    so as I said earlier they did not say which 1000 it would be, but that an update would be sent out to 1000 phones.

    This is kinda directed at CK.... I spoke to my local Verizon Wireless store and the rep read me the email she received last night. Making it official that the stores know about it(the update and times/quantities), and are telling customers this information. It's now official news.

    With that being said, Moto jumped the gun telling the world about the update first, when to be honest, wasn't their call in the first place. Unless Verizon said it, no one should be getting mad at all.

    Oh no a bug with deployment delayed an update! Would you rather have 1 or 2 more days with your "crappy" Droid, or get a bugged update now and deal with a possibly bricked phone? 2.0.1 works amazingly for an open source, multi platform operating system. Yeah it doesn't do EVERYTHING, but it's keeping me happy.

    I'm a little disappointed at VZW because they weren't able to deliver, but **** happens.

    No, the Motorola brick phone. Good old analog phone. I think I still have mine, somewhere.

    I just talked to a Verizon "hub" store rep. The lady (though seemingly clueless) stated: "Oh yeah, the update went out today. You might not get it today because it only went to a thousand people so far.... I have had a few phone calls about it today already.

    I was not convinced by her that the update went out.

    I've read so many rumors today it blows my mind how people can twist statements into whatever they feel liike at the moment. VZW posts instructions on their support pages and someone reads that to say VZW has the entire update for download on their site. Then another person claims VZW lied because the update has been canceled. Third guys says that VZW posted instructions on how to cancel the update on his own website.

    Man you people make a lot of leaps.

    What I can discern from all the chatter...I think based on "facts" after trying desperately to filter out the useless chatter....

    VZW may have sent out 1,000 updates. One person so far has posted that he got the update and likes it. 1000 Phones were chosen at random. Someone in some forum mentioned it would probably go out to west coast. Also a very specific list of area codes used to identify regioons was selected (all of which are west coast/mountain desert regions). Now VZW is waiting for feedback. If all goes well, at 9 pm (PST?)tonight they roll out another 1,000 updates.

    If this whole process of testing works out nicely, we may see updates Saturday afternoon. Most phones will be updated by Monday.

    Boygenius posted a report that the update was stalled, but he says nothing more and from there the rumors go wild. Maybe the stall was planned at #1,001. No information out there right now that says otherwise. Just a bunch of technojunkies (I'm one too) acting like crack addicts wanting that next fix. It really does crack me up.

    Wow. 40 pages of people claiming they didn't care that the update was coming out because they've already rooted and are running cooked ROMs, and then 50 more of people complaining when the update didn't come out.

    I throw $20 in to the wind that says it was the same bunch of people (but I have no intention of checking).

    Okay, seriously ya'll need to chill out a little about the patch.

    I know it contains some feature sets that you want to have, as do I, but your phone operates without it, and in most cases just fine. Are you so desperate to be bleeding edge that those of you, who will benefit (read = unrooted) are willing to take the risk of having some sort of bug in the code? Chances are if you are unrooted (some, not all) then you are already not as willing to have buggy software as others. Thats a blanket statement, but I venture a guess to say more accurate than not...?

    So, what do you have to gain - buggy code for a few minor fixes and otherwise new toys? Relax - when its ready, its ready. It sucks that they announced it, officially or not and now possibly not coming out. But, seriously? "Im going back to my XYZ" - are you kidding me? Over an update/patch?

    This is a great group of folks, but the mania surrounding the 'delayed release' and some of the reactions is silly.

    With that - I want my damn patch!
