    Got a new Droid X about 5 weeks ago. And everytime I use the Check for Updates under "About Phone" I get a response that the "Update Is Currently Unavailable". Is Verizon only doing a limited number of upgrades a day? Its been 5 days since the upgrade was available. Any ideal when I willl be able to get the upgrade?dancedroid

    AFFIK they are not limiting the number of users updating, you should be able to check and upgrade at anytime... I would take it to a corp store.

    Somewhere in this forum there is something that you can do to force the update. I'm searching.

    Update...

    Update is being "pushed" by Motorola in batches of 10,000, based on ESN. Could take one or two weeks to reach everybody. However, anyone should be able to "pull" the update, as long as you have 3G reception.

    The weirdest thing I've heard was uninstall your Facebook account to make the install work. It's worth a try.

    Try a factory reset? Clear the cache? Battery Pull?

    Worth a shot

    I had the same problem. Here's what fixed it..

    go to settings/data manager/data delivery/social applications

    Once there uncheck Sync over wiFi only.

    Worked for me.

    ^ basically, a factory reset. that article is pure speculation. checking the box isnt what fixed it, doing the reset did lol.

    Unless I missed something in the article other then a user guessing that checking the box then restoring fixed it.

    And the fact that her recommends not using LauncherPro because it has "issues" is just iceing on the cake. LauncherPro works flawless for me and I assume most other users. Dont jump on bandwagons just because they're rolling.

    Read it all - Bingo! I finally figured out how to get things straight in my Droid X 2.2 update - Android Forums

    Why don't you let the OP decide what works best for his situation. There's no need to get your panties in a bunch, you sound like a little girl... Lol.

    Because the blind leading the blind is why people ask the same questions over and over. Did I miss the part where I whined, your the one who sounds like a girl defending bad advice from someone who doesnt understand the phone they own.

    I feel sorry for you, maybe you should read it again. All their doing is disabling the app restore feature built into froyo. It doesnt restore app settings, it just restores the app itself. It in no way impacts performance other then the first boot which it uses to restore the apps. After that, the phone runs normal. Wait 20 minutes after you do a restore and let the phone load the apps, then its back to normal. Everyone saying its "faster" and "better" of course it seems faster. Its bare stock and not restoring apps...

    ffs.

    Jesus Christ you idiot, I'm just trying to help out the OP, you want to get personal and turn it into a little pissing contest. You're letting the internet control your emotions, like a little girl. Go outside get some fresh air, read a book, piss off, whatever.
