just got off with tech support and they stated that the 2.3 would be rolling out on the 15th of this month (july) and that it would hit about 200000 devices per day, lasting up until the 20th by which time they should all be completed. This will supercede the 73 meg update that came out yesterday.

Crummy bastards...Gingerbread is already old news...it has been on my original Moto Droid for months...and they are patching Froyo?

At the expense of the free wifi hotspot though.

My phone is still a free wifi hot spot; it has been from day one. That is the wonderful part about Android...you can do what you like and there isn't much the phone company can do about it.

So it still resets but less?
I am going to update right now cause I have had it reboot 3 times in 5 minutes before. So annoying, it should never reboot.
