    I just got it this morning, and so far I think it is quite nice. Updated color schemes, profiles. I know some folk have said that their phones appear to be running faster. I would say that it is running smoother which is quite nice. Scrolling around used to be a bit jumpy, now its just smooth.

    Ehhh.... I'm wary. It *is* smoother. I'll give it that. I am one of those people who doesn't like change lol. Not a fan of new fonts, and I'm still unsure of the calling interface, but I'm liking the blue. That's something, right?

    Not sure if it's related, because it's a software update, but I found my poor little R2 getting way hot while the update was going through, and after I played with it for a bit. It never used to do that. I think it's oddly coincidental.

    Updated yesterday morning. So far so good. Touch screen keyboard is much better. New fonts and colors are nice. Overall I am pleased with GB.

    Would any of you by any chance have the SBF for this phone when running Froyo? Better yet, is it possible for anyone to get or make the SBF for Gingerbread for this phone? I've tried three to four times to get this update to work and have been unsuccessful.

    Did the update retain the SW themed stuff (C3P outline in contacts vs generic figure, etc.)? I switched over to stock D2 and have upgraded to Gb that way but sure miss some of the R2 stuff.

    The update did retain the Star Wars stuff. The contact picture as you mentioned as well as the sliders. In fact the color scheme actually compliments the SW/R2D2 stuff extremely well.
