This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Have you heard of an official, or unofficial, update to 2.3? The sidekick uses another "custom" version of android by samsung, and they haven't even rolled out TouchWiz Gingerbread to their Galaxy S devices yet, officially. – Ryan Conrad Aug 8 '11 at 19:39

If there is an official update to Android 2.3 (check the post on Gingerbread updates) then you'll get a notice on your phone (eventually). Just follow the instructions.

If there's not an official update and you don't want to wait for one, you'll need to root your phone and install a Custom ROM.
