Oh good. While you're here, can I just check that I will be able to stop this update from installing next week? (It doesn't seem very useful)

It will continually ask you to install it.  The only way I know to stop it is to root your device.

Press Home > Menu and then tap Settings > System updates > HTC software update.

From there you should be able to uncheck the auto update check

Page 2B. Settings 33 'User Manual'

Doesn't unchecking Scheduled Updates under HTC Software updates ignore updates silently?

Root is not the answer.

Settings can take care of it

You can do what M.Marcus suggests too, but you will not be able to receive future updates if this one isn't installed first.  And after a period of time, this update will be pulled from HTC's servers.  At that ponit, you'll need to stay on the current release, manually flash your device, or root it. Sprint, of course, recommends you keep your device updated with the officially released software.

It stops checking HTC/Sprint servers for new updates. It means no annoying 'New Update Ready' messages

Rooting can be a great alternative for people who have time to maintain such an operation. I believe they released the "rooted" version of the OTA update rom over at XDA. That's fantastic but people like myself, though I could easily root, choose not too. This is mainly due to the need to constantly keep an eye out for fixes/updates/tweaks etc to the offered roms. I don't have that kind of time so I choose to stick with the factory UI sense. I am a bit taken aback at these responses to the update (I have not initiated update thus far) as unlike XDA, Sprint/HTC has much deeper pockets in which to fund their programming operation. I understand this is the first day of the release, but as another poster mentioned, it should have been buttoned up first.

The main complaints i have, in which gingerbread does not appear to address, is the disappearing recipients when selected in SMS. Also the very sluggish and klutzy touch screen, It's very innacurate no matter how many times I calibrate it (factory or custom). Selecting small items in a browser ie. YOUTUBE playback button is almost impossible without zooming in 200% (In order to fast forward or rewind playback) It seems that flash and the touch software don't agree with each other. As much as I hate to admit it, the IPHONE as an incredibly acurate touchscreen, especially when selecting items that require more dexterity.

Theres more issues, but those are the two main complaints I have that I figured could be easily sorted by the programmers in a small patch.
