No update yet.. Phone is great, but I have had a few problems.. It seems yesterday and today it hasn't been as quick or good about switching between landscape and portrait. I don't like the Gmail integration compared to the Blackberry. I want to use the Mail app, but have it delete my emails from the server. IMAP just uses flags that haven't worked 100% like they're supposed to. I don't show a lot of bars, but my signal has been very good. Internet speeds have been oustanding. This is a great phone I would recommend ot anybody interested in it.

yeah mine delete on the phone and the server just as it did on my Blackberry. I too had a issue the day after I bought it with a lg going from portrait to landscape, I wiped my handset and have no issues since. Infact it seems to operate batter after the wipe. Love this phone everyone should get one

So you have to pull the phone away from your head to surf then put it back to your head to talk, hindering your web surfing. I'm confused, how is this practical? Yes you have a connection with your call and your web page but you can only do one at a time unless you have douchbag bluetooth earpiece. This isn't anything worth bragging about, even if Verizon could do it. Now video calling is worth bragging about. Yes AT&T has Video Share which is nice but it only works one way and few phones support it and even fewer people have it on their account. When AT&T steps up their 3G coverage and their network in general then AT&T will have a good argument, voice/data simultaneous use isn't that great!

I don't know guys jcrow has a point.. I mean i love surfing the internet while im holding my phone to my ear and can't see it. I mean it must be the best thing ever if it is coming fromLuke Wilson..... FALSE... I'm sure thats the only multi tasking your phones do. and assuming your callls or data session wont drop And if your ever in a big enough 3g area for that to actually work then good for you. So for now I'll enjoy my bigger network and if i was so desperate i needed the web on a phone call i'll hook to wifi.

I love the new phone, but the only issues I've had is that friend updates seem to be lagging bigtime. I saw a post on my friend's Facebook page and it showed up on the Facebook widget pretty quickly, but the status update on the friend's contact listing on the phone took a few hours to show up. When I finally got the "new alert" it was the same post that was about 8 to 12 hours old. Anyway, just a little gripe. I know nothing can be perfect, but this phone is about as close to perfection as it gets.

I agree about the stock Facebook App and the App store App. But I use Friend stream, only for Facebook, not twitter, and it updates perfectly and I get a much larger widget and it matches my HTC Sense themes. My recommendation is use FreindStream you'll like it a lot better. With the FB App I would miss updates and only certain friends would show up, this shows all my friends and updates all the time, i have had very good luck this way. Hope this helps!

The update only pertains to Microsoft Exchange users, if you don't have an MS exchange account you will not receive the update

Like most I love this phone, but the moto droid had way better battery life! I could get 2 days out of the moto easily, this will die within 18 hours if it not charged throughout the day. And having long conversations drains the battery very quickly.
