    I just got a text message about this update (with a link to the t-mobile community forums). I thought it was funny how they made sure to say "this is not the 2.2 Froyo update".

    You guys already got the update to download? does it come via text? Question, is this a firmware update? Everytime you do a system factory rest, do you need to reinstall this?

    thanks

    Yea I got that message...Clicked the link read the message and was a little disappointed .. yea its great we will get better battery life. But I wanted my 2.2.... I'm running out of room for my apps.. I had to just uninstall a bunch of them.. I use way to many everyday...

    Well I'm glad for this update. The reason that I even installed adw, is because i didn't have any use for the faves gallery because it didn't work right and sync with facebook.

    I tried downloading the facebook app, but that ended up taking 12 mb of space on my phone, thats a no no with out froyo.

    Any one get the OTA update yet??

    Can some one please please post the directions on how to pull this update off the sd card..
    With this update you can't manually check for it...
    So yeah basically you have to wait to receive the update and that could take until middle of the month..

    Thanks to any one that can get the directions

    And a big big thank you to whoever gets the update and pulls it for the rest of us!!!

    i just received my slide today. (coming from bh2) i was under impression there was a built in app for facebook... because the demo model had a setup similar to the motoblur..

    Question.. is that the app your talking about? or just an off the market one?

    It is called friend stream.

    It is a widget. Just longpress on a completely empty screen, go to widgets, find friendstream, and place widget option 1 of 2 onto the screen. TADA!

    Yeah for the favs gallery but that is nothing like motoblur.

    Friendstream is close though. But motoblur auto refreshed.

    I just got the update at 6:00 am in southern Illinois. First thing I noticed was the TMo sync ran and stopped!!! It's about time, I'll play a bit before I go to bed ( I work nights) and see if theres any difference.

    What worries me is that it said anytime from the 4th-through the 19th.

    I've never gotton an OTA update before..will it ask me to install it? or will it just install it?

    It will say a firmware upgrade is available and you choose to install or postpone. This is the first time I've gotten one myself, except for the small security fixes when I had the G1.

    In the notification bar. There will be an icon. Click on it and you will get an option to install now or postpone.

    No, there isn't on the Slide. If you are impatient, you can go to xda developers site and download the update, they have it there.
