My platform version is 188.8.131.52 and app version is 184.108.40.2069

Good luck, and don't hesitate to post any questions along the way. :)
Hi thanks for ur reply. Will it affect that my unit is originally bpught from at&t? I mean it was opened line here in manila, then I will upgrade my os, will it affect my unit?
No the carrier won't affect the OS system. The OS is specific to the phone model. So an OS for a 9700 will work no matter the carrier. That said there can be some quirky things that occur with certain carriers so when you load 6.0 be sure to check out the forums to see what others users say. Personally I'm on ATT and .461 didn't work well on my 9700 but .448 ran pretty good. With .461 I had a lot of hourglasses as if my phone was always processing something behind the scenes. Read the link that Joe posted and also make sure there are people online before you start loading it for the first time.
