Makes no sense at all to me why upgrades would be restricted to devices and why I have to root a device to get updates.

@Matthew Read - Thanks Matthew. I had a look at the apps and themes as well as settings and there is no mention of a carrier of any sort. The phone seems to have come from Taiwan directly. It is a HTC.

Thanks. Are there security disadvantages of not upgrading?

@Matthew Read - Thanks Matthew. Wasn't aware the term rooting is used. Will bear that in mind. Also how do I know it came from a network operator and not directly from the manufacturer?
