  1. Apparently T mobile UK are delaying this update till December. And they even insisted that they would give us the update during September. Will I use T mobile again – No.

    • Lame! Similar thing with many carriers it seems though on any update. They like to tinker around and push bloatware in to the Android builds. Hopefully the Gingerbread update will sort that problem out in the future.

  2. Ok if anybody knows when 3 uk are going to get the update leave a comment if you can been waiting for this thing since the start of october lol
