    Actually it was the landline side, not the wireless. It'll be interesting to see what if any impact there is on the wireless side though...

    Well, since its on the landline area of VZW, it might still have a little chance of it going up tomorrow.. maybe. I guess we will see.
    *Notice I said MIGHT*

    Hello this is Evan from Verizon Wireless NRB,

    Unfortunately I am very sorry to have to report that tomorrows update has been cancelled. Due to Verizon employees on strike management has been ordered to halt any unnecessary network traffic or actions which could result in possible customer issues. Because the Incredible is still one of Verizon most popular phones the update was one of the first items on the list to be delayed.

    I am very sorry for the delay. I will try to gather more information as it comes in.

    Thank you,
    Evan

    Seriously? I don't believe it. I think someone must be misinformed.

    Strike hits Verizon as 45,000 walk out - CNN.com

    "The walkout does not affect Verizon's wireless customers, and Verizon spokesman Peter Thonis said the company's phone lines were up and running Sunday with managers replacing the striking workers."

    For what it's worth, today I saw 15-20 people carrying protest signs outside a nearby Verizon Wireless store. The strike may be about landline stuff, but there's certainly an impact on VZW store traffic.

    Full disclaimer: I wasn't close enough to read the signs. They might have been complaints about GB update delays, for all I know. Or warnings about gargoyles, bunnies, dingoes, spider monkeys, and knife-wielding lobsters run amok.

    I so hope the update rolls out tomorrow. In fact I was hoping the PDF would pop up. Would be awesome after that last post.

    Just noticed that my battery level was lower than it should be for the use its had today. Went into settings/about phone/battery/battery use/android system. That's where I noticed that under included packages it said
    Setup
    com.android.qxdmlog
    Android System
    Settings Storage
    HTC checkin Service
    Accounts & sync
    Settings
    Rosie Utility
    Network location
    BrcmBluetoothService
    com.android.incrediblec
    HTC Widget Download manager
    Upgrade Setup
    VPN Services
    My question is, has that always been there and I just didnt notice because it almost looks like its a pre download prep.

    Sorry I should have said that this was not the reason for the low battery (I found that app). I just happened to notice this while looking.

    My manage applications force closed constantly while I was in there today. Never experienced this before. On top of that the past two weeks my phone has been really Laggy. Reminded me of the previous two weeks before froyo, it acted the same way. Probably just coincidence I'm sure but I find it interesting.

    Will the real Evan Weston please stand up, please stand up, please stand up...

    If.this was like froyo thread. Now.would be the time a poster would post :

    "I just got the update. Running smooth "

    And 4 hours later a second poster would reply with. :

    "I just got.gingerbread and sense 3.0 update. It is worth the wait.

    Nils Gingersense is awesome! Sorry. Had to do it! "

    Where are those posts?

    Pick one:
    1. there was an update scheduled that has been cancelled, or
    2. there wasn't an update scheduled at all.
    Either way, no update, and we're still waiting.
    Like "This just in: There's no news to report!"
