    If we upgraded to Gingerbread using the LG Updater, will we still get an upgrade from T-Mobile?  Also, will the Android Market be updated to the new version?  Mine is still 2.3.6.  Thanks.

    The update was good however, it took out the original camera features and replaced it with the stock camera
