its out


I also called TELUS support and they indicated the same thing, except for one difference. The rep I talked to said the Google has held back the release until all the bugs are fixed. Strange since it's actually been out there for quite some time via other means.


According to a telus rep I spoke with, the desire update has been delayed according to information they were given yesterday (oct 26). Whether it was simply this rep being misinformed I cannot say, they simply told me to as htc about it. However I e-mailed htc weeks ago and they said the phone companies have had the update for months. Hate getting the run around this much…please if anyone has received the update or txts about the update from telus let us know.
