    got this in my inbox this morning. cant wait

    Thanks for your interest in providing fast feedback about the upcoming Droid 2 software update.

    Here's how it works.

    > Several thousand Droid 2 owners will receive the update. Only a percentage will be Motorola Feedback Network (MFN) members. If you sign up, your phone will be included.

    > This is what we call a "pre-launch soak." We'll watch what happens for about two days, just to make sure there is nothing wrong with the update or the update process.

    > You will be trialing FINAL software. This is not a beta test. In most cases, this is the software that will be released, unless we find an extremely serious issue. Your feedback will help us identify issues that may require a later fix, and help us prepare others for getting used to the new software. Your feedback will be extremely valuable and we do hope you will take part!

    > When you receive the update, we would appreciate your quick feedback. You will be provided a link to a private community. All of your comments and questions should be posted there, and that's where we'll provide more information.

    > We will also distribute one or more surveys to get your evaluation of the process and the software.

    If this sounds good, please confirm that you wish to take part by completing this short registration form.

    I have been waiting for this. I keep thinking about rooting, but this will be better for me. Glad I waited.

    There is no sense in accepting any OTA from VZW. There is a good possibility it won't be rooted, not to mention, most current D2 ROM's have already left 2.3 in the dust.

    Thing is, this will have problem fixers (hopefully) for you guys, and might help with your BT issue on cyanogen. Still waiting for the global ota...

    That's a good point. I really wish they'd fix the ALT Lock issue.

    Most of those are 2.3.3. And that's what the ota will be. Only liquid and cm7 are higher than that
