    Obviously you didn't see that I have 18 posts on here. Check those topics on Moto blog and you'll see me all over it. same UN. And one of the ones who found a temp fix to the reboots on the moto blogs. This is my 2nd phone, The question was asking for specifics on the patch. Not looking for a "google it" reply.

    Thanks anyway rook.

    Wait, is this a pissing contest between 18 and 4 posts? :)

    Sorry, I have trouble reading sarcasm off of forums. And sorry for any unintended thread hijacking. And thanks to the D3 owners for the useful comments. I'm technically up for an upgrade ($150 I think) but I'd love to see an Amazon or Wirefly sale on the D3. Right now they're hothothot and not cheap.

    Nah, I just get irritated with new people who tell you to look elsewhere when I posted about these issues days after the phone released. On moto blog and here. I mention his post count cause I find it odd to get refereed elsewhere by a newbie..... anyway, 420 you kill it. Id hold off on D3 man. lots of bugs that are down right annoying. Lets hope this new update fixes some of this ish in a month or so...

    all love, :)

    420? Oh gee, you should see my count over at androidtablets.net. I must be sleep-posting over there!

    It's interesting that you mention the Motorola forum -- I waited a month after the D1 came out, while I carefully scoured the user experience at the Motorola site. I was AMAZED at how many angry and unhappy people there were. The bugs, as I recalled, were: proximity sensory not working, wifi problems, and muffled call quality. Owners were enraged, and Motorola support was indifferent.

    Anyway, I bought the phone, discovered this forum, and never looked back. What struck me, though, was how many more positive owners I found here. I still can't explain the difference, but it was night and day. Maybe it's just "time" -- in other words, the people complaining at Motorola were early adopters with buggy units, while those here had waited a bit longer and by then build quality had gone up. Maybe the difference is "technical savvy." I honestly don't know.

    Anyway, I'll take your words of caution pretty seriously. You're not the first owner I've seen with a D3 lemon. :(

    Back on topic with the update.....

    It's the same version as others who "by chance" got an OTA a week or so ago. I know of two (one a dev phone, one a replacement phone for a normal retail purchase)

    Screenshots of my phone before/after..

    So are you confident that there will be an update path beyond this update? Just curious cause that is the one thing holding me back. I don'tbwant to get stuck at this if there is another update coming.
