    I tried doing a search before posting this question but I could not find anything that seemed relevant.

    Here a lot of people have Froyo but I am not sure how to get it.

    Thanks

    Interesting question. You basically do the same things you would do to get rooted. Even though you don't end up with root access on your phone you'd still be voiding your warranty.

    The sticky thread in this forum? It talks about apps, I did not see where it discusses installing Froyo.

    So it is not being offered by Verizon yet?

    Still debating if I want to root my phone or not.

    No. Try reading the stickies in the Hacks section I think you'll learn a lot from them
