    This looks like a first. I have not previously seen a carrier release higher than a beta. Great stuff.

    Who needs a beta OS forum when you have an 8900 - lol.

    Haha, me too!

    I jokingly told the wife that I was excited last night because there's a leaked OS for the 8900. She rolled her eyes and said "what happened to our marriage". Funny.

    Ok, i'm out of here to go home and get straight on the laptop!

    newbie here,

    i started up the app loader before the liks for download were posted

    now the app loader is updating

    meanwhile this thread was initiated,

    started the download here as well

    stuck now as the app loader is updating simultaneously with the download,

    Q1: is it all right if i unplug my phone while the app loader is updating?

    Q2: what the **** is is the app loader updating? is it downloading the latest os as well?

    sorry if the questions sound dumb

    just don't wanna mess things up

    thanks
