Ok!... I held out as long as I could. I am somewhat ashamed that I couldn't wait for the OTA update but patience is not a virtue I possess. I gotta go when I gotta go. Installed 2.1 via MATLOCKS instructions and all went swimminly. Thanks by the way; best instructions on ALL of the web as far as I'm concerned. Slow long kissess to you on that one. Was it worth it? HELL YEAH! Phone works just like a phone. I can actually make calls to other people and,... They talk back. Have I seen a difference in speed. YES! ALL apps working great and I'm damned near giddy. This phone surprises me daily. Thanks to all of the bravehearted who took the leap before I could. You guy's and gal's are the best! Now; my P-51 is warming up on the runway so I've gotta go. Thanks everyone!
