Is this something I would get from Samsung, the wireless provider, or Google?

There should be an option in your phones settings to update software.

Unless you've rooted your phone, you cannot manually upgrade your device to a later version than the phone manufacturer and carrier allows. If an official update has been released and you still have not gotten it, you can upgrade through the Android Settings app (I believe it will be under "About phone").

If your device is rooted, you can just flash updates yourself. Check out XDA-Developers for more information on that.

If the carrier hasn't pushed an update, you can usually flash it yourself by following instructions via XDA-Developers like @eddieringle said, or if it's supported by Cyanogenmod, you can flash it there and usually it has a higher firmware than what the carrier bundles.

I usualy check with Samsung specifically for the model in question. I know I am using the Galaxy Gio over here and have not seen any new updates for latest one for mine yet.

Open up your settings app and then head over to About.
