Also, don't let them tell you that "a new one with 1.10 won't have these problems, it's only a problem if you install it yourself." A lot of people have fallen for that one.
This is only a problem with Verizon. The upgrade for Sprint is fine. There were initial problems, but that was resolved and the update is a must for the Sprint model.
