I am pretty much in agreement with everyone's feelings about this update. I was hoping that 6.1 would be a part of it. I did get a response yesterday morning from T-Mobile. It's pretty funny(below). It looks like they didn't even know about it after it was actually available, just a rumor it would be soon. I got this after we all found it!
