    I thought I was an android geek, but my wife and I just received an update on our phones that took about 30 minutes. We both got it at the same time.

    Here is what I have in the "about phone" menu

    system version 4.5.602.MB810
    android version 2.3.3
    Baseband version BP C 01.09.13p
    Kernel version 2.6.32.9-g34b306d
    Build number .5.1.57.dxs-32
    ERI version 5
    PRL version 52363


    Any thoughts on what this was?

    This is the 2nd Gingerbread update that is supposed to fix bugs that a lot of DX owners were having after the update to 2.3.3 Gingerbread. Prior build was .596, this one is. 602. My phone has worked well all along. But other DX owners have had a variety of issues that you'll see if you browse through any of the DX forums.

    I just got this ota as well. Not seeing any differences at this point. If my random 'unable to send text' issue disappears that would be great.

    IF this update actually fixes the various problems, any idea how those of us who never got the original update might go around getting it?

    I'm a noob and didn't know about that. But when I just tried it, I got the message "Check for update is not available at this time". Probably because I'm on Page Plus instead of Verizon.

    Besides, after all of the bad things I've heard about the original OTA, I didn't really want it until it was fixed. For that matter, I'm leery of GB in general. Except for the ability to sort contacts by last name, I haven't really heard of any real benefits to it.

    But I keep looking because I sure would like to be able to sort my contacts properly ...
