    How do I get it? When I go to settings, about phone,system updates, all I get is "Check for update was not availabil at this time. Try again later"
    What next?

    yea you only read about the problems. no one gets on here and is like "i got 2.2 and have no problems" (actually, there was a thread on that)

    but yea, id check it out on wifi, maybe battery pull, and if u really want it, do a factory reset..

    I would highly recommend getting 2.2. The flash and smoothness is nice.
    Like Abe21599 said few people are going to come out here and start a thread saying they have 2.2 and no problems.

    Yeah, not one single issue here. I had to force my phone into the upgrade. I thought I read somewhere if you start the DX holding the...oh crap, is it the menu select button, it will load into 'safe mode'. From there, I went to the "about phone" in settings and asked for the update. I got the "try again later" thing. So, I reset the phone and let it boot up normal...went back to the update tab...and there it was.

    Settings->Data manager->Data Delivery->Social Applications

    UNCHECK "Sync over WiFi only"

    Then your update checker should work.

    Well now I have the update and will have to spin the wheel of luck and find out the real truth of 2.2. Thanks
