    I'm def going to miss this phone though.

    I just spoke to HTC tech support. They claim that the updates (actually there's more than one) will help or eliminate the "low memory issue." If that's true it's a gamechanger for me. I'm still going to wait a while, and of course do a thorough backup before installing. The tech also said there's not way to remove the update notification without root.

    I'm waiting I think.

    Got the update, installed it figuring I will be upgrading phones sooner rather than later. I decided to come on here while it installs to see what this updates all about, and got a bit freaked out after reading the negative reactions. I looked down at my phone (rooted), and it said installation aborted. Whew. I guess I'll pass on this one.

    I installed the update this morning. Took a VERY long time after the phone rebooted to get passed the Droid eye bootup screen. I almost thought I was going to have to pull the battery. However all worked well and it installed.

    The good news is that I was having problems with HTC shutting down when I was in the internet browser or playing a game. With this new update, HTC did not shut down and thus I did not have to wait on any annoying bootup.

    Of course I will find out tonight about 2am if I also have to endure the continuous reboots.

    Wish me luck!

    Anyone figure out how to stop the nag if we Don't need or want the update?

    I hope there is a way to stop the update requests as my wifes phone has yet to be updated. My local store stated it will eventually become a forced install and you can only delay it for a short time?? Not sure, but who knows

    I'm willing to install the update if it means stopping those nag screens! Man, the whole day has been annoying. I'm not having any problems with anything, so if anyone has a way to end these nags, let us know!

    Getting the update now. If it hoses the phone I guess I'll just use it as a excuse to leave Verizon. The new plans suck big time for the individual with just one devise.

    Same for me. NES! And then after cleaning up a bit, I go back to About Phone -> Software Update it says everything is up to date.

    So far it seems to be holding up. No issues found yet on mine. Keeping my fingers crossed though. LOL

    That's what happened to me when I couldn't take seeing that popup constantly. At least I won't have to deal with that nag screen anymore until it gets pushed to me again.

    I have the new update and can confirm it does not fix the "low on space" issue.

    Skipdawg Well-Known Member

    I use to get that till I installed the "One Click Cleaner" Last Fall. Have not seen that message again. Have had no space or cache issues since. ;)

    Just tried your suggestion, didn't help.

    This looks like a design flaw with the phone that can never be fixed. They left some of the partitions too small.

    The only successful fix I've heard of requires rooting. Once that is done there is a fix that increases the Application data storage size from 150mb to 750mb. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post direct links, so do a google search for:

    [HOW TO] Fix the "Low on space" problem (in plain English)

    I can tell you this about the wonderful update,...
    It is sucking my battery down daily, I "need" to charge daily, instead of once or twice weekly.

    It must depend on what all you have installed. I don't do games or music off mine. Plenty of space and all. So as long as it holds out I guess I'm staying with it. Not to impressed with the plans on other carriers either.

    Still no issues after the update here. I pre-ordered one week prior and got this baby day one so likely from the first batch I would guess.

    the nag screen seems to lessen after the first day - I haven't actually seen it at all today and only once yesterday when I went to look to see if somehow I accidentally updated it (because I hadn't seen the nag screen then either)

    HTC tech supported left me email with instructions to save off pictures and contacts and then do an OS wipe/reload. And said if it wasn't fixed (or temporarily fixed they said) then either I'd have to send it in to HTC for repair, or Verizon would have to replace my phone. Verizon will replace it, with a purchase. I can't send my phone in for repair as it's a business phone lol. At this point, they've found a way to sabatoge my unlimited data plan as that's the only thing destroyed right now.

    More likely than not, YOU could fix it with help on these forums you are using. Have you ever reset the phone? Have you accessed your files through a computer? Could you move all your personal, don't want to lose stuff to your memory card? If you can do these things you can fix it yourself.

    fine. I quit whining long enough to back it all up and reload the OS. Internet is working again. Verizon said it could be temporary as the install will eventually come back and force itself on. I don't know a thing about the rooting and being able to deny the update for good.
