    T-mobile needs to look up “soon” in the dictionary.

          It doesn’t matter. The Gingerbread update for the Nexus One should be pushed out within the next 60 days, which is fine with me. Since Google doesn’t need to go through a lot of beta testing to ensure it will work on a specific hardware set that it knows very well, I don’t anticipate either a long wait nor compatibility issues when it arrives.

    Seriously? The 2 year old MyTouch gets 2.2 before my super fast Vibrant? I mean sure I have a 2.2 ROM on it but come on now Samsung/T-Mobile.

          Glad you like it, but I’m sitting this one out.

          I saw it at Best Buy (side note: Nobody there was an expert on the phone, and it was kept locked in a drawer, not out on display) and while it moved impressively and the screen was nice, I couldn’t understand why the SD card was left off, why there was no notification light–these things are sort of Cellphone 101 these days–and I was hesitant about buying a very expensive single-core phone on the eve of the arrival of the dual-core phones, which should be shipping within 60 days of the debut of the Nexus S.

          I opted instead for a used Nexus One, which, while not as powerful as the Nexus S and a lesser phone in several areas, provides the same Pure Google experience that I wanted, cost me much less than the Nexus S, and will keep me happy for the next 12 months until a dual-core Nexus makes it way to the market, ready to take advantage of Ice Cream (or whatever the post-Honeycomb OS will be named).

        • g2 user !

          i know tell me about it … the day or the day after it was out i wetnt to the mall here at baybrook n went to a best buy mobile store i did not find it for show case i had to ask someone who worked there to show it to me , the next thing they do is go to the back and take it out how weird is that . but hey she let me have it in my hands it felt ok i passed thru the home screen it looks nice…..
          now to wait for that on my g2 !! mmm i kan smell it already its soon for an update for my lovely g2 .

      well, considering the MyTouch was coming from 1.6 – I’m glad it got the update. Of course I just bought a Vibrant so I’ll be downgrading from 2.2 on MyTouch to 2.1 on the Vibrant, but at least it will be wonderful compared to what 1.6 was like. Hopefully I’ll be satisfied with 2.1 – I’m already trolling for info about the Froyo update for Vibrant =)

    I’ve had the 2.2 update for a few months now and I’m slightly disappointed.

    Two Things:

    1. It’s supposed to have flash 10.1 but the browser doesn’t allow you to view some websites in the non mobile version. No matter how many times I click “switch to desktop” or something like that it always reloads the mobile version.

    2. Gmail is smoother but the screen size is reduced! There is an annoying bar at the top which cannot be disabled and follows you as you scroll up or down. That combined with the bottom bar reduced the viewing screen size to about 2 inches or less.

    On the plus side a lot more apps are available including Angry Birds!

    • pg

      Jay to be able to have Flash 10.1 you need at least a Cortex A8 processor, so unless you comment is about 2.2 on the Vibrant please do more research before complaining. Also typeing in about:debug in your browser on vanilla Android will usually let you change the browser to desktop(UAString).

      • Thomasbaay2

        pg About:debug is broken on stable 2.2′s so please do more research before posting.

      Complain all you want Joy. My girl has the FroYo mt3g and she was highly disappointed. As you said no Flash, no live wallpapers, its not even faster let alone 2-3 times faster due to JIT, and its still buggy. 2.2 on the mytouch is more of a skin over Donut on that thing. The 3.5mm and fender will probly have the same problem but the Slide SHOULD do better.

    • dale murphy

      Jay, I had the same issue with not being able to use ‘classic’ mobile and defaulting to the mobile version on most web pages even when on the desktop setting. I now use the Skyfire browser (download from Market). The desktop setting actually works on that browser and video streams very well.

        I second that. I was happy to learn last Fall that my phone would finally receive an update to Froyo, as a another phone in the family (a Cliq) still languished, waiting for its upgrade.

        I downloaded the Froyo update on my MT3G and while it added a few nice functions to the phone, proprietary junk like the Faves app (which can’t be deleted from the phone without rooting) just took up space and added no value. While it was swell that the update added additional widget functionality, too many widgets and shortcuts on the 5 screens brought the speed of the phone to a crawl.

