    This is NOT the official update, nor is it the FINAL BUILD. As you can see, the hardware number ends in .4, which signifies that the phone is a tester/developers phone. All retail phones hardware ends in .5. You can see that Sprint has released a statement advising against the download of DK28, and followed up by projecting the official OTA release within the next 3 weeks. Hopefully, it’ll be here before the New Years.

    Yes. My battery lasts longer now, the wifi/3g& cellular all appear to be stronger Skype works. In fact everything about it rocks except… GPS no longer works. Hoping the final OTA fixes the GPS.
