Good job, HTC. Though it would have been nice to see this update earlier.

it's been 5 hours since my phone came off the charger and the battery has gone down more than usual. I'll see how it does tomorrow...

I received my update this morning. I was then on the phone with Verizon tech support for an hour trying to fix the problem the update caused. My phone was unusable. They had to reset my phone to factory spec. Lost a lot of stuff.
Suggest you do a backup befor the install.

Yeah the phone runs faster but it brings some horrible things. Battery life on mine only lasts 3 hours before it's already in the orange add 45 more min and you're looking at an almost dead phone. Plus on-top of it not I keep getting the notification every so often my phone storage is low....low my a$$ I have over 500MB available (as everything I could I put on my SD card). Also it's getting quite hot lately more than normal. There's supposed to be two updates the one 4.06 software build and a smaller one 4.08 build - if you can get the 4.08 to update good luck as when myself as others tried to update it we got the phone storage is low need to make room to allow for update and what do you know still plenty of room and now the update is no longer available for the gingerbread software build 4.08 - If you just google you'll see there's people having a bunch of issues.
