How I did it was by going to the motorola website and found the page related to the defy plus. There should be a link somewhere that will check your phone for updates.
Phone needs to be connected and still within warranty.
As for battery, You should get some good usage.
I find that with 3g on and synching along with a lot of playing about, I'll need to recharge after around 12 hours or so.
@PRIDE, I am located in India and the software update app is not giving any form of notification when I connect the phone. I am also worried about the battery as it does not provide even a full day.
the battery can stay for 2 days, for me by the end of the day my defy+ still have about 60% of the battery ,, i used games and phone calls and WiFi for skype calls and Whatsapp.. i like this so much. i vote 10 for this phone
how is the battery backup of defy plus ? any defy plus users please tell
came back to the site to tell you that the battery life is amazing.............2 days after playing lot of games and music........COOL

Have you tried using a different set of earphones because while I found the standared headphones not so good, I used a different set that I bought, changed the setting in the sound option and sound is now superb.
I've bought dis phone a week ago. While 'm using music player it automatically stops playing after a min. If anyone knows why it is happening pls suggest me.
good phone.. to be frank i intentionally dropped it into water three times this week.. it survived.. the problems i face is a little hang up of the device(rarely)..
Pls dont compare with HTC desire or LG Optimus 505.. its a different game with DEFY+
motoblur is not so useful.. tough body....sound is good.. earphone is not as good as expected..
I am happy with the phone :-)
