    Yeah I don't have that either. Is it maybe a Sprint hero only option?

    Anyway, assuming you're GSM, look on Menu>Settings>About Phone and find your build number. If it's not 2.73.x.x then you're not up to date.

    You can update by downloading the RUU.exe file from HTC's website, or from your network's website if your phone is branded. And yes, it will wipe everything on the phone, so back things up.
