    Xfinity TV app not showing up in the market for me now. Looks like it is a known 2.3 issue.
    Hmm, it's there for me, and working fine.

    I have been having issues with the voice to text feature. When I try to send a text using the voice to text it won't "hear" what I am saying and keeps asking me to speak louder. I use that feature alot so it gets aggravating. I looked to see if there was any option to increase sensitivity but couldn't find anything.

    I was trying to use Voice Search and while the screen was flashing indicating it was hearing sound, it never reacted. However, when I hit the mic option in the Goggle Search widget, it worked. Weird and annoying.

    Personally I think most of the issues come from user error. I have had 0 issues, Netflix is that companies issue. They tweeted they were aware and working on a fix to make it compatible. I have also read a couple posts mentioned your paying $10 for 4G. Make sure you do some research, that charge is NOT for 4G. It's for premium data and gives us the unlimited data cap that no other carrier offers now.
    I agree a lot of this is user error. That being said I still think this is a lil half baked. As far as the 10.00 unlimited. That is what it's being called now. When this phone came out. We were all told that it was for 4G service. What we have now has morphed so that everyone pays it now, 3G or 4G.

    Ok guys... Lets be realistic here. 1) Obviously this update (gingerbread) isn't complete as yet. 2) We are missing some features that was mention to be in gingerbread for the EVO. (especially the gingerbread keyboard) 3) Due to the volume of EVO users it seem that HTC in agreement with Sprint had decided to give us gingerbread version in two stages.
    Play with the keyboards - they're multitouch enabled now. We don't have the black standard GB keyboard and we've never had the stock Android keyboard. As feedback on the Sense KB seems to be pretty much overwhelmingly positive, I bet HTC didn't care to give you the option as long as they gave you what you wanted most: multitouch.

    Personally, I'm loving the changes that gingerbread have brought to my phone. The browser text field is smaller than it was before... that's cute. Notifications icon are smaller. Which I would say is a lot better than before. No update is bug free. Tweet, email or call either Sprint or HTC and let them know about any bugs that you've found... That's one of the main reason why they break down the update into two stages.
    Getting the 2.3.4 update soon is simply nothing more than rumor - and really makes no logical sense from a business standpoint. I work in QA and it would basically be stupid to push out a feature release one week after another feature release. That's just not how things work unless somebody at HTC just got fired.

    I am not sure if this is a bug, but it is definitely different. When I was running 2.2 when I went into settings>accounts and sync I would have separate accounts for "Facebook" (I assume this was the app), and "Facebook for HTC sense".

    Now on 2.3 I have an account for "Facebook for HTC sense" but when I try to add an account for the other "Facebook" the option is there but nothing happens when I press it. I can add Flickr, Qik, Skype, Twitter, etc. with no problems.

    Anyone else seeing this? Thanks.

    I've got an issue I haven't seen mentioned. My Google Contacts and Calendar won't sync. I contacted Sprint support and they did lots of Profile, PRL updates, reset my Google account so I had to re-login, but it's still won't sync. I tried to delete the account to reinstall, but it requires a factory reset to do that, so I haven't yet. Anyone have any suggestions, short of a factory reset.

    The Sprint support offered a 1 year update waiver on a new phone.

    The tech support person said there have been a lot of bugs and that we will be getting another OTA update, but didn't know when.

    Tech support also said the EVO 3D will be released on June 24.

    Are you saying that this update (gingerbread) is all there is to it?


    (Q) Have anyone successfully gotten the features - Pocket mode and Flip for speaker to work.

    This was there in 2.2 and functioned the same way. I double checked it on my wifes EVO before upgrading it to GB.

    Ok here we go, my first post.
    I have read every entry in this thread and I have not had any problems at all with this update. All my apps work including Dropbox. The only thing I can suggest is that I always do my updates via wireless connection only. It seems to give me a more reliable download and install.

    I have as many others have mentioned the Pandora issue which was particularly frustrating on a road trip this weekend. I did notice Handcent updated today with a fix for the LED issue. A few things I have noticed:

    1. The Application icons on the home screens missing (using generic Android icon) happened a few times only to apps inside of folders; however I think this may only be when using the new Reboot option as opposed to shutdown/restart. When I shutdown & restart all worked well with no issues.

    2. Immediately after the update I went from 400+ contacts (from my gmail account) to well over 800 with lots of duplicates and also contacts that I deleted over 6 years ago (some honestly I do not remember having in my Gmail account). I was unable to fix this so I took the opportunity to Factory reset the phone and now all is back to normal with that

    3. New Feature (I think) forward contact as Vcard is now an option.

    4. Although the battery usage on Display is very high, my battery seems to be more efficient then before.

    5. Stock mail app very slow. Switched my wife to Yahoo mail app from market.

    6. Facebook videos now play

    7. New notification bar icons and some fonts changed (I like them now)

    8. Noticed WiFi reconnects much quicker then it did before (always fighting that on saved APs)

    9. Found and love the Manage applications 'On SD Card' which ones can be and are not (helps greatly with memory management)

    So far although some issues I think it is pretty

    OK, along with icons showing up as the default android icon, text to speech on IMs not working, Netflix not working, I am getting the following error message displayed after each reboot:
    "com.htc.bgp has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again".

    Not sure what that message means or where it is coming from but its annoying that this and the other issues did not occur before the update.

    It's interesting, I get a message that the phone is looking for updates, but nothing downloads. Maybe it's just as well.... I gather Sprint is pushing the tweaked release June 9th. Hope it flows a little better...

    I'm not sure if this is a problem from the update or not:

    I just updated my EVO from wifi. It's a work "guest" wifi that required a web based sign on. After it updated I am no longer to connect to wifi. It does properly detect it and attempts to connect but cannot get an IP address from DHCP.

    A soft reset did not fix the problem.

    Is this issue related to the GB update?
