    These are questions that have been repeatedly asked and answered on this forum. I thought I would try to create a thread with short answers and links to instructions. I would like to keep this thread short. These are answers found on this forum not mine if you don’t agree with them you can argue about it on the original threads. Feel free to add questions and answers/links. PLEASE KEEP IT SHORT.

    Should I backup my phone contacts before updating?
    YES

    Will I have to reset my Home Page?
    YES

    When will I get OTA 2.1?
    IT IS RANDOM. But all should have OTA by May 24. (For those sticklers as random as a computer will generate I know it is not truly random but close enough for this case.)

    If I have a leaked version will I get OTA 2.1?
    YES according to VZW.

    Has anyone with the leak got the OTA?
    NO. No one reported getting OTA as yet. LOOK HERE

    Is the leaked 2.1ver3 the same as the OTA?
    YES. Except for the HBOOT version, leaked has 1.49. How to check HBOOT version

    Can I manually install the OTA?
    YES. Instructions

    Does 2.1 have live wallpaper?
    NO. VZW says yes. Those who have the update don’t have it. LOOK HERE

    Does 2.1 have talk to text?
    NO LOOK HERE

    Does 2.1 Google Maps have pinch to zoom?
    NO. LOOK HERE

    Does 2.1 have 3D gallery?
    NO. LOOK HERE

    Can I root 2.1 OTA?
    YES. ROOT GUIDE

    Can I root 2.1 leak?
    NO. HBOOT 1.49 prevents root. How to check HBOOT version

    My whatever doesn’t work/is missing.

    Ok. I know I'm on ver2. But is it the root? When I downloaded it there was also a recovery that I did not use. Did that screw me for root? Or am I just thinking wrong? Do we know if someone is working on rooting the leak versions?
    I know alot of questions. Sorry. My phone works really well on ver2 and I am afraid to go to ver3 and get the crap everyone else is dealing with, but root would be nice. Now that I have had the time to learn about it and how it works.
    I know, alittle off topic. Please don't yell at me. I love all you guys for the help and expert advice.
