That's my question: Anyone know if the OTA wipes everything like the RUU does?
OTA does not erase any data.

but there has been talk about receiving the OTA then having to do a factory reset anyway because of all the crap that was loaded on the phone before it came in.

so in the end, you get the same result.
erased all data on phone and a 2.2 update.

the RUU doesnt seem to experience these problems because it flashes the memory regardless. giving it a completely clean platform in which to install.
