    There have been multiple issues reported by people who got today's OTA. From what I can see, the vast majority of us are havig NO problems, but some are, and I'd rather see everything consolidated so we can see how widespread each issue is, and focus the discussion.

    First off - Not everyone will get the OTA. The fix is for a specific issue with the HTC Mail client and MS Exchange where "reply to all" will sometimes add random contacts as recipients. My understanding is that you should only see the OTA if you're on the $45 data plan - but this is not "official" information.
    EDIT: Users on the $29.99 plan are reporting they've gotten the OTA.

    So... if you have one of these issues, vote and provide information...

    My problem wasn't listed, I don't know if its really a problem.

    As some people have noticed my receive volume has gone up, however, as a result, I can now hear a reverb or garbled echo of my own voice in the receiver. I made a call late last night without issue, and just a few minutes ago noticed this issue when my friend called me for lunch.

    Annoying, yes.
    Phone experience ruining? Not entirely.

    Thanks jwm2, I'll try a reboot or something and test call.

    Just for the sake of data. Did you call her or did she call you?
    My friend called me when I had the issue. (Haven't tried to repeat the issue yet)

    I called her, she left me a message on my voicemail as the phone was rebooting, heh. She also called me back a few minutes later to ask me a question and i had no issues then either. So it worked both ways with me calling her and her calling me back. Shes using a Droid Eris, not sure that would matter.

    I did have to reboot the phone after the install and it rebooted itself. I rebooted because the weatherbug elite widget was hanging and not loading up completely. After i rebooted manually it came back just fine and thats when i made and recieved the calls.

    A friend installed the update and then no one could hear him on phone calls. It was like his mute was on.

    Fixed itself after a reboot luckily.

    It seems like it broke sports tap for me. I usually get an alert when the game begins and I have not gotten anything and the game started forty mins ago. It also doesn't display the score on the widget.

    Update made it so I had no access to the internet or to make calls. Multiple reboots and removing the battery didnt solve the problem. Had to dial *228 and reprogram the phone with option 1. Seems to be working fine now.

    Jeesh!

    Just from the sample here ATM, 21% are having issues and this was a very small update. Not a good data point to extrapolate from ;)

    Of course, the update would not install for me, so :(

    SportsTap isn't always good. It's not through ESPN or MLB, it's a third party, so it's not always up to date. Try deleting the widget and putting it back. I needed to do it twice, and now I dont have any problems.

    I got the OTA notification in the middle of the night at some point. When I woke up and clicked the Install button, nothing happened. It just sat there. Same when I clicked Install Later.

    Now, it won't install manually if I go to settings->about->system update.

    So I guess I'm still waiting.

    I'm on the $29.99 plan but I actually do use Exchange email, so I wanted this update.

    Installed the OTA update this morning. Install went fine, however when I went to make a call there was a loud high pitched tone on my end. I could still hear people through the phone but they couldn't hear me. Rebooted the device and haven't had any issues since.

    Am I to understand that many people here who installed the update did not have their phone reset itself automatically? Mine did, in several stages. $29 plan, btw. Battery life has improved today, but it may be pure coincidence.
