    After the update, I can't connect with my Wi-Fi. It goes into an endless loop of connecting and then disconnecting. I tried the restart routine, taking the battery out, etc.

    Any ideas? I'm going to call tech support and see if they can help me. (Not holding my breath on that one. The first thing they always want to do is to reset the phone and I get to lose all my applications and settings.)

    I noticed the browser is different in the upgrade. However it apears the zoom issue is still present. When you are default zoomed out on a page and want to zoom in the browser auto adjusts the screen and places you in a different location than where u intended to be zoomed In on. Has anyone found a setting or fix for this with gingerbread ?

    Again as stated before go to Settings > Call > Clear Voicemail Notification to fix this.

    Unplug your wireless router for a minute or so and plug back in and try again?

    I had no WiFi issues after update.

    Like said before most of the update is under the hood. For the people that use the tunein app it does not bog your phone down like it used to. Before if I had it minimized so it was just in the info bar and got a text message it slowed the phone down horribly. I would have to force close it sometimes. Now it seems fairly smooth.

    Just updated. I notice it shows grey bars for 4g and white for reception.

    Besides that it force closes the stock android keyboard OVER AND OVER!!! ugggh. Phone is unusable since it pops up the force close box every second.

    It says android.keyboard.latin which is weird as well. I am restarting and hoping this goes away asap.

    It wouldn't make any difference. It's not that it won't connect to the particular router. It just won't turn on the Wi-Fi. It starts up and then it disconnects whether there is a Wi-Fi access point or not. It continues to do this until the Wi-Fi is turned off.

    The TV animation is for rooted users who have downloaded an aftermarket ROM called CyanogenMod.

    Did this update not include the video chat through google talk? If so, how do I access it? If not, that sucks, but no big deal. Was just looking forward to it.

    Tell me more about "SIP based Internet calling". I'm interested in making calls over WiFi on an upcoming international trip. How can I use this new feature to do that? Any recommendations?

    So is it worth updating?

    I have no andorid stock keyboard anymore. This sucks. I am about ready to learn how to root because I want to throw this phone through a window. garbage update..I have lost faith in this OS to be honest.

    not a major update in any way but OS looks snappier. I do not understand why my notifications bar did not change colors as demonstrated in other videos. I hope as I use it more I find out that the messages problem is resolved so I do not have to explain myself to my friends parents and other people for sending them the wrong messages.

    Trust me it was starting to get awkward now a days :)

    In my opinion, no. With Netflix not working, no real cool features, no sense update, and the cool features of Gingerbread left out, I will be skipping this. If I feel the need to update, I will root and see what new cool ROMS are built off of this build.

    I had this exact problem. I had to choose a different keyboard, then uninstall the 2.3 one. I could not find a way to continue using it without the force close. Ugh

    I never experienced this issue - was it with the stock messenger app only? I have always used handcent.

    It seems so small, but the keyboard for me is everything. Swype sucks super hard as well now with the pop ups..etc. I went to the stock keyboard, the mic worked perfect for voice to text, and the word prediction was it is gone.

    Android OS sucks..why? they have no idea how to make things easy. I have been using Ios on an ipad and it is so far superior that I will never buy an android product again. Ios is amazing on battery life, the stock keyboard doesn't blow, and it is far faster. I was anti apple forever, but this lame phone OS has shown me the light.

    Yea I have been using the stock app because I have no idea how to turn off the notification of the stock app to use handcent.

    Also my phone had the ability to call people which I did not want - lets say I would want to call my brother and instead it will call a random person from my contact list even though I did press on my brother's phone number. Just weird!!!

    I just installed this one for free. It will work for now, but I hope to be able to go back to the stock one soon.

    It killed my SD card! All I get is an icon of an SD card with a "?" in it, then when I select it in the drawer it wants to format it. I took out battery and re-seat the card, but still no joy.
