    Stay away from Dell!!!

    I bought a Streak 2.2 Unlocked and recieved 1.6 OS. Then spent the next 3.5+hrs being transferred left and right and getting no where. No one there knows what they are doing and trying to get the right help is non-existant. Just a warning to all those looking at getting some sort of Dell phone.

    Got mine this morning, as soon as I turned it on I went to settings and did the update.
    After the initial 150meg download I installed 2.2 which it said would take up to 15 minutes but was complete in about 5.
    It restarted and now running 2.2

    Works great and looks sharp.
    Now getting use to it but love that I can watch all youtube videos on the stock browser. No limits unlike the mobile version of youtube.

    Downloaded a few games and found that Android is pretty easy to use. Kinda too simple IMHO.

    I'm sorry to hear about your bad experience. Anyway I have two friends using dell streak, they bought it from timtechs.com and they are pretty happy with it. Updating to 2.2 did not cause any problem at all.

    I bought mine in October, knowing it would come with 1.6
    After the last 4 years with various windows phones, this one is light years ahead. No tweaking out of the box.
    No hacking apps to get the performance up to where it was usable. 1.6 works fine, and I can wait til the 2.2 update
    hits.

    You went into check for updates in the settings menu and no updates were available? I'd be upset if it's not there and you paid extra money. I have a feeling that even the AT&T locked devices will have a 2.2 update within a week or so.

    Funny I was fantasizing about getting one from timtechs too which is factory unlocked but I was worried about updating to 2.2, but I have read on their site today that the official 2.2 update will be released sometime in January so I might reconsider

    if you are on baseband 31 you will not be able to update. if you want to update then goto streakdroid and follow the guides for qdl. repair tool. you will be running baseband 00 and 2.2. not liking the stage so i will most likly rip that off and run adw. outside of that all manuf does stupid things like this. be it dell or anyone else. i had issues with htc imate nokia moto.good luck on finding a phone manuf that gives everyone everything they want
    affect change and churn baby churn
