    Yes, no it's on and yes

    In my local T-Mobile store they have a firmware upgrading process in store - I don't know if they do android phones or if it's just or dumbphones which hardly get updates.

    Gutted that they are only just updating to 2.1 for you when 2.3 has just been released - and SE PROMISED everyone that they would be on top of firmware updates when the device launched.

    A guy i know told me yesterday he had 2.3 on his xperia. SEUS can be a pig sometimes. make sure nothing else is using your internet connection and make sure your firewall isnt causing problems.

    Just to let the thread know, my HTC Legend updated over the air to 2.2 yesterday.

    It just popped up a message and updated...

    It is sad that some companies make it so difficult to update.. Downloading PC software ... etc... etc...

    Why 2.1, it is a year old anyway, 2.3 is de soon...

    make sure the internet is on on your phone, change your date on your phone to six months in the future.....wait 15 minutes, then chane it back to current date,, i had a popup appear asking me if i wanted to update to 2,1,

    hope this helps
