OK so far.......
Updated at about 9AM Central time. Took a while to load, I didn't realize it was that big. Phone did need to reboot for update to install. Now its showing the little circle as if its trying to sync, but when I go to the Google accounts to see what its synching, its trying to sync things that aren't checked. Odd, and I hope its a small bug that will resolve itself. But the phone is working great.
SO GLAD I dumped the Nexus S. Still no fix for that brick in sight.
Update: The sync thing stopped and the phone is working just fine. Sorry if I caused any alarm.
