    Does the OTA update delete all my apps too or just the RUU?

    One more question...does Astro restore all the settings too? Like email settings etc. or did you have to set up again? Thanks.

    Got the OTA update last night - took about 20 minutes or so.

    Browser seemed a little wonky (non-cached pages load slower than before) but flash video supported and looks great.

    This AM the battery life is unimproved (3.5 hours unplugged with 20 minutes of maps with GPS and standard music player on drive in to office, no calls, mild surfing, half a dozen e-mails, and I Heart Radio app for one hour) down to 50% already on stock battery.

    I have reactivated JuiceDefender to see if it helps over the next few hours although I had read that the batt apps (Adanced Task Killer and JuiceDefender, etc) should not be necessary with 2.2.

    Looking at Advanced Task Killer, it seemed like there were a ton of extra apps running in the background after the OTA update that I have never used (Skype, Stocks, Voice Dialer, etc., literally about a dozen running). I went into the Apps under Settings and force closed them, I don't use them. Will see how that works.

    Any recommendations for improving battery life on FROYO or should I just go get the gorilla battery?

    Edited to add that I had to plug it in after 20 minutes talk-time - battery showed in the yellow ~30% - this after being unplugged for only 4:20 - I heard battery life sucked but this is ridiculous

    Got mine pushed a few hours ago to my Incredible. My phone number is in the 702 area code (Las Vegas, NV) where I live, but right now I'm in New York City working, but I'm guessing they'd go by my area code and not my geographic location, right?

    In any case, it's upgraded. Only thing I noticed right off the bat is that my signal strenght has all but dropped to nothing. This is not making me too happy. I'm hoping it has nothing to do with the upgrade, but it seems awful damning that it's happened only since the upgrade. We shall see.

    Crossing my fingers....
