    Default Is Gingerbread ever coming?

    I just got off the phone with VZW AND HTC and was told the Sept GB update was pulled after a few days and just started pushing again this week. What's the deal? I have not seen any reports of the newest OTA being pulled. Can someone help me out?

    I'm sure if it was pushing it would surely have been reported here. If you not opposed to rooting I'd say that's the only way the Inc is going to get GB.

    I've had the GB update for a while and it should be out for everyone.

    Yes it will eventually be resumed. They're not gonna start an update, pull it, and then not finish pushing it out.

    I'm not totally convinced. I remember the dark days of the BB Storm 1 when Verizon released the last POS "update" (328 I think). I'm pretty sure the phone wasn't even a year old and there was no "This is the final update" or anything, it was just the last one they ever sanctioned even though there were quite a few other carriers that released updates beyond that on that were by far better. My point is, I wouldn't be shocked in the slightest if Verizon lets the Inc and the GB update for it just it fade away.

    Not pushing out an update entirely is one thing. But there's no way they start an update, get a handful of phones updated, then yank it and never update the rest. If they're gonna update, they're gonna update all the phones and finish the job

    I like your optimism. Good thing we're both rooted

    the reason the update was pulled was because people were no longer receiving text messages...this has been corrected, and they are resuming the rollout

    God... the BB storm days.... I hated that phone and think Verizon hated us and it too. Kind of starting to feel Verizon is starting to give the cold shoulder to us with this phone. Only difference is this phone is still 100 times better than the storm.

    It's funny. My mom has the BB Storm and she loves the phone. The phone stopped getting updates long ago. But as far as the DInc, I believe that the updates will resume. When? I haven't the foggiest.
