Will said by end of day there should be a fix list.

This was just phone bug fixes, he said in 2 weeks there will be another update with fixes for 3rd party applications (I assume browser, email, etc etc)

They are probably working as fast as they can. You dont want them to issue an update that causes more issues do you? Also when you talk about the money you spent stop and think of what you are going to spend on the iphone. I'm sure its frustrating for you. Exactly why I havent switched yet. It's usually best to wait it out a bit so any fixes can be made. That holds true for most new products, phones, automobiles, etc..

Phone priority

I tested the call priority while watching live tv...it seems as though calls are now coming through while watching live tv. Anyone else tested it?

Agreed. For a brand-new platform, I would assume Sprint was caught off guard with the issues they encountered. Considering this, the update got out very quickly. I'll be interested to see the list of issues they fixed and also what they expect to fix in the next update.

They may not publish that, but it sure would give me some comfort regarding buying the Instinct. I've been on the sidelines waiting to see what they end up doing here...

Perhaps I am not going to the same place where everyone has been having trouble then. This is what I did:

Fun menu: TV/Video: Live: CNN Mobile Live

Then i called my phone from a land line and it came through just fine.

Is this not really live TV?
