    I guess that fits with all the news of a release before the end of June aka June 30. Hopefully gb fixes some of the bugs from froyo.

    Please ask your buddy to clarify. How many users are involved in the soak test? These testers include additional random people who may happen to check for and install the update later today? I think the soak test may be going on but don't necessarily think it will be open to anyone who happens to check for and install the update. I also think the soak test may take longer before the update is made available to large numbers of users. Not necessarily BS but there's lots of talk about these things by reps, store managers, corporate, etc, by people that do not necessarily fully understand this process.

    I hope this update fixes the reboot issues. VZW tech support didn't have a clue to help with this problem. They were trying to tell me about dl certain apps like task killer can cause the random reboots which may be true but not the case with my phone. It started after that last update. So they said either a battery pull or a master reset can fix the problem. Wrong again. A lot is riding on this gb update whenever it finally comes out.

    I've had my phone for about a week and also had my first ever reboot at 7:30 am this morning... and somehow my battery drained from 99% at 1am to 60% when I woke up around 7:45 am. Hopefully this will be the one and only reboot I get.

    If it is going through a soak test now I highly doubt it will be ready by this afternoon.

    A soak test is usually at least 72 hours.

    However, Droid X started soak testing the day before it was pushed so who knows.

    Ridicules

    Unacceptable

    I hope htc doesn't play the Moto BS game.

    Same...and that says to me that the update did serious, unfixable damage to the hardware code...I forgot the proper term for it.

    Because a master reboot really should fix things that a simple update messed up.

    I guess I am one of the lucky ones, because my TB so far has only had one random reboot... right after the update... then I just rooted and put gingeritis on and viola no problems since... Still would like for HTC to actually release the full on update since I am sure it can only just get better, I am honestly getting sick and tired of companies (Moto and HTC and VZW) for holding out on releasing stuff when it is needed! Oh well the wait continues!

    I don't know what you guys are running. No reboots that I can remember and I have a ton of apps. The only problems I have are:

    1) Ringer volume goes down (my guess is I'm hitting the volume button by accident, old problem, should have had remedies other than download from market 3p solution)

    2) My phone is draining the battery ridiculously quickly. Probably an app, maybe Yahoo. If something is a service, you could be in trouble. User issue, have to find it.

    The only solution, as painful as it seems, is to factory reset the phone. If you haven't done that at least once to see whether that cures your problem then you can't really complain about it and blame HTC. Stuff like this happens to every device.

    The rebooting is a OS issue not a hardware issue. Not everyone is having it. I am lucky and have yet to have a single reboot.

    You can factory reset all you want it won't fix the rebooting. Verizon and HTC acknowledged the problem already.

    It doesn't come from apps youre running.

    As for battery life, it will be greatly improved by GB as GB is much more aggressive when it comes to killing tasks and using memory in a smart way.

    If you think you have a misbehaving app eating up battery install watchdog and it will find it for you.

    I'm not entirely convinced that there is not sometimes a hardware component to the reboot & connectivity issues. It seems rather difficult to diagnose and fix and I've seen some indications that suggest firmare, network eHRPD protocols and tower deployment and settings as well as phone hardware. 4G & eHRPD network tech is still in its infancy so Verizon and HTC are both still learning a lot right now about how to get everything to work together well for everyone. I finally let Verizon send me a CLNR Bolt and so far I'm on my 3rd day without a single reboot or data connectivity incident. Hope I didn't just jinx myself!

    Thanks, Robrecht

    Verizon already said there's no update today and if and when it become available we will hear about it, also HTC would be announcing it like they have with their other devices via Facebook and twitter same with Verizon
