Before you start a word of advise.

To update your phone without connecting to a computer be aware that if you are not connected to a Wi-Fi network you will download the update through your carriers data network. Unless your phone is on a data plan this could get quite expensive depending on your cell phone carrier.

Another thing is that updating phones this way could if you are very unlucky cause your data to be wiped from your phone.

Another advantage of updating your phone is to get the latest and best features and improvements. This could mean that your phone could get useful new services and may even run smoother and faster after you have updated.
