    there are a few people that got a ota already but like with all of them there only given to a few people then to everyone eles but no one knows really when that will be...and no the phone has to have the 4g software and the d3 doesn't have it so it wont ever get 4g unless they release a updated version like they did the d2g

    yea that was a big deal breaker for a lot of people not having the 4g on here but then again its not a lot of places right now either...and the bionic will have 4g and "should" be released sep 8th

    currently we dont have 4g service here yet so that wasnt a big concern for me when i purchasing the droid 3 i would like to have a 4g phone but i cant work a virtual keyboard have to have a slide out physical keyboard so does anyone know when a 4g phone with slide out keyboard will be released the droid bionic is all touch screen unless there has been major changes made to it.

    I feel ya, a 4G slider would be my dream phone. I have the D2G because of it's physical keyboard, and i wanted to get the D3 because of the keyboard, but the phone is lacking is way too many areas to upgrade when all the new goodies are on their way soon. I really dont want a touch only phone but if i dont see one on the way in the near future I might just suffer with the Droid Prime because it going to be amazing, actually the Prime won't be so hot when my update is ready.

    The D3 doesn't have 4G hardware‚Äč. It can't be upgraded to 4G with a software update.

    I have noticed when the flash is off and im not trying to take a pic in the dark the blue tint is gone but when i turn the flash on it looks blue and makes the pics look awful they need to fix this. If anyone has the new update will you please check your camera and see if it has been fixed are if you can fix it with the new updated software? also is the shutter lag gone with the new update?

    you dont have to go into the store to get the ota... it'll just be pushed to your phone at somepoint, and you'll be prompted to download and update. You could just download the leaked ota and upgrade yourself.lol thats what pretty much everyone has done.

    Also the d3 cant be upgrade to 4g. You cant magically download hardware, the d3 is physically lacking a 4g radio.

    I have isntalled the leaked D3 update recently. When I did it, I forgot to unfreeze bloatware but update went fine. Lost root, but one click worked fine. So far the phone seems more responsive when opening apps. Its almost instant now when you click something. Phone idle and call standby are now in the 5-8% range. My ram usage has gone up just a tad now, with all bloat frozen I have just about 180-200 free ram. Camera blue tint seems to be gone but now quality is gone down a tad while using flash. Keyboard seems to not glitch out anymore, atleast for now. Web browsing almost seems alot quicker as well. (Touch zoom). All in all im happy I guess. EDIT: tried to do *288 but got an error recording.
