Other things that don't work:

1- Camera is now portrait. I like better landscape so I tried to use the "camera portrait hack" (change the keys back to landscape) and it doesn't work.
2- Panoramic Mode not longer work. When you try to take pictures using panoramic mode it uses portrait pictures for the stitches but when you see the final result it shows all the stitches in landscape mode, so they don't match!

It is set to 1 but still not "E" in the iconbar.


In some previous upgrades I've done, this has sometimes been caused by the Radio ROM. Maybe that's what happened here. Unless there are some other experts who can figure out what's going on...

It works now. I guess you have to wait for 30-40 mins for it to show up...

Really? Weird again. It's probably been three hours since my upgrade and no "E". I never thought I'd miss a vowel that much. :)

Got the update installed...thought the shadow froze up when powered back up!! :) It took a few minutes for the thing to boot up. When it did, all was well. Now just need to re-install all my goodies. :D

just did the update.........its ok i mean nothing special.
the phone does a little faster, and i mean a little!

the startup/shutdown takes a little while longer i think. but thats because i havent edited out the startup/shutdown animations.
on the fist startup after the update it took forever to start! just connected it to my charger and went out for a snack lol.

im getting ready to take a look at the registry for any changes. i know there is a davematthews.cab file on there and i cant wait to leak it to other people who didnt do the update lol.

heres how it went.

1)connect phone, did the update (took like 5 minutes)
2)phone turns on takes 10 minutes before configuration screen shows up
3)configeration screen on for a good 5 minutes the the cold boot config menu comes on for another 5 minutes
4)phone reboots......:D
5)startup goes faster lol (its normal but it feels faster after waiting)
6)main menu!!!!!

EDIT:
upon closer look of the phone update:

1)communication manager is cooler
2)improved texting
3)major speed improvement

and for anyone that doesnt already know, microsoft also updated their windows live search feature :) so thats 2 updates today! im glad i made the update, its pretty cool

7)all messages, contacts, etc not saved on phone is deleted and i forgot to make a backup (make sure you do) oh and that waterfall is your homescreen wallpaper lol

on the possitive, the phones feels alot faster

Is battery life really that much better? Can someone go about their daily routine and tell how much of a difference the battery life is?

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!

How ironic: Their screen shots on the Update page all still have the large E in the center. :)
