I'm unsure on how my phone will receive the Gingerbread update, whenever that may be. I recently switched from an iPhone 4 (very glad I did), and am trying to learn about the Android OS and how updates occur.
I'm with AT&T, and when I switched from the iPhone to the N1 all I did was switch SIM cards and I was good to go. Do I need to do anything else to insure I'm on the "list" to get updates? I'm assuming the update comes straight from Google, if so how in the heck do they know I have a N1? Does the update come OTA via a wireless broadband connection, or through AT&T's 3G data service? TIA for answering my elementary questions.
The best way to know as soon as the update drops is on AC. If it doesn't get pushed to you, you will be able to check for it manually. If that doesn't work, I'm sure the update will be posted for download.
