Installing Gingerbread now

The update is available to download.  Go to settings and then system and check for updates. That starts the process.

It has been installing now for 2 hours for me. It just keeps turning on and off and the time is wrong. i removed battery and turned back on, but it keeps rebooting over and over.

 

Anyone else have problems???

Just started the update as well (in Hampton Roads, Virginia). Says 120min to download, 10min to install, and that the phone will restart as part of the process. Let's see how this update fixes the CRITICAL issues and improves the quality of the phone.

I installed last night and it continues to reboot.  I also get a different date and time.  I called c.s. and they said they had not heard of any issues...on another site the person said that the c.s. rep. told them to take their phone in so that the sim card could be replaced.  My screen shows the sim card icon with a question mark, so I might try the replacement.  My c.s. rep. wanted me to do a factory reset and did not mention the sim card option.

It took less than 5 minutes to download for me and less than 5 minutes to install. Everything is installed fine.

I hope if fixex some battery issues along with rebooting and locking up problems.

I installed the update this afternoon. Only took about 20 mins to download over 3G and installed in less than 10. No problems thus far!

it took about 5 min on 4g and so far the only think i have found is a very slight hesataion with changing the home screens and no front camera still that was suppose to be fixed on this update but for everyone that is taking forever and not installing correctly try not to stop it it will cause all the software to corrupt and u will have to get all the software flashed off the device and have to get it reloaded if stores evern have it loaded into the flash machines ////don't stop it if u can i work for tech support for vzw it only causes worse problems    Ok so the changing home screen lag was due to animated wall paper that worked fine with 2.2 but i tried 3 diff wallpapers animated and they all freeze so just a heads up gingerbread doesnt seem to like animated wallpapers

First of all I think only particular programs work with front camera support. I found a program called Tango and it syncs with your phone book for those that also have Tango installed. Works great. Works with front camera and back camera. Cool program. And to help with battery life if you are not using Data shut it off. Extends battery life exponentially.
