    It's best not to update if your using a piggy back sim.

    as the turbo sim is a hardware mod , i think there is no reason for you to be affraid of updating

    not true if he updates he runs the risk of also having to update the firmware on the sim adapter, each sim adapter is only configured to work with and up to a certain baseband,firmware....etc
