    Check this out... This is directly from a sprint chat session. Seems pretty rock solid to me. :D I have attached a screen shot of the conversation, if you think this is fabricated:

    Thank you for contacting Sprint. My name is Antonio C.. In order to better assist you, may I please have your first and last name?
    13:30:06 [​IMG]Antonio C.
    I know your time is valuable and I would like to assist you by answering any questions you have. Would you like to continue chatting with me today?

    Hello
    13:30:19 [​IMG]ME
    When the Android 2.1 update comes out this Friday, the 26th, will we need to bring our phones into the Sprint store to get the upgraded?
    13:31:16 [​IMG]Antonio C.
    No you will be able to update the device from your phone or by going to sprint.com/download
    13:31:36 [​IMG]ME
    Excellent. And the release date is, in fact, the 26th of March?
    13:32:16 [​IMG]Antonio C.
    That is correct
    13:32:25 [​IMG]ME
    Sweet! Thank you very much!

    Awesome, can't wait to see the full build of it, not to mention what Flipz will be able to do with a full build that's actually from the Hero

    That was my initial thought, too. But, I asked the follow up question just to ensure that it was clear that the 26th was the date. I thought for sure that when I asked he was gonna give the standard, "We do not have any information on this at the time, go to sprint.com for updates."

    FRIDAY!!!!

    Is this just for sprint users with the Hero, or is this for Verizon users with the Eris as well?

    Okay so i decided to do my own test and hit up Sprint chat. I cant provide a screeshot because im at work ;) but i hope you all take me at my word ( i would not benefit from lying). Im not sure if your guy knew something this guy didnt but according to him:

    Michael E
    Thank you David. I will be happy to assist you.
    12:50:27 David
    I was curious, when the Android 2.1 update comes out for my HTC HERO this friday, will i need to bring it into the store to update it, or will i be able to do it from home?
    12:51:26 Michael E
    You will be able to update the software from home using Sprint - Software Downloads - Select your device type.
    12:52:11 David
    okay and just so we are clear that update is set to be available this friday, March 26?
    12:54:01 Michael E
    As of right now, Sprint has not released the date of the software update. On Wednesday, we were informed that the update would be available in the coming weeks sometime in April. An exact date has not yet been given.

    :thinking::( Same s*** different day im afraid!

    I hope you know that 99.9% of these employee's don't have a clue about what is going on in other departments. I have seen official sprint correspondence that says managers should start telling their employee's that NO update is coming in march at all, and maybe not even april. I wouldn't put too much stock in this at all.

    I have been getting calls from the sprint operator "0" at random with nothing on the other end. I called and got passed to level 2 of tech support. I was told the update is being made available over the next few weeks in groups when I asked if my issue could have been related to the upcoming update. He said they were not notified of any specifics date other than the next few weeks.

    If not Mar 26, sometime in April...

    If "next few weeks" is true, then that means April. March 26 is in 4 days = less than a week. :(
