    So I was in love with this phone, and I had no sort of problem at all. THEN, I see the red and blue arrows so I had to update, which I knew wasn't going to do alot, but should help the phone out. It didn't. After it was done, my phone had the slowest lag I've ever saw, and when I would unlock the phone it gave me a static white screen sometimes before going to my home screen. Its horrible!

    I just want to go back to how it was, I had no mounting problems ect. Anyway to do this? Would it be the ODIN program?

    Thanks.

    First try a factory reset. If that doesnt fix it, then you can use Odin to go back to the old software.

    Thanks Kam. Factory reset did wonders to the speed. Still have the static white screen when unlock though =/

    That static white screen is a bug of the update. You can go back pre-update (and lose the advantage of the update) by just ODIN'ing back.

    Just adding in: there are reports that if you flash to another version you will be unable to get the update automatically again. The best idea we have so far is that T-Mobile essentially checks you off as already having the update and blocks the phone from getting it later.
