Yes that is correct, you can walk into alot of mobile stores and they will upgrade the firmware for you at a price.

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

Honestly how many mobile phone users do you know that would.....
a) know that this service exists..
b) pay for this service..

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.
