Android 2.3.3 Update Breaking Google Voice On Nexus One

So far, I have not received the over-the-air update to Android 2.3.3 for Nexus One or Nexus S phones. While I could manually update the phones, I’ve been waiting to see the standard update process. If I do manually install the update on my Nexus One, I might experience a problem with losing the ability to run Google Voice, as many have reported.

Several users on Google’s support forum are reporting that after manually installing Android 2.3.3 on their Nexus One, they cannot access Google Voice. The problem is made worse by the fact that like many of Google’s Android apps, Google Voice cannot be uninstalled from the phone to thus force a new installation on the phone. Fortunately, several users have found that if they install an old version of Google Voice, and then access the Android Market, the they latest version of it installs and then works properly. The forum thread contains a few links to copies of applacation packages to manually install the old version.
