    How can I tell if I have the new Droid update or not?

    When i go and look at the info about my phone the version just says 2.0

    Does it still say that after the update?

    Only reason I ask is that I havent been prompted to install it yet and a few VZ reps told me that they didnt know of any update for the Droid coming out anytime soon.

    I wasnt sure if I ended up getting the update when the VZ reps did the intial phone programming this past Tues.

    Thanks

    All updates with be pushed out by Dec 11th 23:59pm. You haven't passed the deadline for the update to be 'pushed' to your device so I wouldn't worry. There is 100% an update coming your way, it is firmware version 2.0.1

    it's ALL over the forums :)

    You will know when you get the update. It will read 2.0.1 under firmware version.

    Don't be jealous. Read the other thread about the browser sucking after the update.

    There are only a small number of people complaining of that and I thats usually with the default browser which may be the culprit.

    I for one did the manual and dont have any lag..... dolphin browser is faster and smoother than the default anyway and it has pinch zoom.

    I don't like pinch zoom and love the stock browser. It's about the only thing I can say doesn't need changing on this thing. Dolphin isn't my fav. Therefore I'm a bit concerned about updating because my browser is running smoothly right now.

    Nonsense. Don't believe everything you read the browser works great.

    thats ok... I found it faster than than trying to hit that little - .... + on the bottom.
    I guess its a preference..... I like it way more than I thought I ever would.

    well, my phone finally showed that there was an update available at 5:45am CST.

    better late than never Verizon...

    does seem a little faster, and i prefer the new lock screen
