I've been watching my girlfriend's phone for this update, and it finally downloaded today. The only issue is, it downloaded automatically over the mobile network without asking if she'd like to accept it. Normally, I'd expect some sort of warning when a program is about to download a large amount of data over the mobile network. Now her data plan is shot for the month (680mb download on a 1GB limit plan).
Is this normal procedure for the G2 to not give a warning when downloading updates? And if it isn't - shouldn't these pushed updates NOT count against a data limit? Seems a bit ridiculous to put out these updates automatically and cripple anyone on a limited data plan...
When I got mine it didn't notify me until it was downloaded. So, it might just be a G2 thing. Usually a update doesn't count against your data, but I would check with Sprint on that.
The update was not done on wifi. I agree it does seem strange it was downloaded without asking permission first - normally there's a warning of some sort, but there was none. The first indication that the download was available was the update screen saying "update downloaded, click to install." The bill reflects the large download and she's effectively without data for the rest of the month.
To make matters worse, she's just moved over from verizon, and this is making an incredibly bad first impression...
We're going to the store today to see if this can be rectified.
We were given a credit for another 1GB of data this month. Not a resolution to the 'automatically download' problem, but we're ok going forward.
