Alleged MR update on 11/18

Since the MR thread is "Locked" I will post my info here.

Just got off the phone with Sprint. Rumor is at customer care that on 11/18 (tomorrow) there will be an update. However, before I have a nervous breakdown dealing with all the bugs in the software, i'm switching back to blackberry tonight. I really really don't want too. However,  In a critical situation where I need to use my phone i'm never sure if it will work. Will the phone hang? Will the phone Ring?? Will the phone Lockup?? Will I recieve that text??? Could you imagine your phone lagging on a 911 call because some simple app has messed with the 911 button on your lock screen?? I doubt this would happen, but with all the bugs I wouldn't be suprised. Sprint is and has a reliable network. And I need a reliable, and dependable phone on Sprint's network. I promise I will give the android another shot down the road.

Best Regards

That is very cool.  I think we can expect the update to be pushed early next week.  Sprint usually takes a few days to do some testing before it pushes them out.

So I hadn't noticed any update occurring, but I just restarted my phone and for the first time since I've owned the phone the app icons didn't change and all apps are properly named!  Either I got the update and it's glorious or it's a incredibly strange coincidence that somewhat offsets the heinous day I've been having otherwise.  Thank you Sprint! (I hope)
