Motorola ATRIX 4G and HTC Inspire 4G both receive an AT&T upgrade that turns on their HSUPA radios

The Motorola ATRIX 4G upgrades must be done over Wi-Fi and in a certain order. You can check the sourcelink for the information. As far as fixing the little things, one upgrade for the ATRIX 4G should improve battery life, enhance the performance of the fingerprint reader, and turns off the display while charging, while the other upgrade enables Yahoo! email over Wi-Fi, turns on the HSUPA radio, and allows for 2G/EDGE mobile hot spot capabilities.
AT&T also announced that they have also sent an OTA upgrade to users of the HTC Inspire 4G that turns on that unit's HSUPA radio. Inspire owners can check to see if they have received the download by going to Home>Menu>Settings> AT&T Software Update> HTC Wi-Fi software update. Besides increasing the phone's upload data speed, the HTC Inspire 4G upgrade also makes it easier to set up email accounts and includes the most up to date settings for each type of email and updates email auto configuration for Hotmail, Live and MSN.

Question: These updates refer to those devices already purchased. But, as a general rule, if I went to AT&T and bought one of these phones new after the update came out, would they still need the upgrade, or would they be there when the new phone is activated? (Again, more of a general question for all upgrades, not meaning these two only.)

The way this usually works, for all upgrades on all devices, is that phones that are already out in the field And already in stock as well as in transit to stores and other locations will be needing the update once it gets to a users hands. Only the handsets that have software installed after the update get it. Get it? As for the time it takes for handsets to be sold with the update, that depends on shipping schedules, manufacturing schedules, and also sales. If the device sells like hotcakes stores will get new ones faster.

Well about time I installed it on my atrix. I have been an att customer for 2 years I had a captivate before and I have never seen speeds this fast on att before over here in los Angeles I'm surprised. On my captivate the fastest I ever saw was 3 mbps up and 3 mbps down. Now on my atrix I'm seeing 3-6 mbps up and 3-5 mbps down so far I'm luving it lol

I haven't either and also have the Atrix. I think AT&T is rolling it out in phases. You will probably receive the update in the next few days.

There is no update, evidently it's only rumors or there was one and it got pulled... either way a lot of Atrix and AT&T users are left in the dark... yet again. https://supportforums.motorola