        After realizing that Froyo was stretching the limits of the phone’s ability, I bought a Nexus One on eBay and haven’t looked back. In addition to simply being a more powerful phone than what I gave up, it is free (and will remain free) of the proprietary junk carriers slap onto their iterations of the Android OS. Wonder why the update for the Fender and MT3G Jack took so long? Getting the phones to play nicely with Faves and other non-standard apps had a lot to do with it. The Slide will add the additional complication of having the Espresso UI work with Froyo.

        From now on, I am simply letting Google push me the new OS when it is ready. I don’t want any manufacturer’s UI “improvement”, nor a carrier’s “enhancement” apps. I am not interested in the Nexus S (too much money for a phone with such glaring omissions), but when the next Nexus phone comes out, I will happily consider moving to it.

        But my days of trusting Samsung, Moto, HTC–or T-mobile–to swiftly provide the updates are long gone.

        • Wflames

          Same here. I don’t see any benefit for the 2.2 on the2 MT3G phones I have. After I received it my phones began to run super slow. Not worth the update and over hyped.

    t-Mobile is so slooooowwww with these updates. especially those with manufacturer UIs are even slower if they get the updates at all. i think from now on, for me, my next purchase (if Android) will focus on a Google Nexus Series since I know Google WILL PROMPTLY be pushing those updates directly as opposed to waiting for manufacturers and/or t-mobile to send out these updates.

    • http://twitter.com/FR35HM1NDZ Jamille Browne

      G series or Nexus series are the ones to go for.

      It isn’t just T-mobile that has a problem in this area. ALL carriers are slow in getting the updates out, since they went ahead and loaded the OS with a bunch of crap apps in the first place.

  • froyoy is molasses

    Yeah no mentio of the damn slid, maybe we’ll get lucky and get 2.3 they did it for the droid. Htc gave it 2.1 instead of 2.0 maybe can be nice and repeat itself.

  • yyevo

    Once again, you are blaming the wrong source. TMobile doesn’t make the software or handsets, they just sell them.

    HTC is responsible for the updates on the MyTouch phones, not TMobile. Samsung is responsible for the updates for the Vibrant, not TMobile.

    It’s like complaining to Best Buy because your new laptop hasn’t gotten updates.

    • Anonymous

      That is completely incorrect.

      Aside from pure Google phones (the Nexus One and S), Android phones released by US carriers have some sort of carrier-specific touches added to the OS. That is the nature of Android in the US. Thus a Galaxy S phone from Verizon has some software not found on the version from AT&T, which in turn is different from the one from T-mobile, and so forth. Didn’t it strike you as odd that some Android phones from Verizon come with Bing instead of Google as the default search engine? Carriers get money from third parties to add apps to the OS (which can’t be deleted without rooting), and otherwise add “enhancements” (such as the ridiculous “Faves” app on the T-mo version of Froyo, or the WiFi calling app on the MT3G Slide).

      Unless and until the update can be released without breaking all these add-ons provided through the carrier, it won’t get released. So, yes, T-mobile does share a portion of the blame for the delay in updating the OS on phones sold for its service.

          Next time, when you don’t know, just say “I don’t know” and spare yourself the embarrassment of being so wrong in public.

          Take a look at the MT3G with Froyo: the Faves Gallery is not a stock Android 2.2 feature; the Visual Voicemail is not a stock Android 2.2 feature; the on-screen controls on the camera are not stock Android 2.2; the interface on phone calls is not stock Android 2.2. Those are just the examples which come immediately to mind, but for sure there are plenty more.

          EVERY carrier makes its own modifications to Android, tailors it in one way or another to attempt to make the phone special. The “Genius Button” on the MT4G? It is Dragon software licensed by T-mobile and is not a standard Froyo feature. When the time comes to upgrade that phone to Gingerbread, the software engineers will have to devote man-hours to making sure the Genius Button feature works in Android 2.3 as it did in 2.2.

          This is entirely the responsibility of T-mobile, and it is the reason the carrier has to sign off on the release of an OS update.

