I initially tried to download the update but got the same memory BS as well as no update when I cleaned things up. I stopped in to a Verizon kiosk and the guy advised me NOT to attempt to download gingerbread because it will trash the phone. He has the same phone and refuses to upgrade the software. After reading all the trouble everyone is having, I simply hit "install later" whenever the message pops up. And I have no problems. Sounds like the update will turn this phone into a POS. Might make sense to wait till all the dust settles to see if they truly have a future fix at a later date.
