    How can I decline the update permanently? It keeps popping up and I don't want it.

    Why would you not want it?

    That is an excercise in futility, and the first time you power of the phone it will probably update automatically.

    It's wrapped but I'm still getting notifications. You ask why I don't want it? Because it sucks, crashed my previous Eris, and it's my phone. I choose what I want not them.

    It's their Network...they can dictate what operates on it.

    If the update does anything to enhance network usage, They can require it.

    Yup, Verizon can push whatever they want to your phone. Read the fine print in your contract.

    They can push

    But I can push back. No update for me yet. I keep refusing it and my phone is working perfectly. If there is no way to permanently refuse it then I'll just keep doing what I'm doing until they fix it.

    NA

    Keep rejecting. I just updated this a.m. and now i can't unlock the phone with down-swipe! Time to call Verizon.
    Anyone else experiencing this?

    UPDATE:
    It seems this is normal. Now you must tap the grey horizontal bar and drag down. Not sure why HTC was compelled to make this change as it is more awkward.

    take the battery out for a few seconds, install it-turn the phone on and you'll be able to swipe the screen again...I've upgraded and only problem lve hard was from a forum member saying to press your end call button to wake the phone, did that and the phone froze, won't do that again...lol...

    Nope... Just tried what you described (twice). I still have to swipe down on (or below) the gray arch. The upper half of the screen doesn't work for unlocking.

    Not a big deal. We all just learned how to unlock the phone when they had a more liberal unlock mechanism. Just swipe on the gray arch or below and it still works ok.

    :cool:
