    I got mine a week ago and it was not updated.. the process only takes 5 mins or so, just be prepared for it.

    Setting up your gmail now is quick and easy.. also can get your contacts imported ahead of time so you have more time to play and less time to work once you get the phone.

    3. ask when you get the phone about the OS. It is over the air update so when phone turns on it will ask to be updated.
    4. have fun and be patient with it.
    also where you stationed? Im at fort hood.
    Thanks for the info,

    I'm stationed at McGuire AFB New Jersey.

    What do you guys mean by setting up your contacts in gmail?

    You mean like everyones names and numbers?

    I thought the VZW people just took your contacts from your old phone and could xfer them to your new one for you? is that not correct with the droid?

    It's just easier to import the contacts straight from google but if you have them in outlook it can be imported that way too.

    I'm not sure that VZW can pull that trick off with the Droid. Maybe they can. We will see. Anyway not to worry if they don't there are ways to do it. Since I already had gmail and it was what I had always been using it wasn't an issue.

    Verizon can take everything from your old phone and put it into your new phone, yes. But a lot of people don't include email addresses in the contacts on their old phone.

    You may also want to look through the contacts on your current phone and be sure that the mobile numbers are actually labeled as mobile numbers, or you will have trouble text messaging. A few people have asked why they can't text someone and it usually turns out that they had listed the mobile number for that individual as Home or Work, not Mobile.

    they were not able to do that trick with my droid and the vx6900. i had to manually enter 100+ contacts. then i had to edit them all again later to mobile numbers so i can send texts. lol
