    Waiting for my update…right now. Happy to see that they’ve finally rolled this out

  • justin

    My Samsung epic 4g doesn’t even have 2.3 AND THIS GETS IT BEFORE I SOOOOOOO!!!!!!

  • jman2u

    What about the LG Optimus V for Virgin Mobile? It’s basically the same device.

    • Ouroboross

      Hope the would fall through. I kind of worry that the update will remove the hidden wifi hotspot feature as I use it to tether.

  • dcyamaha

    i’m with Justin, my Sammy Fascinate (Galaxy S) has no GB. I only had this phone 2 days though(bought used from ebay…and found out that i don’t mind Touchwiz at all)….this phone is a place holder for PRIME…so i’ll get about 8 weeks out of it and the resell it on ebay :)

    • lynyrd65

      Install MIUI 2.3.5, CM7 or just stick with Touchwiz 2.2. I have an epic which only has Touchwiz roms (although we do have 2.3.4 touchwiz).

  • terrence

    Sweet even though I’ve had gingerbread via cyanogenmod this should make more gb Roms available can’t wait. PS Justin its just because sammi sucks at updating their devices lol because they have wayyy too many

  • Ouroboross

    I like how, at the end of article, it says: Released in stages with 100% of devices having received the update within 10 days

    I see that and immediately compare it to T-Mobile where they have the update at stores on sdcard for you to manually update when you ask them. I haven’t confirm this though. But with fucking “4G”, they can’t seem to be able to roll out their updates to my myTouch 4G and G2 and myTouch Slide.

    Just got the update. And it’s ticking me off. Now my predictive text/auto correction doesn’t work, no matter what I try. It makes texting/typing quite difficult, considering the keyboard is hard to use anyways. What can I do to fix this problem???! Anyone?

  • Dev Kai.

    I am completely satisfied with gingerbread…very satisfied. Just got it this morning

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_UK6A7AD2ANMEIQ72CS737FAV44 Michelle

    This update made my phone slower, the icons are not as smooth looking, the keyboard is even harder to type on, and it is hard to tell how much battery is left because the icon is squished. not happy at all!!!!!

  • http://twitter.com/whosdyingnow Tyler Bailey

    Ugh I can’t stand the new keyboard. The autocorrect feature may as well not even exist because it’s worthless.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_RWIL57AD6S2V6DQFOVUPC7UWAM Lindsayyy

    I hate this new update! I want a knew phone!
    It’s worthless!
    I hate the new taskbar, the auto correct doesn’t even have words like ‘hey’ anymore.
    Wtf?
    Is there any way to undo this?
    Unsatisfied, to say the least.

    Dude this update is shit.

  • David Burr

    if you are having problems with the keyboard after updating then all you should have to do to fix until they release the fix for the update is go to the market and search for keyboard the first option should be gingerbread keyboard from android 2.3 install that keyboard then go to settings/language and keyboard/change keyboard to the gingerbread keyboard will fix the keyboard issue until fix is found

  • aspire56

    my keyboard auto/ predict words dont wor now. plz fix

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=504127140 Chris Kipp Norton

    I agree with everyone else. this update sux. main thing is the auto correct on texting. only displays names from contacts and not actual words. I also have an issue that the phone will no longer charge when connected to a computer; only through the wall or car charger. I didn’t like this phone before and now it’s even worse.

  • David Larsen

    Directly after updating my phone, I began to experience issues with the BlueTooth Audio: My media applications will play audio through my headset perfectly for about 15 to 30 minutes (varies), then it will stop playing entirely. Nothing seems to fix it short of a cold reboot. Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_7J4JEDXV4QQZWD6T3PHXOXPS5I AC

    The 2.3 update is junk… LG needs to fix this ASAP.

  • http://tinfoilandtea.tumblr.com Libel

    glwhtwkhg the notification bar is terrible ugly green. Argh. Aside from that the update is wonderful; everything is faster and working as normal.

    I really hate the notification bar though. xD

  • Sharo Hawrami

    At least i got my hotspot glitch back. Ah free hotspot.

  • fordranger

    yea this update definately fucked my phone up. screen wouldnt come on to unlock it and kept sayn my memory card had been removed then it would repeatedly say preparing memory card. and customer service reset the phone ,didnt work. gave me a new one and that didnt work.although idk why they thought that would help. fix the update or remove it just do something or i gaurantee ull lose a lot of costomers

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VGZVFDSRYWW3NAZUMH25QJDBQM Matt

      I have the same issue with the mem card messages. Plus my phone is locking up on the “Android” boot screen several times per week. Never had these issues on 2.2.

    now i can’t download music onto my phone from my computer. this update made my phone slower if anything. my phone charges but it doesn’t seem fully connected to the computer even with usb debugging. how do i fix this?

  • Dev Kai.

    Can’t put ANY music on my phone through wmp. I’m highly pissed. its so bad to the point where I’m willing to buy a brand new better phone.
