    Info given is, the rollout will start late in the afternoon, and is expected to be heavy on traffic, hopefully by tonight or early morning we should have it , knowing o2 i pray they don’t delay it again.

    Well, had a chat with o2 just now, looks like they havent a clue, and it isnt scheduled for release today according to their customer service teams.

    Go to Settings – then About Phone – System Updates <—- This process will get you the update without waiting for notification like Terry waited for above.

    Have Fun, No complaints with the Firmware As of yet.

    how many people had the 2.1 system running on the streak? cos iv had the 1.6 since i got the phone in august and theres been no updates until the 2.2 today!!

    Have been attempting this download for hours. Gets as far as 35% (the best so far out of 5) then 'waiting for data connection' & finally 'Streak download failed'. Now onto my 6th attempt – still going at 40% – that's 50mg /123. Still going… 44% & going… will post later. MJ

  11. Margaret says:

    Right… got as far as 89%/ 110mb/123mb and it's stalled again! waiting for data connection. What a pain. Can it be worth all this anguish?

  12. Graham says:

    Getting a 404 file or directory not found message when trying to download update. Any ideas?

  13. Anita says:

    The upgrade went really smoothly. I backed up my data just in case but I needn’t have worried. I went from1.6 to 2.2. The phone it’s much faster and the interface and graphics are better.I’m also loving swype and using it to write this review. The gallery is also really impressive. I am finding it harder to use my own wallpaper though so I’ll have to stick with one of the available ones for now. I’ve already made my iphone and htc friends jealous.

    absolutely 100% unimpressed. not only did i backup with a downloaded tool before using the dell backup, but i used the backup provided by dell. where the he** are my contacts?! calendar? all gone. and now, i can't sync it on my pc, so i can't just easily get them back. NOT HAPPY!!!!!