          As for Verizon, they installed Skype in an exclusive arrangement they had with that company, and when the time comes to update those phones to 2.3, Verizon will have to make sure the Skype app works as it should without breaking some other aspect of the phone. This scenario is played out over and over with each carrier–look at a Froyo phone from AT&T and see how many “features” there are which weren’t from Google; all of those will have be reshaped to work with Gingerbread when it is time to upgrade those phones.

          This is one of the biggest reasons why OS updates take months to be pushed out following the release of the stock OS.

          The fault, ultimately, rests with Google, for their failure to demand that carriers toe the line with the OS. All Google cares about is getting a bazillion Android phones out in use and harvesting all that data from the users. They have allowed the carriers to make whatever changes the carrier wanted to the OS, in exchange for the carrier releasing the phone. That is why they suffered the karmic payback of Verizon installing Bing as the default search engine in various phones.

        • Anonymous

          they are not responsible for putting it on the phone, but they are responsible for requesting it and approving it. There is no way under the sun that you can suggest that Tmobile was forced to buy and sell a phone as is….

      • Pacerfan71

        T-mobile is to blame for the missing FFC no flash for the camera the added built in apps The Sims on the Vibrant…. They are also responsible for other things on the phones they why do you think all the GalaxyS phones out of the US are now updated to 2.2 but not in the US the Carriers here had so much changed on them now Samsung has to work on each phone individually still Samsung has lots to blame as well as HTC for the Mytouch lines but Carrier and Manufacturer are to blame here.

    The update practically bricked my MT3G – everything sucks on it now. Slow, slow, slow, force closes all the time, doesn’t recognize usb, can’t unmount sd card, randomly switches from landscape to portrait, gallery takes forever to load content, constantly switches from E to 3G and back…had NONE of these issues before OTA update. Phone worked MUCH better on 1.6.
    Spoke to cust svc & tech support NUMEROUS times and I performed the suggested factory reset THREE times – still no improvement. TMO will not replace the phone or offer me any type of discount because I can basically only use my phone to surf the net on wifi. I’m pretty upset about this, and I’m really mad that TMO won’t just send me a replacement phone and I’ve been a customer for EIGHT YEARS….Suggestions anyone? Thanks!

      Phil, ask to talk to the Customer Loyalty department. Be nice, but firm. Don’t threaten or accuse. Just tell them that you expect the phone to be replaced because you are an 8 years loyal customer. They will probably do it, but if they don’t, just tell them that they force you to look at other carriers. They want to keep customers, not lose them. Most likely, you can get it done.

      • Phil

        Thanks for the response. I did speak to loyalty, and they offered me “valued customer” pricing on a new phone – $49 for an LG Optimus T and $249 for MT4G, with a two year contract renewal (I’m 8 months out of a full discount). I pressed them and said I was going to explore other carriers, but they wouldn’t budge. I was never rude with the reps, and was actually overly thankful for their help, but all I was offered was the above. Kind of upsetting. I basically said I’ve been a customer for 8 years, and everything was fine before this update. I said I did everything tech support told me to do and the phone still is messed up. I said I just want a phone that works the way it’s supposed to work. I do not want my contract extended at this time because there’ll be much better phones out in 8 months than there are now. I told the rep this, and still nothing…oh well…

      • Anonymous

        Great suggestion for anybody on T-mobile. I dealt with Customer Loyalty over a T-mo screw up in ordering my wife’s phone, and they can make things happen that Customer Service can not. Just remember, as Bill said, don’t come in with guns blazing. Treat them with respect, keep your cool, and you’ll most likely be very satisfied with the outcome.

        As to Phil’s outcome, just shop eBay for a phone for the time being if you want to keep your powder dry until the dual-core phones come out. Their offer, to my eyes, is very fair, since they’re allowing you to get your contract-renewal phone now, and either phone offered should be head and shoulders better than the MT3G (I had mine updated as well). I bought a Nexus One on eBay, and figure by year’s end I’ll be in the market for whatever dual-core, 1080p, HSPA+ beast is the flavor of the moment for my contract upgrade. In the meantime, the N1 is so much better than the Froyo’d MT3G that I feel as if I upgraded to a MT4G.

