    Downloaded the update completely via OTA. Then it started to unpack the update got about 25% done then just restarted. The phone booted back up then stated...

    UPDATE FAILED or INCOMPLETE.reason: IP_PREVIOUS_UPDATE_FAILED

    Any ideas?

    I have never rooted. Wifi, bluetooth, GPS all off

    Go into settings, if you have an update section, you may be able to force it to check and re-try.

    Unfortunately I have tried that twice. I did a battery pull and now I am going to try and download again.

    Negative, still failed. If I take it to a vzw store can they manually update it for me?

    After waiting so long for 2.2, now when I try to update, I get the error too. This is rediculous! Hopefully this is a minor problem.

    Took me 10 tries and it finally updated.
    Now I get com.google.apps has failed SORRY and force close and it never stops.

    Reset my phone back to factory and will see what happens.

    Still no luck here after 5 tries... Ugg

    --Update--
    Called VZW tech support and they gave me the number for Samsung 888-987-4357. Here we go with the run around. I will probably just visit a VZW store to see if they can manually install it.

    Mine failed too. Update status says "user cancelled", caused by advanced task killer or a tasker profile maybe?. I attempt to check for new updates and it says, no new updates found. damn you!

    I am on try #6 but I wiped my device first if this doesn't work I am taking it to a store for a replacement. I have been on the phone with VZW and Samsung no help!

    Yup - mine failed too. Trying again right now after 4 previous failed attempts.

    Glad I'm not the only one in this predicament...

    Just got off the phone with Verizon tech support and I was told some phones are not compatible with the new update and they are sending me a new phone but they cant guarantee the replacement will work. They told me certain esn numbers are affected and this is Samsung's fix WTF>

    Not only did mine fail, now when I go to 'system updates' and select 'check new' it tells me there is 'no new software updates available' WTF!!

    Verizon Tech support had me reset and that didn't work. Connected me to Samsung and we did a hard re-boot and that didn't work either !
