    New notification tones and ring tones
    close out background apps with a tab or x in right hand corner
    driving mode (I do not have a blue tooth device so I cannot comment)
    double tap the screen to wake ( it says will reduce battery life so I will need to monitor)

    Thats about it so far, but nice and I like it :)

    yes, it did for me also. I think about 15 mins to check for the update and then about another 15 to apply it

    The new app switcher is nice too. Hold the back button to check it out.

    Go to settings and try forcing an update.
    Maybe it will show up.

    I don't see Metro listed here: Availability in North America - Nokia

    Go to settings in the app menu (small gear looking app)
    Scroll to phone update-tap
    Tap on check for update
    Wait for 2-5 minutes
    You'll either see:
    Phone is up to date or it will start downloading
    Before doing so be sure you are fully charged and on wifi.

    Good luck

    When you reboot your phone does the start logo say "MetroPCS?"
    If it does your phone is on Metro's firmware and most likely won't be updated until Metro decides to push an update.

    Metro might have settings or branded apps that wouldn't be compatible with T-Mobiles update.
    Looks like Metro is still a separate company away from T-Mo.

    Chin-up and keep checking the phone update or call Metro at 611 and ask about the latest update status.
    Hard to say ... black could show up tomorrow.

    Hmmm, no one had problems? Mine has been stuck on the updating gears for over an hour. I tried resetting with the power button but it's disabled. After an hour I pulled the battery and rebooted that way, but after the tmobile logo it went back to the gears and it's still there 20 minutes later.

    It may take a while, took mine almost a hour to do everything yesterday. Are the gears spinning ?

    They are still spinning. I'll walk away for another hour and see what happens.

    Update: a few hours later and the phone kept trying to update until it died. I plugged it back in and it went right back to updating. It seems like my phone is ruined since it won't do anything except keep rebooting into the update which never finishes.
