Help New to Motion - Should I get OTA Update?

Hey fellas, I've been lurking these forums for about a week before I decided on buying the Motion (between that and the new Galaxy Admire), so this is my first post in the Motion 4G forums :)

Here are my versions from the "about phone" section:

Android: 4.04
Baseband: M8960A-AAAANAZM-1.0.09017
Kernel: 3.08
Build number: IMM761
Software Version: MS77010c
HW Version: 1.0

I keep getting a message requesting I update my phone, and I'm wondering whether it's better to keep my phone the version it is or go through with the update. I found a few users on these forums saying they lost some download speed after the update, but I'm not sure which update they're referring to.

Thanks in advance!
There is only the one update. Some have reported issues with it, some haven't.
If you aren't having any issues with the phone it's not necessary to do the update, and you should be able to disable the update app to kill the reminders (I think you can disable this one without root, not 100% sure).
If you do choose to do the update it may be better to use the LG updater tool and download it from their website then apply it to the phone, this may give better results than doing the OTA through the phone.
There are a few threads here discussing the update, here's one and you can search for more-
