After G2X, T-Mobile has started rolling out Android 2.3 Gingerbread updates for another device – T-Mobile G2. The OTA (over-the-air) update will last for few weeks so don’t panic if you don’t get it today or tomorrow – it will eventually reach everyone. As a matter of fact, T-Mobile underlines you shouldn’t call them before September 1st about the update, because the timeline for receiving the OTA update cannot be expedited and they can’t manually push the software to customers who ask to receive it.
The new version of the software brings several improvements to the original software, including Wi-Fi calling (SIP-based VoIP), new SMS and email notification, and improvements to sending MMS from the Gallery. There are also new features included with the Gingerbread (better Copy/Paste), as well as T-Mobile G2 specific updates like:
- Tell HTC app
- Google Books added
- Notification bar color scheme is changed to black
- New battery indicator, phone and web icons
- Color-coded network icon and signal indicator added: green when connected to Google servers, grey when not connected.
- Pressing the power key while on a call disables the proximity sensor
To check out whether there’s new software available for your T-Mobile G2, go to “Settings,” “About Phone” and then “System updates.”
