Beginning January 31, original myTouch 3G devices (no headphone jack) on Android 2.2 (Froyo) / Software FRG83 or FRG83D will receive a software update to version FRK76C. This update is to apply the Google security fix. It will continue until March 1.
This update will not apply to:
- Original myTouch 3G on Android 1.5 or 1.6

Note: Google no longer supports sending Android 2.2.1 (Froyo) / Software FRG83 Over-the-Air (OTA) updates to legacy T-Mobile myTouch 3G devices. The devices have exceeded Google's support period.
If you have a T-Mobile myTouch 3G and would like a newer software version, please consider a handset upgrade to a newer and faster device.
Important: The timeline for receiving the update cannot be expedited. T-Mobile cannot manually push the software update on request.
