    Are you saying that you believe the 2.2 update was received because you did the *228 update first? If so, how much longer after did it occur?

    I believe that to be purely coincidental. I personally did the same thing a few days earlier and nothing happened. If you want it now do it manually. It truly is not that hard and it's exactly what you're waiting for.

    Doing the update manually, does that mess with getting any future versions (OTA)? Instructions look simple enough.....

    Haven't gotten mine yet here in L.A. Still thinking of rooting, but in any event, if I don't get the OTA by friday, I'm DEFINITELY going to do it per _Profeshenal's post...

    Doing update manually DOES NOT HURT YOUR PHONE. Just make sure you let it reboot at it's own speed. You might think it froze or quit working, but it's just thinking and processing. Let it do it's thing.

    Daughter got it this morning. Contained within the update are 11 additional apps that are being pushed to your phone, the keyboard layout for texts is changed, several of the new apps are continually running so the battery life is sucking worse than before. And she is experiencing reboots every 30-40 minutes. She is totally unhappy with the update and wants the 2.1 back. So y'all don't be in a hurry to get this, I'm thinking its not the greatest.

    Would that mean by doing the "manual update" you wouldn't be recieving the 11 other apps being pushed?

    Yeah, I got mine on Saturday, it was a bit shaky at first, but after a few manual restarts its smoothed out and is working completely fine. Battery usage is no different, if anything it is better. She should be using ATK

    I have no idea. I think the apps are buried in the update somewhere so I would assume that manual or OTA you are going to get the same thing. I also think that the only way to remove the bloatware is to root the phone but in my instance my daughter does not want to do that so I am trying to find a way to disable the apps she does not want.
