Anybody install the OTA Gingerbread update yet?

Yesterday, I received a notice from Sprint on my phone that a new update was available for installation.

But when I went to "Update Android" in "About Phone", it says my device is up-to-date (with Froyo).

Has anyone installed the OTA GB update yet?

I just installed GB this morning and I haven't seen a difference in battery life, yet anyway.

Re: Anybody install the OTA Gingerbread update yet?

Same here. Installed, however, Battery is lasting longer than my old version. Plus the "Android" engine is what is sucking battery life, not the display....

I didn't know just what No CIQ was all about. Thanks. It came on the EI22 rom I flashed. My battery life is MUCH better now than with my previous GB-leak rom. I can go 2 days on a charge where before I was lucky to get 8 hours.

I take it there is no way to remove CiQ from the standard Gingerbread update?
