    Like before any update, do a backup first.

    Backup all contacts and any other stuff you want to backup.

    If you want, I would suggest deleting all userdata off the SDCard (basically wiping it clean) and then do the update.

    i only saw the update issue with rogers canada carrier...all others will wipe user data when doing upgrade

    back up all your data...if it possible without the backup and restore app since it is no longer found on 2.3

    if your contacts where synced with your google account it will be automaticly restored after update.

    other than that...enjoy! tons of new feature and the phone is faster than ever...almost good as the new dual-cores devices out lately

    Yeah....root and install Titanium Plus and then you can remove what you want.

    There is apparently a compatibility issue between the old Mediascape framework and the new one, so if you do the update without a data wipe, your gallery/videos/music player will be constantly crashing, and fail to see pictures/video/music on the SD card.

    I would recommend doing this update twice - first the default PC Companion update, and then a repair. This seems to clear up the problem, and I can now see everything from my SD card in the new framework.
