    I had this happen for a few days. Then one day (yesterday for me) it magically worked. They're probably staggering the rollout for people, so just keep checking, and you should eventually get it. I was checking a couple times a day, and the same exact thing you had happen, was what I got. Then, bam. Patience :)

    Try this: force 3G mode, then try the update. You'll be punished with slow download speed, however.

    I still haven't gotten the update...does anyone know how long the OTA will be rolling out? Or is it already over and my TB was passed over? Beginning to think my phone is off the "grid" or something because I never got the last update previously that caused all the reboots. I'm still running the same version as I was when I bought the phone in April. I check at least twice a day and get the disappearing window.

    What is the latest update?
    My wife's TB is still on Original (as i had to get a new phone after she took the First update and had the redundant reboots). I won't update her phone until GB probably.

    Same here, also in Los Angeles

    However, I was glad I hadn't received it, because I was in NY, staying at a hotel and was able to use WiFi HotSpot feature for free... which is disabled once you update your phone!

    Saved me $15 per day, for five days! (well, guess I could have used tethered wifi, but it's soooooo much easier to use wireless)

    The update will come in due time. No great improvements, from what I've read.:D

    Well...still waiting. I guess I shouldn't complain as I've been using the free mobile Hotspot almost everyday. The data dropping is starting to get annoying though. I'll keep checking...
