Glad to see this out. I hope everything goes well this time around.

Any word on the OTA start time?

Is it already being pushed or will it have a 9:00 PM CDT start like EB13?

I hope we have the options of taking off Sprint ID. Sounds like it is just bloatware

3.) Download 10.2 from the market.  It's free and only takes a few seconds. 

Technology is amazing!

If only there was a way to click a button and have this message transmitted all the way across the internet for others to see...

I think they do it at night to keep from overloading the sytems. I am going to expect it on the last day. So if it comes sooner I will be suprised. Ofcourse if they make the file available I will do it myself. That is how I got froyo.

I did it both ways.  Got the OTA at 3:20 AM on 2/22.  Ended up doing the OTW about one week later.  I hope this goes as smooth.  I will have my Epic and my son's Transform updated this go round.

Can you tell me if any of these two fixs are in the release? Or is it a place to see what small change was made. Is there a way to go check out Sprint ID?

- auto rotating icon will disappear.

- removal of the text message inside of the call log.

The update will place the Sprint ID launcher on your device.  If you don't want to use Sprint ID, just don't click the launcher.  See the thread I referenced in 'Important Notes' for more info on Sprint ID.

OTA (over the air) updates are only available to certain previous releases.  Sprint is working to provide an update to all previous releases for those on older versions.  Once that's available, I'll post a message about it.

I'm checking on those fixes for you.

Update:

Auto rotate icon - I'm not seeing an auto rotate icon issue.  However, from my personal experience, the screen orientation (landscape to portrait or back) is extremely slow with EB13.  I'm hoping this will be fixed!

Text messages appearing in log - I believe this is a new feature as opposed to a bug.  Definitely will take some time to get used to. 

The Sprint ID community would be a good place to visit to learn more about Sprint ID.  There are links to other sources of info there too.  You can access it here: http://community.sprint.com/baw/community/buzzaboutwireless/services/sprint_id
