    All users by the end of the year? Really?
    I've been "rocking" with Gingerbread for three months now with CM7 on my MT4G.
    Ridiculous how slow these carriers are with these updates.

    What the hell T-Mobile! I got the G2 specifically because I thought having something close to stock Android would mean faster updates and the MyTouch (which is loaded with crazy UI stuff) gets the updates faster? :(

    Got my Gingerbread OTA notification to update around 3:00AM PST today. It's about time for an

    update and I'm glad that I'm part of the first few. I haven't really gotten a chance to play with

    it, but here are some of the things I've noticed so far:

    "Screen locked" screen is different now and feels easier to unlock.

    Check marks are now red.

    Calculator is slightly different.

    The data connectivity status now displays nothing, G, 2G, 3G, or 4G depending on your connection.

    Keyboard layout is slightly different now.

    Swype functionality improvement is noticeable. Accuracy seems to be better when swyping. There's

    no longer a pop up box to select the word you intended to swype. Instead, there's real time

    intelligence as you type or swype and you can select possible choice words that appear in between

    the bottom of the text message box an the top of the keyboard.

    The Notification screen now has "Notifications" and "Quick Settings" tabs at the bottom. The

    "Notifications" tab displays the usual notifications and "Quick Settings" allows you to quickly turn

    on and off Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi Hotspot, GPS, Mobile Network, and access "All Settings"

    Stock icons are sleeker. Internet now looks like it has blue yarn wrapping around the globe. The

    Power Control Widget are the same except the icons look softer and smoother.

    The Calendar widget seems to actually display the agenda I have for the current date now and not

    show me the next day's agenda instead.

    In the Desk Clock, the Night Mode dims the current Desk Clock screen and removes the tabs at the

    bottom instead of just turning into a dimmer version of the Desk Mode next to it.

  • EP

    I received the same update notification. It downloaded even though I had the network connection unchecked and it used up my monthly MBs plus some. I received a text from tmobile saying that I am being charged for going over my MBs.

  • Jnelle

    It still needs tweaking, I got the update and it made the camera less quality on mirror mode and the curser on keyboard jumps around like crazy. Please fix.
