Do we dare have an update party??

So....... last week there was a fun (at least I thought so) post counting down till the update.

IF, mind you I do say IF, we get the update this week, do we dare another countdown? Or are we just setting ourselves up for yet another disappointment?

*puts up balloons*

Well I am an optimist, so I say let the party begin!!

*crosses her fingers and hopes for the update*

Popcornanyone?

I wish they'd tell us the exact time when the update will go live. So people would not be staying up all night with excitement. But of course, thats the least thing dev team cares about.

Everyone downloading the update all at the same time does not seem like a good idea (assuming there are still a lot of Instinct users out there, probably since they're stuck in the same broken-phone-2 year agreement we are and Sprint won't do anything about it).

Well i guess im gonna join you guys and keep my fingers crossed. I wont be able to help checking a few times today while at work.

Anyways, for all you guys that already went to the curve or the diamond, come on in and countdown with us, if the update does not come you can point and laugh at us cuz Sprint is clearly playing us at that point. If it does come and makes our phone more powerful than the LHC we can laught at you guys, deal?<img border="0" title="Smiley Happy" src="http://forums.buzzaboutwireless.com/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif" alt="

Deal! I have the instinct now but my touch diamond will be here tomarrow as well. I like my instinct, but I think I'll like the touch D better. If the update fixes most of the problems I have, then I will send back the touch and keep me ol instinct. OR heck, I might just open a fourth line and give the instinct to the wife.........SO MANY DECISIONS!!!!!! AHHHHHH.....i need coffee, and I have a headache.....

peace

You guys can keep the Tooth Fairy, I am waiting for the INSTINCT FAIRY to bring me a magical update that will make my phone work!

It's almost 10am here in Indianapolis, we are hoping the update will be received by about this time tomorrow, so let the 24 hour countdown begin.

I want to like my phone so much, but the stupid thing just isn't a smartphone and even though a woman at sprint told me its "smartphon-ish" it's bugs don't even make it that.

So hopefully the update will make our phones "smartphone-ish"

There is nothing "smartphone-ish" about this phone. I wish the people at Sprint would beat that into their reps heads. Between that and Sprint comparing it to the iPhone, it's made Sprint reputation worse than ever.

With this update they'll go a long way to satisfying customers, if it does what the devs say it will (fix the browser). There are still MAJOR issues that I assume will not be addressed with this update, like Sprint TV.

This update will be a good step if it works, but Sprint still has a long way to go with fixing this phone. The big question is how many people will stick around for the long haul? I'd love to see the numbers on how many people bought the phone in the first 2 weeks and kept it for 3 months compared to the other phones in Sprints lineup.
