    Tonight seems to be the night for the Droid Pro and Droid 2 Global family to move up in the world. Motorola/Verizon are reportedly pushing the much-anticipated Android 2.3 update to these two devices as we speak. The update should not only bring your phone to the latest released version of Android, but also fix some issues you might, or might not, be experiencing.

    Here is the change log for the Droid 2:


    • Improvements in stability prevent lockups, resets and force
    • close errors.
    • Bluetooth devices will now select the correct audio recording level for optimal voice capture and alert you when your audio level is too low.
    • Improved battery life while using Bluetooth.
    • Access My Verizon without any force close errors.
    • Reset Backup Assistant under Manage Applications menu.
    • Enhanced connectivity when roaming in GSM/UMTS networks
    • (Europe and India).
    • Improved battery life during Wifi use.

    • Google Books added
    • Accuweather added
    • Amazon MP3 Store added
    • Blockbuster added
    • Adobe Flash Player 10.2 added
    Now here is what you Droid Pro users should see coming your way soon:


    • Improved contact syncing from multiple email accounts.
    • Improved battery life while using Wifi and/or Bluetooth.

    • Forward SMS message conversations correctly.
    • Mobile Hotspot status is displayed accurately.
    • Clock widget updates time correctly.
    • GPS apps and programs no longer cause unnecessary device resets.

    This made me laugh, it still reboots and freezes like crazy. Thankfully not as bad as froyo did though.

    Been having issues with keyboard and soft key backlighting. Hopefully since Google took over we can get an AOSP ICS on this POS!

    I assume that it happened after because I have only recently been getting annoyed with it... could be that it was before the install but I would guess it is after. Ill start a thread over in the D2G section and we can see if we can get help. I dont know what there would be to help with. We are probably both stock and to change anything (fix) we would prob have to root to get control over the culprit.

    EDIT: There exists a thread already http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-2-global/178802-keyboard-lights.html
