    Activated phone this morning, it asked to do an update, so I did, but I don't notice anything different....so far. Under "settings" "about phone" it still says 2.0.1, so whats the story, why would they do an so close to the release of 2.1??

    This release was released in December. The 2.0.1 has been out for a while. It was released to fix some issues with general usage. Usually when updates come they come in small doses to help solve issues as they go. One big update to another doesn't usually happen in the cell industry. iPhone, Blackberry, Palm, and Droid.

    Wait...you mean you just got the phone and just activated it today?

    The phone comes stocked with the 2.0 version, and the 2.0.1 version has been available for some time now. So as soon as a new phone is activated, it will automatically update to the newest version. That's what happened with mine.

    I'm still on 2.0. It doesn't automatically update you unless you hit the "install now" tab. If you don't want it just hit the "install later" when it comes up.

    Let me clear it up a little, I've had the phone about six weeks, it came with 2.0.1, was just wondering what this mornings update was for. With 2.1 supposedly coming any day now, I thought this was it, maybe not, I guess.

    When 2.0.1 went out, some people got a "bad" version with an older Facebook app. What you got was your DROID updating to the "good" version with the correct Facebook app.

    Simply put if you received 2.1 you would see it on your about phone in your settings.

    Darn, there was a rumor goring around that the distribution on 2.1 was going to start yesterday. False alarm.:frown:
