My phone is running 2.2 and Netflix is still not working...not sure if the update has anything to do with it. Cant find netflix in the market place either. Seems like netflix has some work to do.

Has nothing to do with Sprint. Has everything to do with Netflix. Blaming Sprint for Netflix's ineptitude is a bit like complaining to the plumber because your water heater doesn't work when the electricity's out.

yup, wish they gave me a heads-up on the Netflix glich. It was working great before I upgraded. Hope they pick the ball up on this one soon.

To the people blaming Sprint for this issue. Sprint did not develop the software update for Android nor did they release the Netflix software that could not accept Android 2.3. Both Google and Netflix are aware of the issue and are working on the resolution. The only thing that Sprint has in this issue is the phone and the decision to release the software update, which they were told by Google was fully functional. Take 2 minutes and research your issue before flaming someone.

sure enough... 2.3.3 breaks Netflix.. Not a big deal at the moment. Called Netflix and they said they didn't know about it... 1st level support people though. Hope they fix this.
