    Okay, seeing all the issues people are posting about on the Froyo (2.2) upgrade, and knowing that people rarely post when things are going swell, I thought I'd throw together a poll.

    I regret updating. I should have just rooted 2.1 instead. The interface lags so much and I've had a lot of weird little bugs.

    I'm freaking happy to *finally* have the OTA update. The additional apps are a great touch and I've not had any problems with my phone, apps, or performance.

    I've had nothing but problems since 2.2 update was pushed. Lag and lack of battery life. I believe all the apps that constantly run in the background to be the culprit. So I went to VZ and they told me to do a factory reset.

    I've done this and am still left with problems. It seems if I want to keep this phone I'm going to have to root it, which I'm not very hip on. The whole process seems like a big headache and going into it without the proper knowledge I fear would be idiotic.

    My wife got it and the updated security features alone were worth it, who ever heard of a super smart phone without password protection abilities

    Initially my incredible was working fine with the update. Now I have started to have Facebook issues (not loading post) and my weather. Had minor issues with software like ESPN Sportscent and NFL News but they look to have corrected themselves. Hopefully Verizon is aware of all of the issues and will fix it without everyone having to go their local stare to have them fix it.

    I'm not sure if Verizon, as a company, is aware. I know that when you go into the stores they are not aware and have no fix.

    Oh Verizon knows. What everyone needs to understand is the problems are HTC's. I work in a place and position to know (can't reveal where). This is a case of Verizon not wanting to sellout their vendor. Hate on the O/S, but not Verizon, their as much a victim as we are. Just like Samsung's decision to take all the OLED screens for their own product, Verizon has to wait for HTC to address this stuff. I would get on HTC's forum and raise hell (HTC forum). And no, I don't work for Verizon in any way, shape or form.

    So you think that HTC is the one that is deciding to put Verizon Navigator and My Verizon on the phones and then also deciding to take away uninstall privledges?
