    Its random. Someone in NJ could get it and then someone in OR. There's no telling when you will get it.

    You will be the first to know when you do though. ;)

    I don't have a TB. But I know from experience. You will see people pop up from all over the map when the update starts rolling.

    It makes sense to do it that way.

    If you roll it all out to everyone in NY, say, then you aren't getting any information on any other markets. You won't know what the issues are in OR or CA. Know what I mean?

    I got the GB update today. I spoke with a very good VZW rep yesterday (Riley) and he said GB was rolling out today. I checked the software update this morning and it started to install. There are some differences and I am exploring them. I seem to have lost two ringtones I downloaded and the applications are a bit different. The Bluetooth process to synchronize to my BMW was very different. It took about 45
    minutes to figure it out (the BMW dealer is still trying to figure it out). Truthfully, I am not seeing all the wonderful things everyone was talking about with GB yet. On the other hand, I am still learning.

    146 MB. It won't download over WiFi, so if you're not in a LTE area, expect that it will take a good half hour or 40 minutes to download. Running the update itself will take about 15 minutes. One nice thing about the official update is that you won't lose any apps or such.
