    You'd think a Sprint worker would have some forum knowledge though. Enough to debunk or prove to the curious whether we're getting an update or not at least.
    No because those workers do not get this kind of information. At least not until the day they start receiving updates for devices. That is not their job to know this. They are strictly tech and sales people. If most paid attention, this update has been in the works for awhile and Gbhil told everyone that in a post here. It was coming. Just a matter of when?

    I've yet to come across ANY carrier worker who knows even one percent of what the average forum member knows. and thats over the past 10 or 15 years.

    Witnessed two at the Sprint store today receive the update. The only reason I knew it was it, was because it was GRJ90.

    Didn't need to, we have enough sources that has backed up that this update was coming. Even AC's Gbhil confirmed it. This is the final version to the leaked GRJ85.

    They are just like any other consumer, they receive it. Same as a customer would.. This type of information is always kept from sales guys.

    Rest assured the update is coming. Sprint Feed has always been pretty spot on.

    July 11th has now come and gone with no update in sight. Although I believe an update will be released in the near future, is safe to conclude this rumor was just another cruel hoax.

    Case closed...

    Hmmm guess you didn't read some of the posts I wrote. Whether you choose to believe so? I have already seen a few Nexus's in the Sprint stores with GRJ90 update. Wasn't a hoax.. Sorry to say! Again Sprint Feed has very close and reliable sources. They leaked it, and it has come to some already. Your just not looking hard enough. 5% is a very small number of individuals.

    All the sources posted are credible, and Sprint managers, and others are reporting the update is ready. Again it's not a hoax, when people are saying these things. Or with actual proof from Sprint documents.

    Here is the latest info I can give. A Sprint Employee confirms it has been postponed. At the bottom...

    If you guys want to force OTA to check. It will say Checkin succeeded and say an update if it's available.

    I have read your posts - and all others as well. I do agree there is an update on the works and should be available soon... however, today was not the day for general public roll out as suggested by the rumor.

    Whenever an update is actually rolling out, all of the major blogs post the news immediately; it may not reach every user that same day, but we know for sure is officially rolling out (look at the post on AC blog by Chris Parsons about the 2.3 update roll out for the Droid Incredible 2, posted today at 12:52 AM - that's what I'm talking about).

    That's all I have to say about that...

    Then why is the notice of the rollout on Sprint letterhead?
    Only notice I saw had the Sprintfeed logo on it and wasn't an "official" Sprint letterhead.

    Take this with a grain of salt...

    Posted on a Sprint discussion thread, posted by a Sprint employee:

    The GRJ90 update was originally going to be released today but was postponed. I do not have any information on the cause for the delay, or an updated release date.

    Main page has a post with a screen shot of the delay notice to stores. On a positive note, at least this confirms that there was an update scheduled for the 11th!
