T-Mobile G2

Remember how about a month ago a few people reported their G2s had been updated for Wifi calling? And remember how T-Mobile said there was no such update? Well, now there is. It's official folks, the update is under way, and here's what you'll get:

  • Wi-Fi Calling for Android
  • Resolves device freeze and unexpected power-off issues
  • Improves data connection reliability
  • Optimizes radio recovery

Of course, it doesn't address the one we thing we know you want it to -- the whole rooting situation. We'll just have to keep waiting and hoping on that one. [T-Mobile]

I can't wait for this to come get on my phone. Wi-fi calling will really help since I can only get great reception in the upper levels of my house. The other fixes are good too.

is this WiFi calling coming to the vibrant too?

I'm not sure why anyone was expecting an OTA to make this phone easier to root. I hear the myTouch 4G does the same thing with its read-only parts.

Adding wifi calling and addressing the connection problems are huge improvements. Harshing on the rootability of the phone just sounds like sour grapes, Phil. You want a pony?

Well the wifi calling , usb tethering and wifi tethering works great for me. Very very happy with this update. I am loving it so far.

Just received my update this morning. Will t-mobile begin to charge for the wireless tethering after the first use or do you have to add it on to your bill?

I'm so jealous of everyone that has already received the update, the last ota update I got was 1.6 on my g1!
