    My inside Tech manager at Verizon who has been working with me on trying to get or find a fix for the random reboot issue. He called me today and said that techs from HTC came to his building today, they told him that a fix for the reboot and the continuing gps issue is complete and is being test on some phones now. He said that if all goes well with the test, the fix will be available either this Thursday or next week sometime. He said the the reboot problem affected over 10,000 phones, but this fix will take care of the issues. He said he will call me when the fix out to the public.

    I'm still taking my wife's TB in and getting a new one. But that is good news. Hopefully it will fix the bug and hopefully the new one I get for her will be fixed and not all buggy but I doubt that. 5 days of constant reboots is pissing her off, and effects me when I get home.....lol, cause I get to hear about it.

    Yeah, no home is happy if the wife isn't happy. My inside guy said that any new phones phone from sent via customer service will be a refurbished phone without the update, so you will still run into one problem or another. So just be patient and wait a week or two for the new fix to hit and we'll all be happy.

    That's great news! I haven't had a problem with the reboots and actually had my first one two days ago. I haven't had one since. My GPS though takes forever to lock on. Glad to hear this update is close.

    Yea but I'm not rooted to install the .zip. I'm wanting these issues to be fixed by HTC before I do the root. That probably doesn't make sense but that's why I haven't rooted yet.

    I hope we see this soon. I'm tired of the rebooting, although it had gotten better. Seems to be happening less and less.

    So irritating when it reboots in the middle of an important call or email

    So what's the GPS fix without being rooted? And don't say GPS status and toolbox. That doesn't seem to work or at least not last.

    I don't know if this is what he is referring to, but another thread here someone said that a factory reset after receiving the Ota solved their gps issues. I was dubious, but tried on Sundy. It was a royal pain reconfiguring all my apps (google reinstalled all but the Amazon apps and a couple of side loaded apps) but i am getting significantly better gps performance, battery life, and 4g/3g/1x handover. Gps is still not as good as previous android devices, but is much much better than it was.

    Cold start (first fix after booting) is still over a minute, but warm start (fix within 4 hours of last start is less than 15 seconds outdoors. Clearly still not using aGPs data because indoor reception still sucks where my Xoom or Incredible can get a fix in 3 to 5 seconds.

    Actually...clear cache and data in maps. Download gps status and toolbox from market. Menu...reset agps...download agps...open navigation....then u can uninstall the app.

    My gps loaded almost instantly when I did that on stock Rom. I'm not on stock anymore. Don't see how anyone can bear stock anything when it comes to smartphones