    There is a lot of complaining about companies taking there time with updates. I remember when updates hardly ever came out and when they did you needed a degree in order to install them. I worked in data tech support for years and I can personally tell you that it is both the carrier and the manufacturer they produces the software on most phones. They work together to get the updates created and sent. Please remember this I would rather get an update that is a little late than an update that’s early and makes my phone a POS.

    Will this update include Google maps 5.0 with vector mapping/compass and 3d buildings? I am not looking for much fancy stuff, but I at least need vector mapping/compass and caching ability to Google maps on MyTouch 3g 1.2.

    • Anonymous

      The update most likely won’t include the Maps 5.0, but by getting Froyo it will become available to you in Marketplace or through updates. However, your phone’s CPU won’t have the horsepower to do the vector graphics without choking, but you might be able to do the caching of map data.

      • Cnonline1

        Well currently I have the MT3G original Froyo ROM installed and I also have Google Maps 5.0, but vector maps/caching does not work for it. Although vector maps and map caching works pretty good in the navigation. I do not understand why this is happening. Some one in different forum explained that it may be because of the Open GL 1.xxx (MT3G 1.2) while maps require Open GL 2.xxx (other latest phones). I do not completely agree with the explanation given since MT3G 1.2 supports vector maps/caching in navigation so it shall also support in maps. May be Google maps application requires some update to have it running on all android devices. Thanks for posting though.

    My question is how would you push an upgrade to myTouch? I tried Fimrware Upgrade in Donut but it still says it’s current and the *#*#xxxxxxx*#*#*# thingy doesn’t work yet either =(

    I bought mytouch 3G 3.mm version from Ebay and unlocked it and am using it on Wind mobile in Canada. Will I still get the update or do I have to be with T-mobile?????? Ahhh

      Nope, you have to be running on the T-Mobile network.

      I updated mine with a Wind sim card in the phone

  • Elbaldwinjr

    has anybody gotten the update yet?

    • Cnonline1

      I am wondering too. I keep checking the system updates tab in Settings > About phone. BTW I have rooted stock rom 1.6. Not sure if I will get it or not.

      Your myTouch handset will not receive the update if it is rooted. Un-root your myTouch and you should receive the update in the next 2 weeks.

  • Torin

    so should i reset my phone to see if it being rooted is holding the upgrade back

    My MT3g is downloading the OTA 2.2.1. It started at approximately 1:00am and downloading via EDGE. Im currently in a small town called Chimayo in New Mexico. Hope you all get yours soon!!! :-)

    anyone else have the following issue?

    1. Power Off
    2. Boot to Android system recovery by holding Home+Power
    3. Can scroll to any of the four options, but cannot select/activate any of them

      Sorry, I mean _after_ the update. I do not have that issue before the update.

      go to menu – settings – privacy – factory reset. Not sure if this was the thing you wanted to do. I had same problem with my phone as the trackball was supposedly the thing to push to select. I did factory reset in hopes of getting flash to work. Right now flash just crashes browser. I heard was because of skip from 2.1 directly to 2.2. Hope that helped ya.

      Same thing happened to me. Had to get a replacement.

      Just installed it myself on my Fender. Seems like a real disaster so far.
      Everything is so slow. All my nice settings (email, various clocks etc.) seem to be gone.

    Got the update this morning around 12:00 am. I’ve heard of other people’s phone becoming slow, sluggish, content loading slow, and the whole nine. SAME PROBLEMS HERE! I was hoping that it wouldn’t happen to me, but sadly, my phone has also become useless. I expected some unresponsiveness at first. So I went to sleep, woke up to check on my phone 11 hours later, and it was still the same. I looked up troubleshooting which suggested I factory reset the phone. I can’t even find an option to do that! I thought upgrading something made it better not worse. It’s been 24 hours now! Shouldn’t my phone have gotten used to this update by now? I thought I shouldn’t update after reading all of the horror stories. Now I’m just frustrated!

      You need to call T-Mobile for a reset code you enter using the dial-pad. Make sure you back up everything to your google account before entering the code. T-Mobile can guide you through this.
