We are supposedly signed up for it, bit IIRC Verizon has rights to it for a little while. I am just hoping it is out by February as i have two lines that are on upgrade at that time. Seems me and you got our mytouches roughly the same time. I like you haven't had hardly any issues besides a annoying back button, which I called T-Mobile on and they replaced it no questions asked. I in the end got a GB mytouch as old one was froyo and the battery life was terrible. GB is so much better. I litterally went from 8 hours to almost 16 with same use. I was considering selling the device and cutting my loses as i was so disappointed in battery performance. Not the case anymore. I have actually been very content with this phone. Only reason I would upgrade is for ICS and maybe a bigger screen, lol! Only way to get GB is true a retail store near you as they may have one on a memory card to update it, or wait for the OTA (over the air) update, but is going slowly that way. Honestly if having all those problems the OP had, then send it back for a warranty replacement and more than likely you will get a pre-installed GB phone, which fixes a lot of issues.
