    Here in the US they don't all charge. Cingular has upgraded firmware on
    more than one of my phones before for free.

    Generally unless there is a problem that crashes their phone, it's going
    to be a small number. In fact, often even if it crashes the phone,
    people won't think to address the problem unless it crashes a lot.
