    I see a lot of post talking about OTA. What exactly is it? Does it have something to do with software? If so how do I know if I am running the latest version? Thanks

    OTA stands for O.ver T.he A.ir and yes, it does have to do with software. Sometimes when you have a smartphone, like a Thunderbolt, there are updates to your phone which consists of installing software via the OTA.

    Here are some terminologies here:

    Please know that these terminologies aren't all applicable towards you as you may or may not be a person who wishes to toy with their phone. It does however, give a lot of information to terminologies that people use on occasion.

    As to whether or not you're running the latest version of software you would go to: Menu>Settings>Software update>Check new

    Also, on knowing if you are running the current software, if you go to: Menu>Settings>About phone>Software information, under the Software number, it should say: 1.70.605.0

    I'm not arguing, but my software says 2.11.605. How come? I want to learn too.
    Thanks
