Don’t misunderstand my rant here folks. There has been an overwhelming amount of support from a lot of dedicated Droid users spending a great amount of their personal time assisting those of us who are jumping in over our heads and trying to manually update our Droid 1 to the 2.2 os. To all of you, I tip my hat in thanks. You are our Hero’s. Unfortunately, I am well aware of my skills and realize any effort to do a manual could be fatal to my phone so, just like so many other Droid 1 owners, I have patiently been waiting for the OTA. Today the 18th still nothing. I will continue to resist doing a manual update.
I have checked with the Verizon store I bought my D1 from (November 9, 2009) to see if they could help by performing a manual for me. No can do! I asked if they could provide me an accurate time frame for distribution to be completed. No can do. I’ve read in this forum many different responses to the same questions from various “Official” Verizon representatives. All Verizon outlets and personnel should be ON THE SAME PAGE with what is going on. We should all be hearing the same information.
If Verizon had been doing their job correctly, you and I would have been provided reliable information weeks (Months) ago, along with regular updates. Had Verizon been on top of this mess, many of the problems and issues we’re all working through with the upgrade would have been eliminated. Our Hero's could finally get a good nights sleep. The handling of this entire process by Verizon makes me feel embarrassed for them. It also brings into question how they will address future updates with other phones.
I have been a Verizon customer in good standing for many years. Android is a good platform and I am satisfied with my D1. But, I strongly encourage Verizon (Google) to step up and show some respect to their customers.
