    Verizon takes longer to put out updates than other carriers. So it could be awhile.

    I just updated over the 3g network. It took almost an hour. I then did a battery pull and restarted it. The tract pad seems to wirk better and my emails get to the phone a little faster. What else is this new software supposed to fix?

    Here's the actual update list from the change log.

    Enhancements:
    1. Improved Wi-Fi accessibility
    − Wi-Fi is available in the Options menu, and Wi-Fi options can be
    accessed from the Manage Connections menu.
    2. Better text-message organization
    − Sending a text message and a voice mail to the same recipient
    won’t affect the recipient’s ability to respond to the text message.
    3. Improved picture/video message playback
    − Picture and video playback has been enhanced.
    4. Enhanced Japanese language functionality
    − The text-messaging application has improved translation
    capabilities. And the voice-activated dialing application
    recognizes more Japanese voice prompts.
    5. Improved text messaging
    − Sending a text message while outside of wireless coverage will
    prompt a “Pending” screen message. And text-message threads
    are immediately readable upon receipt.
    6. Improved voice-mail notifications
    − Receive voice-mail notifications while using other applications
    such as text messaging.
    7. Enhanced video camera application
    − While using the video camera, pressing the Menu key will display
    all the available camera options.
    8. Enhanced audio recording
    − Start and stop audio recordings at any time throughout the
    recording process without affecting the audio.
    9. Better media player
    − Clicking the progress bar will allow you to slide to whatever part of
    the song you want.
