Hello sunshine01!

 

We understand your concern as we too would like to roll out this update to everyone rather quickly.  However, we do not have a date that this update will be made available.  So, the answer to your questions is...soon.

sunshine01, gingerbread is a version of the android operating system.  Microsoft had Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7.  The Android Operating System used "food" as their versions.  Here is the operating systems that Android uses:

 

version 1.5 is Cupcake

version 1.6 is Donut

version 2.1 is Eclair

version 2.2 is Froyo (Frozen Yogurt) (this was the original version that the Thumnberbolt had when it was first released)

version 2.3.x is Gingerbread

version 3.x is Honeycomb (this version is used by the tablets)

version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) (this is slated to be a combination of the Gingerbread and Honeycomb OS, one version that will operate (in theory) on smartphones and also tablets)

 

I am also waiting on the new "update" to come out.  I was one of the few that got the "original" Gingerbread OTA update on September 28th (tomorrow will be 4 weeks ago).  The only problem that I have encountered (thank goodness) is the missing voicemail notification.

Chill out.  It's called a "rollout" for a reason.  If they pushed it to all T-bolt owners at once it would crash their servers.  You'll get it, don't worry.

You did great! By now, I trust the Community has received the Thunderbolt Update which has started being pushed out.

In the link you can also view the benefits of completing this update.

As with any software update, we do recommend a Hard/Factory reset make sure you backup your information prior to completing the hard/factory reset.
