    Do not do the upgrade yet.  I did it last week and my phone reboots in the middle of calls and gives me "force close" messages in the middle of apps.  I haven't figured out the pattern yet.  It may be a particular app that is misbehaving.  Either way, give HTC a month or so before you upgrade to get all the kinks out.  Everytime it gives me the force close, I send them the error details so they can work through their issues.  It is good that you asked.

    The same thing happened to me last week and I had the same version you have now. I accepted the update and I now have Gingerbread. Plug your phone into the recharger first. It will take a while (15 minutes to a half hour) and will require restarts. It's a 2 stage process - first the OTA and then the full update. I think it's worth it and my phone works fine. My husband's phnone (also MyTouch 4G)) got the update last month and it's been fine. It's the same upgrade they've been rolling out for a while.
