    I honestly don’t think this updated did anything other than remove the free tethering. I have not noticed any increase in speed or signal strength. Maybe a small increase in wifi range but its hard to tell for sure.

    New Market or old Market? The old Market was one of the few apps that would lag for me on the first opening. The new one is even slower.

    My signal doesn't seem much if any better today. Actually I had like 46% time without signal. That's worse than usual at work. After I was finally able to update my profile and prl I still have the same prl as I've had since launch. Not seeing any real improvement. I drop calls constantly in the building before and after. I tried the battery pull tonight, we'll see if that'll help any tomorrow.

    Nexus Noob here, but I just rooted my phone (after 2.3.5) and thought my tether would work again, but as soon as I start tethering, it drops data and comes back after i turn off the hotspot. I installed a rooted tether app from the market that works fine (ad-hoc) but I have to assume 2.3.5 is blocking up the kernal for the native tether app or something..can anyone explain please? Do I need to flash the radio?

    I did the manual update to 2.3.5, updated my PRL and Profile, pulled battery and did some tests both before and after update. It appears my WiFi speed has increased but my 3G data connection has got worse. I can't get 4G at home so I can't test those speeds. I've never had an issue with call drops anywhere - never dropped one in 2 months since I got the phone actually.

    (All tests done from same location.)

    So... I guess this update is meh. Increased WiFi speed is nice but never had any lag with it before. 3G speed increase would've been nice when I'm not in 4G area, not a decrease.

    The one thing I was most excited for wasn't included in the update - a 4G toggle widget!

    Tested my 3g on speakeasy again just a couple of minutes ago, and the speeds are much faster than the day before, when I finished performing the update. The results ranged from 600-1200 kbps. I'll test it again later today.

    I was totally waiting for this to drop before switching to the NS4G from my EVO3D. Now with the removal of the free wifi hotspot, I'm not so sure anymore.

    Really wanted to get on vanilla android without root but the NS4G hardware just wasn't there. The only enticing reason was the free wifi hotspot. With that gone, I guess I'll wait patiently for the permanent root to arrive on EVO3D.

    I downloaded the leaked file but chose not to install. As of today however, my phone has not yet received the OTA update notice so I guess there are many others that hasn't yet. Given the mixed reviews about this update, quite frankly I am in no rush to update either...

    I agree with BlackHawk, I am giving up on GB, so far it has been the buggiest OS release from Google to date - problematic on my Evo as well. I have decided to forgo OS 2.3 on my Epic - if it ever materializes that is.

    Yeah, the free tethering was important for me too - did not use it much, but it was nice to know it was there - unfortunately, 30 days have expired since I picked it up; of course they remove tethering after it's too late. Bah.

    If they wanted to cripple the tethering they would have done it before releasing the phone and Google wouldnt have allowed that anyway since it's a pure Google device. It doesn't even say Sprint anywhere on it.

    So yeah, sure, they COULD technically, technology-ly cripple the tethering, but they won't.
    Free mobile hotspot thru the phones tethering will be disabled thru this update, only subscribers that have the $29.99 hotspot plan can use it.

    I haven't received the update, nor have I flashed it, not rooted. I'm in MA if that makes a difference. Not sure if they're sending the update out state by state or randomly.

    Gingerbread has been my favorite release and the most stable for me.

    Is there a difference b/w flashing or the OTA update once installed?

    If I flash the update on my phone will I be able to receive future OTA updates?

    Honest inquiry - not intended to refute or criticize your statement - what do you like about GB over Froyo?

    The reason for the question, I don't see GB as a major upgrade the way I see Froyo was, perhaps I am wrong to think this way. With the upgrade to GB on my Evo, I have noticed more issues with my signal that were not present on Froyo and very little in the way of incremental features. The one thing I really like about GB is the new text selection functionality, makes editing on the phone much better than before - the new GB keyboard was quite nice improvement as well.

    I think GB on a Evo is never going to run as good as GB on a Samsung device because of the different processors; and, I think of course, it's always going to run better on a Nexus.

    Anyways. One of my phones on my account got the update. Other didn't. And inverse of the opposites for the market. That's why I hate OTA.

    I had to do a profile update to get it from evdo rev 0 back to A. I hope this update fixes MY problem as I have no updated yet of not being able to update my profile. As if I can't... I'm stick on rev 0.

    The only thing I could test since the phones were both in no signal areas: (Showing 0 bars on each phone but had some service; this area just doesn't get service for sprint). The browser is SOOO much smoother. Especially on pages with flash. I did a side by side test on the same site. The 2.3.4 would lag, lock, and not scroll right. Where as 2.3.5 was perfect and smooth. Looking forward to that. Big time. Biggest complaint I've had with the browser.

    I wonder what else was tweaked and not mentioned.
