    If something were to break on a server while the servers are in "lock down" the potential losses for the company over even just a short period of time can be immense. This is why I would think the update needs to roll tonight. They do not want to worry about the servers having any down time.
    Sorry man, but this just sounds like a pile of BS.

    Why would the servers require frequent "hardware changes" anyway. This feels like an episode of CSI or something where the characters are trying to use technical jargon that was obviously way too advanced for the writer of the show.

    kc...

    I hope you're right about the update. Not because I need it tonight or tomorrow but if midnight comes and goes without the update, there will be a lot of scorn your way on this forum.

    Actually, doing a push dosent involve major hardware changes, more or less its about resourcing. Each tower is only capable of so much bandwidth.

    I honestly dont think the update will hit tonight due to the fact that its a Friday Night and this is such a major update. Most stores prep for sales on weekends, not service calls. Anytime there is a major update call centers get staffed, and usually its done on a Monday because of support and operations.

    Wonder why the last major pre updates have been on mondays? theres a reason.

    Sorry for too much jargon. And things don't always break. But you need to anticipate things going down. Sprint always does major server upgrades like at 2 in the morning on the weekends so if something doesn't work it doesn't interrupt service and billing.

    And I wish I could explain better but I can't. I am a fireman. Not a computer guru.

    I think they are having a problem separating the updates between the cdma pre, pixi and plus.
