Optimus Software update
Did anyone else get the software update pushed out to them on the Optimus S. I was sitting there last night and it pushed Swype as the recomended keyboard and some exchange fixes. I had'nt heard there were any updates coming. Swype works great as usual but I dont use an exchange email service so I don't know how that one worked out.

Just wondering if LS670ZV9 is coming with swype as a new feature.
EDIT - Can you do me a favor please and verify you have LS670ZV9 by going to Menu > settings > about phone - SW version
If you have V9 , feel like seeing if it's rootable? please

I have the LS670ZV9 as the software version,
Android version is 2.2.1
Build number is FRG83
I should have checked before I did the update but I was half asleep and didn't think about it
I am on the official Swype Beta also but it didn't look like that mattered with the update and how would LG or Sprint know if I was on the Beta Swype list? Unless they got the list but that doesn't make sense to me.

so is it confirmed then that v9 comes with swype now? I have swype on my phone (through legal channels) but I would be curious to know if everyone with an O-S gets it now. Thats would be sweet.
You could try to root it and find out in less than 2 minutes if you download the app z4root free from the market it also has an "unroot" button so your daughter would be non the wiser what her dear old dad was up to lol!!

SD issue fixed?
I haven't gotten the update yet. But I am having terrible problems with my SD card unmounting while it is still in there. I have to reboot multiple times a day to get it working. It seems like a software problem. Has anyone with the update had this problem and does the update seem to fix it?

reason for this/these updates... (shld of came with these updates bc of the week late launch) lol.
verizon is releasing their take on the optimus s/t series..with LG Vortex
which has swype etc.
however i find the Optimus S a nicer looking phone than the Vortex. very similar, style has skinner and more close together 4 function buttons.

ddark1: The OTA updates are pushed from the carrier (sprint). Your number will come up at some point. It has nothing to do with rooting your phone....EXCEPT after you root, you will want to wait for a "rooted" update from the developer of the method you used.
I have experienced market "burps" on occasion on my evo and my daughters optimus.
