Hi. I know that the updates for the Motorola Milestone are to be released soon this month.
I have one and live in Argentina. I bought it to the carrier that released the phone in Argentina, Telecom Personal.
I would like to know if the updates depend on the phone carrier or if they are independent to that.
That's because I have so little trust in Personal that if I know the updates depend on them, I automatically know they'll never care to release them here; and I'd have to root my phone and update it manually if I want 2.0.1 or 2.1.
When I try to update manually from the Settings, I get this error message: "Unable to connect" "The device is unable to connect to the server. Try again later."
Does this message appear to everyone? Or is this evidence of some missing link between my carrier and the "server"? Or what?
I hope Motorola releases the update soon for everyone (I heard a rumor that they'd start today Jan 13... but no idea if that's true).
