    Gingerbread SUCKS...There, It's out. No more trying to convince myself it is the best thing since sliced bread.

    Ya, all the super Wazoo glitz and glimmer are fine, but some of the main functions of a BUSINESS PHONE are gone, like GETTING VOICE MAIL NOTIFICATIONS, like LOOSING MY ACCESS TO EXCHANGE SERVER CONTACTS. I didn't buy this thing as a toy, or a game platform, it needs to WORK...

    What are these programmers thinking when they release these things? And it's not like GB just came out yesterday, this thing is about to be replaced by ICS.

    Man, I wish I could go back to FROYO...Is it even possible?????

    Your best bet would be to root the device. VM notifications are fixed for rooted users.

    What has been lost with regards to exchange contacts?

    I do agree on the Vm notifications. I switched to Google Voice last night. Notifications work fine there.

    Go in to settings , then call settings then click voice mail carrier and check it. Idk if that will help , but mine works fine now. Also I'm using go launcher and it has its own notification app.

    Sorry to here about your problems, but it is not a GB issue! HTC passed it on to Verizon and that is something that should of been tested before being sent out to us. I ran a rooted GB on my Droid 1 for over 6 months and it ran great.

    It's not Gingerbread. Way too many people are running it and have no issues at all!! You may simply have a bad install of the update. Take the phone to Verizon. They will probably first do a Factory Hard Reset and if that doesn't work, they can reflash the OS. Good luck.

    This is due to the update that HTC sent out. It is pretty dumb especially for it being the first 4g phone verizon had put out you would think they would want to make it superior. But as someone earlier stated if you root the phone it has been fixed and there are also other reasons why you would enjoy root as well.

    My biggest problem right now is I don't have the time to fool with it. Ya I'd root if I had time, I do lot's of things if I had time. Jacking with a dang phone to make it do what I bought it for is not high on the list. I get so PO'd with shoddy workmanship I wanna puke, and this is just crappy work on the part of HTC, VZ and anyone else that signed off of this POS. If I get a chance in the next month or so, I'll root, but I'll be too busy calling my Vmail to check for missed calls and running back to the PC to check accounts that weren't imported to my exchange account. Have I left anything out??

    BUT!!! I sure have cool live wallpapers, icons that I can move around, watch Blockbuster movies on a postage stamp screen, and about a zillion other things that don't make it any better.

    JEZ...do I feel better...NOT!

    Is it really THAT HARD to type in full words? I mean how lazy do you have to be.

    Try, " What city are you in? Did you get the ota notification?"
