FIrmware Upgrade

How do you upgrade the firmware to the latest version? I couldn't find a way to do it on the phone.

you have to take it to a VZW store and have them do it, there is no way to do it other than that...

What does *228 do when you select option 1?

the only reason a customer should dial *228 to use option 2 to update the PRL, or prefered roaming list. actually, the phone is also re-programed during that process as well, it's part up the update process.

option 1 is really only for when you purchase or activate a new phone, that is what the salesperson dials to first program a new phone before he/she hands it to you...

Option 2 updates the PRL only. Option 1 Updates the PRL and Updates your software. Although the software update is not as extensive as what you will get at a store with the PST tool.

Correct !! You don't want to do it yourself anyway because if the phone or the pc looses power, or for any reason stops flashing the new firmware the phone is trash.
If that happens when we are doing it (techs) you get a new phone no questions asked.
It is too risky to do it on your own.
