    My Bionic is currently un-rooted at this time.

    I think I remember reading that the date for the OTA upadate was either 11-3 or 11-5. Is this correct and is this just what most believe or has it been confirmed by Moto/Verizon. I know that even when it comes out that it will be released to geographical area a little at a time, I'm just questioning when it will start.

    Even so, keep in mind that it will be RANDOM even to the point that if you bought 2 Bionics the same day, one might get the update weeks after the other one did.

    Well we have massive quantities left, we bought $40 worth of candy (buy one get one so only cost $20) and we had about 15 kids last night, good thing we only buy candy we like also.

    New Update
    I know everyone is eager for updated software. We have been working diligently on a software update for DROID BIONIC and have a version in the testing stage; we expect to deliver it to users in 30 to 60 days. The update is targeting issues identified through owner feedback and we’re confident it will improve device performance.

    Just FYI I just got off the phone with a Motorola rep who advised the update should be here in a "couple of weeks." As usual, nobody seems to know a specific date... Where's the Bionic project manager when you need him/her?!?!?!?

    I sure hope its sooner than later, keeping us in the dark with a date is getting old . I for one will not get jerked along for long, I will just sell it and grab a more stable phone and I assume Im not alone.

    Disappointing. I had been waiting to see if the update fixed the data loss and camera issues. However, it's going to be as many as 60 days, than I suspect I'll wait to see if the RAZR has any glaring issues. If not, I think that's the way to go.

    If this is what I end up having to do I will not be supporting Moto by getting the RAZR.

    I am SHOCKED! The update is not coming when the mods super secrete source's cousins girlfriend said it would. Should I return the phone or wait for aliens to insert a comunication probe in my brain?

    Pretty sure Matt misinterpreted something he heard around the office.
    The update is expected within the next 2 weeks.. unless some major bug is discovered we should see the soak test begin within 10 days from what I've been told.

    Has anyone ever owned a "quality" phone made by Motorola? Every one that I ever owned going all the way back to the Razer had to be replaced at least once.

    My V3 was awesome, even tho I had to put up with TMo... my V3M was great. My Q9c was good, but a bit of a letdown just because of what I was hoping for out of a smartphone. My OG Droid was a tank. My DX was probably the best of them all until the GB update forced me to get a replacement and my Bionic is excellent.
