Hmmm...well then...that may debunk my possible lead...thanks for ruining my theory...lol
OK, so get this. I checked for an update by using anycut to device info. Nothing popped up. I decided to manually do the the RC29 update. I wanted to see what would happen after that point. After rebooting the phone, I went back to device info. There was nothing there. However, as soon as I clicked the button to check for an update, voila, it began downloading RC30. Also, while it was still downloading RC30, I checked my baseband version and it was indeed up to 18.104.22.168.
This tells me a few things. While some have have received an update right from RC19 to RC30, if you manually update to RC29 chances are you will bring down RC30 right after that. I cannot say 100% sure that if you do the RC29 update that you will get RC30, as that could be coincidental. I don't think it is, but it is possible.
Any way for any T-Mobile Techs to look into this? It could be an Issue with the RC30 pushout where it is looking to first see if you are on the correct baseband.
