    OK. Just talked with verizon rep (while i was taking care of another issue with another phone), I asked about the update and was tranferred to "the highest tier" of tech support. I was told that the original date that verizon/google had agreed on was the 18th of January but it had to be pushed back due to a "global" computer issue that had to be taken care of before it was beamed to vzw customers that owned android phones. He also said that some android owners will see the updates start late tonight and all phones should be updated by January 29th. The plan is 200,000 users the first day and then the rest scattered throughout the weekend and the next week.

    Yeah, its called a bunch of made up crap, to get an annoying customer off the phone.

    Epic fail.

    Not buying it one bit. Verizon techs will know as soon as we do, when it gets here.

    I'm very cynical about anything that comes out of the mouth of Verizon tech support. The pattern of distribution sounds about right but I still have to say I'll believe it when I see it.

    Speak for yourself. I would have been shocked if we saw 2.1 today. I've found this hoopla to be quite entertaining ;)

    Just saw this from moto Twitter:

    "Guys, we're sorry; we know you are excited about 2.1 updates to your Moto Android-based products, but we can't comment on official timing."

    "We promise to update you as soon as we can!"

    That's the latest from Moto Twitter so... looks like the wait is still on!

    I'm pretty sure Miami mentioned a few days ago about them stopping OTAs due to a computer issue.

    Agreed! I finally got most of the bugs worked around in this release. I don't want a new batch of them. I just want flash support.
