Thanks.
Well you should be able to flash any rom you want. Service and data settings are stored deeper than roms reach. The only way those settings will get wiped out is if you do a factory reset from hboot, or from the storage and sd menu within the os. If something at the os level is required, you can just backup before hand, and then restore if somethimg dosent work. You should just be able to flash the stock 4.08.605.15 rom in the dev section right over 2.2 without wiping anything if you want to stay stock.
The ota will not install because you are rooted. For it to imstall you must be unrooted and complete stock.
That being said i do not have straight talk, so i dont know all the details. You could use QPST http://dinc.does-it.net/QPST/
to backup all those settings to a file on your pc, and then restore them if something ever goes wrong.
