How to upgrade to android 2.3 gingerbread

I am using samsung galaxy gio with froyo... Now I want to upgrade to gingerbread.. Anybody here have the idea... ??

Is it safe to upgrade.. What are the benifits? Kindly teply.. Is gingerbread functional with pakistani networks?... I dnt want panic.. Thanks..

The best resource for samsung mobile phones on the intenet http://www.samfirmware.com/WEBPROTECT-s5660.htm (this is the page for galaxy gio, you need to be registered to see the page)

It has all the firmware's and has a nice guide explaining it how to flash a firmware of your choice on your cell phone. It is safe to upgrade if you know what you are doing, the benefits are that it is faster then froyo with more functionality. The firmware has nothing to do with the network as it works everywhere.

i think samsung has not yet officially launched upgrades for mini and gio but if you wanna go ahead and check it then there are beta versions available for your phone but with this you may lose your phone warranty
