    Two quick questions on this OTA which I also received;

    1. Any chance it will help with battery life (I had heard it might)

    2. If I had rooted my phone, would I still have gotten it? I have not rooted yet because I knew this was coming but am not sure if it would have mattered.

    My "swype" texting is way off now. Not recognizing any words. Cannot be a coincidence!!!

    THX!

    apparently the delay was normal, it just looked weird that it seemed to "download" very quickly and then said that it was "verifying" for quite a while. It installed perfectly even though I was rooted, I did have to re-root afterwards but that was it.

    Yes, swype gets messed up with .890, menus and help file force spanish (cannot be fixed unless you get the beta) and the texting language is set to spanish, although that -can- be changed to english.

    I got the update this morning, but phone lost 3g connection when ota failed. This is a stock D3. Had Verizon and Motorola on the phone and their solution is to send me a new phone.

    So far so good here. I'm sorry to hear about the problems folk have had trying to download and install over 3G. Mine went through shiny on my stock D3 without any misbehaving.

    So far, it feels much faster, quick to respond, and the camera images have lost the blue tint. I can't speak for battery life, but I've been using Juice Defender, and have a BF6X extended battery on order all the same.

    All plus and no minus from what I can tell after a couple of hours of my normal heavy use.

    What did y'all do to change it back. I set the Swype language back to English and rebooted. Still stuck on Spanish....
