Anyone else successful or unsuccessful downloading the update on 4G????

Update: After trying 2 or 3 times, now my phone tells me that there is no update available. WTF???
What do you mean by "700MB available in all 3 of my storage locations"? The error code was written by a developer, who normally calls RAM memory, of which there is only 512MB, but really only max 368MB available. What are the other two storage locations you're referring to?

I'm going to create a new thread entitled "RAM-constrained phone" or some such. We're always seeing problems when RAM gets around 70MB. I have to use Superbox's "Free Memory" button all too often to free memory (RAM), because the freeable memory that is supposed to be freed up when needed, never seems to get freed up before I see problems.
