Just to parse that a little better:
You can not update from 1.5 to 2.1 via over the air.
Once you have 2.1, you can get incremental updates OF 2.1 over the air. For example, a week ago Sprint issued a minor update to 2.1 that fixed a few minor problems seen since the May 19th release of 2.1.
The 2.1 update that you can download from Sprint now includes that fix.

Got a couple complaints lol
Google Maps Navagation is all screwed up. It talks and shows the street im going to turn on next and the time it will take to get there but the screen is black where the map is suppose to show, so I cant see the streets coming up or anything. Then after like 4 minutes of running it force closes and reboots my phone!
Internet is good, but after being on it for a couple minutes when I close it, It REBOOTS my phone, and then the market wont work as well as the internet unless I power off/on my phone AGAIN after it just did it automatically.
Is anyone else having these issues cuz they are really starting to get annoying!

Yes. My phone seems to do it right after being on the internet or on google maps. After I get out of those apps the HTC screen pops up with a white background like I just restarted my phone.
Also... When making phone calls... if I make one right after I just made one, it takes about 1-2 minutes to actually dial out. I always question if I hit the call button or not, but then if I hit the call button again it makes two calls to the person. Otherwise if I only hit it once, it doesn't call out until after my screen goes black.
This is with the stock 2.1 update b.t.w.

On my Evo, when I switch back and forth between launchers, and if I have forced Sense UI to close, loading Sense UI launcher causes the white screen w/HTC logo to appear while it initially loads the UI elements.
Edit: Also, I'm lurking on this thread as I'm upgrading my fiancee's Hero. Seems like it's kind of a hit or miss update, but is it really any worse than her current build? The lag gets pretty obnoxious at times. She's got the patience of a saint, so she just works through it. :-P

Instead, I've had a lot of success with using the 'Services' widget to close the "SprintTV" service that always auto-loads. Closing it doesn't fix all the problems (certainly had no effect on the flaky BT) but whenever I have a serious lag on the dialer I go to the Services and there it is -- SprintTV and 0 MB available memory.
re BT problems, apparently the 1.5 firmware was running BT code from HTC but now 2.1 includes 'original' Google code -- but it doesn't support the HTC hardware properly. Yet.

Hopefully this will fixed some frustration I've had with Calendar updates failing to sync, in both directions. If that persists I'm going to open another thread on it. There may be a serious bug there, perhaps related to internet connectivity on the phone. I've rebooted my phone more in the last week than I did in the 5 months with 1.5 ...

I am having a TON of issues with 2.1! I'm on my second phone, my first randomly shut down 12-20 times a day. Now this one randomly shuts down 1-5 times a day, the touch keyboard doesn't work when it doesn't feel like it and I'm having the same 30-40 second lag time when trying to make a phone call that I've seen others have. I was on the phone with tech. support (which I HATE to do) with 3 different people today 'til they finally agreed to ship me yet another phone. Is anyone else having all of these issues? I've done more battery pulls than I care to count. I got rid of a bb for an Android....I'm starting to wonder if that was a good idea.
