    I got my daughter the incredible2 this weekend. I was talking to the sales rep about the gingerbread on it, and he told me 2.3 is coming to the TB most likely this week, but by the end of July for sure.

    dont hold your breath. sales Reps like to think they know more than they really do.

    while i think it is coming by the end of August, i wouldn't hold my breath for next week/end of July.

    Not saying he does or doesn't know what he is talking about, but so far everything he has told me was going to happen has. So I'm hoping he is correct on this also.

    I wish Verizon would implement Apple's policy about giving out info so people would stop making threads like this. Apple employees are expressly forbidden from even speculating when new software/hardware will be out. It makes sense as they dont know anything, so it's bad business to just make up stuff to tell customers.

    Crazed, I don't think the VZW rep is making it up and like jmd said he has been right before. Also, being an Apple employee is different than a VZW one. They have no ties to one product. If it was an HTC employee I could understand. Let's just hope we get GB by the end of the month. The MR2 has been working great for me so far and I am looking forward to GB finally!!!

    Bases1616, did you have any problems flashing your Mr2? I tried 3 times and once I installed the Rom and the phone booted I had no service. When I went into settings to check the radio version nothing showed up, it was like there was no radio installed.

    Hmm. Interesting. Wonder if my TB will get the auto push. Still waiting on the fix for the reboot. And every time I try to check for software update it tells me service not available.

    Gingerbread has been running really well on my Thunderbolt. So I think you guys will enjoy it when you get it.

    Always remember and don't ever forget that if you really wanted it you could have it now.

    How is it every thread, no matter what the topic is, ends up with people saying root your phone? I mean we know you can root the phone, and glad it's an option, but does it have to be included in every discussion?
