System update trashed my phone
Yesterday, I received a system update for my Sprint Android Optimus phone. Afterward it trashed my phone, cycling the LG screen and black till kingdom come. The Sprint store could not fix it, so they gave me a new phone. Now my new phone wants to update the system (with Gingerbread), I'm afraid to... was the previous experience an aberration or is anyone else experiencing problems?

Re: System update trashed my phone
I'd be curious to know the percentage of people that are having problems with Gingerbread updates. Of course you only hear the problems here. I for one have had only the messaging problem since the update, which I avoid by using Handcent. My battery life has increased greatly.
I wonder if part of the problem is people messing with their phones before the update is complete. I know mine took around 45 minutes to complete, and I didn't touch it at all while it was doing it.
