If you haven’t been able to pull down the Gingerbread update for your T-Mobile G2 and MyTouch 4G, T-Mobile’s not going to leave you waiting in the dark. Nope, instead they’ll soon be allowing you to get your updates over-the-wire in-store. It’s a bit of an inconvenience, sure, but if you’ve gotten sick of all that dairy in 2.2 and are ready for Gingerbread, it’ll be well worth it. August 6th is said to be the start date so be sure to carve some time out of your day and take care of that. [T-Mobile 1|2 via PhoneArena]
