    One thing is bothering me. When I had a G1, I got the updates over the air and they did not effect the data on my phone. However t-mobile state quite clearly that......."the update will wipe your phone".

    Why is it not available OTA?

    Just tried this - it starts the update then after a few seconds all I get is a yellow triangle and it says 'Update Failed'

    Any ideas??

    No ideas, but I did update it to the latest version myself with no problems at all.

    As for not being available Over The Air, I suspect it has to do with the manufacturer and / or T-Mobile not wanting to spend the time making an upgrade package. Which is alright if they're already working on one to upgrade the phone to 2.0. Not good if they're not.

    Are there any big changes with this update - I mean, am I missing anything by not having it?

    I doubt it Kwozzii

    The change notes are non-existent, and I've noticed no difference. The Pulse is still slow at times, and I've noticed no additional options. I updated to try and fix a problem with my data connection (not fixed) so if your phone is running fine I can't see any reason to update.

    Apparently it gives better audio quality... and fixes the bug where barcode apps just display a black screen when trying to scan barcodes.

    So it is not a later version of android? just something t-mobile have cooked up themselves? I feel a little let down by t-mobile.
