I'm running Build 3.0.1 as well, any idea how I can update to build 4.0.1? If I try to do a software update either directly from the phone, or from PC Companion, it says my phone is up to date. Any ideas?
Thanks.

Probably network dependent. i.e you will have to wait until the network push it out for branded locked phones i.e T-mobile.

Aaaargh!!!
Got so miffed with it that I went back to my old blackberry bold!

Stuck my sim back in last week and it automatically updated to:
Android - 2.3.4
Baseband version - 8x55a-aaabqoazm-203028D-56
kerna - 2.6.32.9-perf
Build verision - 4.0.1.A.0.42

But its still seriously slow!
Anyone else find it super slow like 2-3secs to launch dialer than a further 2-3secs to get contacts list up?

This is the latest version at the moment:

I have not experienced such problems as you described. Do you maybe have some third party app installed which is eating your phone's memory or something?

Cheers!

@MelbourneArc

i just upgraded the s/w two days ago. i can open contacts and calendar in less than 2-3 seconds as stated by you. i also have a 32G class 4 SD class, although i wish i had gotten a class 6 or 8 because others seem to think a higher class SD card should improve the speed of the phone.
