    I think they may do it just to see the responses they get on the Internet haha.

    @mark: maybe it just took some time to get discovered

    I just hope the D2 gets Gingerbread. D2 hasn't had a single system update since the 2.3.20 update in November. It seems like the D2 is treated as the redheaded step child of the Droid family, with the D2G getting all the love.

    Lol it was a sticky on the D2 general section for like 5 days.

    @silverfang, it was october 28th. I asked the forum owner (matt, forum manager) on the motorola owners forums when we'd be getting another update, he gave me a typical response. "I can't give an estimated arrival date"

    Well don't forget that the first Droid 2 model is now not even sold by VZW. It's just Droid 2 Global. If you're lucky you MIGHT find a R2 Droid 2 left but not too many are still in stores.

    I have the OG D2 and I had to get a replacement cause it was free and I didn't want to replace the digitizer myself. VZW assured me that I would be able to keep getting a replacement anytime I needed one but I'm not sure how long this is gonna hold true. I'm glad i was able to get the OG D2

    I know they're not being sold anymore. My issue is that if I'm going to be required to keep a single phone for two years, Google/Motorola needs to send periodic firmware updates (Gingerbread!).

    We will be getting at least gingerbread. I would be willing to wager quite a bit on that. It will just take time.

    Silverfang 77, I couldn't agree with you more, but unfortunately there is nothing in writing that I am aware of, that states that either Verizon or Motorola, has to provide any upgrades. I maybe wrong, and I have been in the past, and so if I am, I apologize.

    Even if there isn't anything that stipulates that they must, it's what they should do at the very least since they require us to keep our phones for so long. I hope they would at least be willing to do that much.
