expansys and use it in Canada, will I be able to update my phone's firmware? (it would be directly from HTC coz the phone isn't offered by the carriers in Canada).

    Another question is, what if I decide not to get dataplan coz I can get free Wifi at school/work/home... will I be able to update my phone's firmware using Wifi?

    Thanks.

    You can manually update by downloading the update off the internet from a PC and loading it onto the SD card. And you do know that allot of apps are going to want to pull data over cellular regardless of what you think. I would really at least get a small data plan for weather updates, email updates and the ability to check twitter, facebook, etc.
