    They could be waiting until hq opens in kansas, so that should be about 5minutes.

    Lately the lack of gingerbread is turning into a famine!!! It is rather exciting and disappointing when you get a new update because you find some great things and some things which were not fixed at all. My hope is for my phone to call and text the right people so it stops getting me in trouble.

    Thought it would be a good idea to have a thread specific to those who downloaded and are running Gingerbread now. Mods, close if you think this is redundant.

    Well, I can't seem to get Netflix to work over 4G. I'll try it on Wifi when I get a chance.

    Now my Evo displays the Voicemail icon in the info bar. I cannot get the symbol to turn off. I have checked my voice mail, and there are no messages. I powered down, nothing,, I did a battery pull to no avail. Very weird....As for any changes,,,nothing drastic...

    New shutdown options. Powering down now just seems to put the phone into sleep mode and it wakes up very quickly. The Restart option seems to do more of a shutdown and it takes longer to boot up from there.

    Well to say gingerbread is a let down would be an understatement. They shouldnt have even bothered updating the Evo if their gonna do it in such a half ass way. Gingerbread on the Evo looks absolutely nothing like gingerbread on stock google due to sense getting in the way. They didnt update sense at all from what I can see. And all of the cool features of gingerbread were not included, especially the one when you hit the button to turn off the screen and it makes that cool animation like a tv is shutting off.. its completely missing as is many other features

    Stock sense clock widget now flips the numbers when it changes time...new 3g icon, new Sprint navigation Icon, and that's all I've found so far.

    They also changed the applications setting's page. New UI that also shows how much memory everything is taking up.

    I can confirm the attachment bug in the HTC Mail app seems to have been fixed in the 4.22.651.1 update.

    When setting up an Exchange Activesync account in the HTC Mail app (at least while using Gmail set as an Exchange Activesync account). I can download and view the attachment and there is no "Attachment is Corrupt" error. I am also able to foward an email with an attachment from my Inbox. However if I go into the Sent Mail folder and try to forward a previously sent email it does not send and I get the "Unable to Send Email" error.

    The HTC Mail app is now at version 2.00.0037.60865. I'm not sure what the version was before the update though.

    They specifically said there would not be any Sense updates in this release. Most of the changes are under the hood. New Copy and Paste, a few New System menus (Most Notably under applications), Fast Boot is really nice, HTC clock now flips (not a big deal at all just pointing it out), New Gmail Notification Icon (again no big whoop), it seems faster (seems being key word), New Browser. Again alot of Gingerbread changes are in the API's and the addition of NFC support. We do of course miss out on Vanilla Android UI improvements.

    I think someone said it, but now Netflix app loads up but doesn't play the actual videos. It tries to and then goes back to Netflix home page.. That being an app specific incompatibility I imagine we'll see updates rolling out soon. I've tweeted HTC, Netflix, and Sprint.

    **Btw it's not playing over 3G, 4G, and WiFi.

    My Evo definitely seems snappier. On 2.2.2 it would get sluggish from time to time. So far gingerbread has kept it running smoothly.
