Talk:Over-the-air programming

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Most OTA actions up to the present are not firmware but data. Firmware-Over-The-Air (FOTA), which transmits new phone operating software, is a recent introduction. OTA is also used to refer to device provisioning activity over the network.

OTA downloading of content[edit]

I see OTA used more often to refer to over the air download of content, be it a J2ME or BREW app, ringtones, wallpapers, or whatnot. Mathiastck 15:38, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Self contradiction?[edit]

One sentence says: "...central location can send an Update to all the Users; who are unable to refuse, defeat, or alter that Update..." Next sentence says: "...A User could "refuse" OTA but the "Channel Manager" could also kick them off the Channel..." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.56.153.73 (talk) 14:43, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
