    I have a hypothesis, with nothing to back it up really, that the reason they wait until "off-peak" hours to release these updates is just to avoid clogging the Sprint network. So, since it is still peak hours (and daylight) here in the Bay Area, I think it might be a bit later before they release it. And if they do pay to lease servers to push these updates, it's probably cheaper to do it later and on weekends, at least for that initial rush of downloaders? Again, just a guess from a non-tech guy.

    You are comparing Palm to Verizon and what they are doing. Does Verizon announce dates and then not meet them? Does someone speculate and post rumors that they don't meet? Palm only said the update would occur in Feb, and this is still possible.

    is this really for anything? Is there ACTUALLY this "notification" that will appear and tell us the update is ready?
    ROTFLMAO

    Best post I've seen all day.

Those calls are recorded and reviewed and they can get in trouble for divulging information that they weren't supposed to. If you're going to kill yourself because there's no update tonight, I will personally tie a noose for you. That's how sick I am of f*&ing idiots on this forum. Pre still works as a phone without the update and it's Friday night. Use Pre to call your friends and go have fun.
    isnt this like going to the bar and complaining that there are drunk people there?

    It's obvious why the U.S. updates haven't been rolled out yet - they're still buying more servers to handle the load.

    8:20 PM George: I understand that you want to know the release of update 1.4. Am I correct?
    8:20 PM Christina White: Yes
    8:21 PM George: I would like to inform you that we in chat support do not have any information regarding the future updates or releases.
    8:21 PM Christina White: Oo
    8:21 PM George: once there is an update you can have the update over the air on the phone under the updates application
    8:21 PM Christina White: It's supposed to release today.....
    8:22 PM George: I am sorry. We do have the information regarding that only once it is released. We cannot provide any information untill and unless the update is released.
    8:22 PM George: I think you can understand.
    8:23 PM Christina White: Ok, but Pre users in Europe and Asia already have 4.1 on thier phones. They're posting videos on YouTube. How can it be a future release when it's already released in some areas?
    8:24 PM George: The update varies from regions. It depends on the carriers on the phones.
    8:24 PM George: Just for confirmation are you from USA?
    8:24 PM Christina White: Yes.
    8:25 PM Christina White: Do I need to contact Sprint?
    8:25 PM George: Not necessary. As of now there isn't any update released for US customers. You can keep checking on the updates application on the phone
    8:25 PM Christina White: Thank you.
    8:25 PM George: You’re welcome. Is there anything else I can help you with?
    8:25 PM Christina White: No, thank you.
    Now I may get ****ed. I took a nap and I missed three full OS versions?

    you see it's stories like this that make me wonder, why did a man in a far away communist country such as Vietnam get the update first. His video of palm trees and happy children....and nice weather. While I sit in a Mcdonalds parkinglot barrowing their free wifi as homeless people ask for change and gangsters stare me down. One question....is this truly fair?

    This whole thread reminds me of the Kyocera 7130 release thread, then the Treo 600 thread, then the Treo 650 thread, then the Treo 700 thread, then the Centro thread, oh... and remember back almost a year ago - the Palm Pre thread? I am sure there have been similar threads for almost every popular smart phone. Even the iPhone has pushed back the release of major updates and even the phone itself.
    This is all normal. I think it's funny how soon we forget the pain of waiting.
    Just so you know, as soon as 1.4 comes out you can expect a long list of complaints. In fact there will be a 1.4 complaints thread and it will look just like the complaint threads for every one of the devices previously mentioned.
    This is nothing new.
