  Devices on 4.22.651.2 will receive the following message when this update is available  “A system upgrade for 2.3 (Gingerbread)

  is available that provides minor software enhancements.  Please download and install the following update. System Upgrade 4.24.651.1 (25 MB)”

Update (6/22)

- Voice to text (voice search) and compass problems have been reported and are being investigated by Sprint and HTC.  Additional information will

  be posted when available.

- Voice to text alternative per community member darnatl:

At  a Sprint repair store, the tech  suggested I try Vlingo Virtual   Assistant app.  I did and although more  cumbersome to use, it does  work  with or without background noise.  It  works in situations where  Voice  Search use to work but no longer does.

If it's not right, I don't want it.  So, if it takes them until Friday to get it right, I would rather wait and download an update that works..  As you can see on this thread, though, you're going to have a lot of unhappy people if it doesn't come out today.

No update here (Atlanta) yet, but i'll be patient for another couple days as I know how OTA works.

As for my issues with this update:

  • Super long boot time. (sticks at 4G screen for 3 minutes)
  • Semi random reboots (about 6 so far, not too bad, but never happened w/ 2.2)
  • Voice search is hosed
  • Compass is hosed (making walking Nav directions unusable)
  • Netflix busted (oh well, my Roku works)
  • Few other apps partiall broken (to be expected w/ new update)

Also, I don't have near enough space on my phone (internal storage) for my apps. I have to delete apps every time to isntall a new one (been this way for a while now).

I don't have any issues w/ visual voice mail or whatever, so this update better darn well fix these above listed bugs, or I am going to have a little talk w/ the folks at Sprint.

Yeah, I hear you on that. I'm waiting on a better Windows Phone option from Sprint. Preferrably an EVO clone that has 4G and runs WP7. I'll NEVER buy another Samstunk product. Not after the trainwreck Instinkt, Instinkt s30, and Moment...I'll ride it out with HTC or I'll just quit mobile devices altogether...lol.

Maybe Nokia will have a killer WP7 device later this year.
