Before this thread gets all crazy let me just get this out of the way. The update is the exact same as the one that is being pushed out, therefor any issues a person may have that manually installed it can be experienced by someone who has had it pushed to them. So it does not matter how you do the update, you can have the same exact issues.

Personally I manually update and have zero issues that I have noticed.

Same. Manually updated last night and have not had a single problem as of now.

I know the zip file we've manually updated with is the exact same thing. My question is: Does manually updating make it so you always have to manually update now? Or the next time Verizon rolls out an update, will it get pushed to me? I'm not sure of their process, but was wondering if they verify that a pushed update was actually installed/received and since I manually updated, they might not verify this and not send any more updates.

Doesn't really matter if manual updates will be available each time, but still just curious. Thanks if anyone knows.

No update issues. Still having previous issues that the update didn't fix. For example, I cant pull yahoo mail through the mail app on wifi. It tells me that my username and password are incorrect. As soon as I turn off wifi, all my emails are pulled. Very annoying...

When another update is pushed out you should get it pushed to you as well. It's not like Verizon will ban you from getting updates. :D You are safe.

Not to derail this topic BUT..... There is a workaround developed for anyone that does NOT want to receive future OTA updates. For whatever the reason you may want to do this.... Weather its because you love how it is now(your just silly). Or if you rooted your phone and don't want to loose your root....Its on another forum (probably lots of them) just Google search.

So my phone wasn't updating, I went to the store and after an hour there they gave me a replacement. I was just setting the mail account for the email app and I am getting the same error, curious to know if it's related to the new update...

i have a bud that is a tech for verizon and i told him i did the manual install and he told me thats ok, there is no way they can tell after its done if it was a manual or a push.plus i dont really think they care. now if u brick ur phone somehow doing them i wouldnt offerthat info to verizon. and he also said that doing a manual will not affect future updates.its not like doing a leak from rim. which he admitted that he has done.lol

The arrows light up when you are sending or receiving data. The up arrow indicates you are sending, the down arrow indicates you are receiving.
