I'm thinking about buying this phone but the only thing that concerns me is the future updating. Since Dell CSR's can't give me any good answers I'm turning here. Question is, if
I buy this phone. Will I ALWAYS be able to update the OS when new OS are released? Why or why not? Would it make a difference if I bought it unlocked or on an AT&T plan? Thanks guys I appreciate it!

I just purchased this phone about 2 weeks ago and I absolutely love it. No problems or glitches at all. I decided to buy it unlocked so it didn't renew my contract and usually unlocked phones have a higher resale value. If you don't mind the 2 year commitment, I saw this phone on dells website for only .99 cents.
Locked Vs. Unlocked
I am also coming from an iPhone 3gs and so far I have no buyers remorse over the DVP. I originally ordered the Dell Venue android and within 2 days of use, it went straight back to dell and then I ordered the DVP. I did not like the android OS at all on a phone.
I am not sure about getting the mango update. I read on other posts is that if your phone comes directly from your carrier/service provider, they control the updates... But if your phone comes directly from the manufacturer such as dell, they control the updates. But I am not 100% certain about this.
