    I may be looking into this a bit too much...

    However, when I would attempt to go through settings to do the firmware update, the past several weeks it was told me "no firmware update is available at this time"

    Today, I started to notice a new message that stated "The firmware update could not be completed. Please try again later. If the problem persists, you may need to contact Customer Service Error code:1012"

    The way it is worded leads me to believe it IS available, but either I'm experiencing techincal difficulties, or you need to go into a store to complete the update...

    Thoughts???

    I could be wrong but 1012 is a provision error.

    I only get the "no updates available" message.

    If you're running stock 1.5 and have not done an update before, there is one (moves you up to 1.56, I think). But it's not 2.1 for the Sprint Hero.

    It means that your phone is not connecting to the internet completely, instead of doing a firmware update update you Data Profile, if you still have the same problem then go to your local sprint repair store so they can re-provision your phone or call customer care from another phone and tell then such so they can tell you how to repair it. Usually they would have you do a ##3282# then select edit, then have you enter your MSL then select user name, then press menu and select restore.

    Good Luck!

    Actually many of us already have 2.1 and are just not telling anyone. All the speculation threads are kind of amusing

    You shouldn't be letting people know. It is only for us beta testers. You don't want to violate the rules and get kicked out of the club ;]

    Chuck Norris just Tweeted that he'll be at your place in a half hour to take his 2.1 back! He also said you must now go to a WinMo Phone and like it for 1 Year, afterwards, he might let you back to Android.

    ;)

    This is all true. I would recommend rebooting before you take it in, though.
