    since nothing official that is coming today, here is something unofficial that says it has been delayed:

    [ns4g] OTA update Delayed - xda-developers
    I came in to post the same thing. >_< No source though, plus with 5% supposedly getting it today, it's entirely possible for no one using these forums to get the update. Likely, no, possible, yes. Not believing a delay until the 15th.

    Doesnt sprint do updates late in the day. I remember for my EVO 4G the update came around 7pm PST. Still time....just go to believe.

    hey just called my local sprint store and rep assured me that the OTA is being pushed out in waves. She said the latest we could receive it is at the end of the week but that an update to fix reception was already being pushed out today! So keep *#*#checkin#*#* till your fingers fall off!

    You know, this might have actually been delayed. Sprint has been busy with a nationwide text outages.

    They do, but I guess it took up their time or something.

    I guess Sprint is as lazy as other companies. I've been calling to all corporate Sprint stores and each and every one of them have confirmed it and said it IS coming but they don't know when.

    Guess it's just a waiting game. :P We've been waiting since May 8 for an update so what's a possible week (month...year?)?

    The nexus doesn't get OTA's from the carrier it comes from Google.

    But the carrier still has to approve the update. It is going through their network after all.

    Then why is the notice of the rollout on Sprint letterhead?

    This is another huge misconception. You can be sure Sprint and every other carrier is in charge of the rollout of updates, because they are the ones who will get phone calls and visits to the store if it doesn't work.

    What is getting confused is that the Samsung is not in control of these updates, since they don't control the operating system of the phone. It isn't like with other phones, where Samsung takes the updates from Google, puts their own software with it, and releases it to the carrier in their own time.

    After pressing f5 on every forum and news source I could think of all day I think I can safely say no one has posted about personally getting the update.

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

    Incorrect, Sprint does not have to approve the updates from Google. Just how T Mobile doesn't with the Nexus S. Sprint does not control these updates. This update was leaked long before Sprint's letterhead showed us. It was GRJ85 before this final version and was leaked by many sources. Google has done rolled out updates since the Nexus One. This is how just about everyone does it, it prevents crashing the servers. Get used to it guys.

    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.
