answer 1
That would be the operating system Android.
There are many things to consider if upgrading the Operating System, least of which is the 'upgrade' must be customized for each phone. Therefore you must understand the hardware and the android platform to 'upgrade' it.
This is probably left to 'experts' only and not touched or the phone could be 'bricked'.
Good luck, and get you checkbook out.

The only way this phone will be upgraded is if Straight Talk sends out an upgrade. Otherwise you are probably gonna need to root, and install a custom rom which will more than likely void any warranty if you brick your phone.
