why isn't there an OTA patch released yet?
This is a serious question. I doubt (ok, I hope not that) Moto is using the "let's see what people post on Droidforums about the leaked patches" method of testing for the issues. Software testing is a very methodical and predictable procedure. Letting the general public customers "try this" method is absolutely one of the worst ways to go about it. It's hit or miss... and totally depends on the customer deliberately making the software go through the suspected paths that generate the problems. If the "tester" doesn't put it through all it's paces, exercising each part of the code, and then reports the phone is working great, what has been accomplished? No, the Motorola engineers have to be smarter than that.
The fact that there's still no OTA patch released tells me that Moto hasn't fixed all the bugs that are on the "punch list" they disclosed over a month ago, in particular the data dropout issue. All it takes is one person to apply the patch and say they still have the data dropout issue, to tell me it didn't fix the problem, no matter how many say their phone works great now.
The lack of an OTA fix only reinforces that things still aren't right with the Bionic firmware.
