Hey, first, I'm sorry to see more people having the same problem. I did get a little better info from a sales dude who seemed to be pretty darn cell-phone savvy. He told me the MyTouch3G has 192MB RAM and that the Optimus T has 512MB (and that's what I've seen online) - which would explain why the Optimus T was flying using the 2.2 version of Android. It was doing all the same updated things...only WAY WAY WAY faster. The Optimus T is quite similar to the MT3G, so I'm not too bummed to be swapping it out. I did make the official request for an exchange. We'll see what I get in the mail - the chat agent referred to it as an "LG Optimus Titanium A-Stock Kit (Alternate Exchange)." Seeing will be believing. It's absolutely ridiculous that I have to pay $10 or $20 for shipping due to an update THEY sent out. I'm still debating whether or not to argue that point further...I want to see what they send me first. Have a great weekend.
