    If it comes out then yes, a message will be sent to your phone from Verizon. At this point, definitely not holding my breath.

    and... nothing..

    Okay, so it's 8:18am on the East Coast, and there are no reports anywhere of anyone actually getting the OTA today. No official word from Verizon. Nothing.

    SO allow me to rant about this rumor.
    Mashable. What exactly are their credentials? Seriously, it seems that ALL the other sites "reporting" the 18th were merely quoting from this one article. The same folks who keep reporting that a Verizon iPhone is coming any second now. I think their credibility is zilch on these leaks. I'd rather a tweet from a vzw rep than some lame website that nobody has ever heard of.

    No reason to get upset , VZW never said there would be a 2.2 update today.
    It has been a rumor from the start.

    I know. My problem is how so many other sources ran with it as gospel, thus giving it more buzz than it deserved.
    Perhaps I should remove the angry emoticon, but my rant still stands.

    I see this happen all the time w/ several tech news sites that are based on similarities. If one site has news that guarantees much interest within the time other sites will report it. You can't deny that ppl would be interested if the Droid Incredible would get rumored Froyo on a specific time so of course it would get much buzz.

    People start rumors all the time , it increases hits on there websites. A lot of guys never heard of some of these sites before froyo on Aug. 13/18th started.
    The more hits on a website the more chances to sell advertising.

    yep...
    Well, I am really happy with my Incredible as-is. And I'm hoping that the delays are to really get any bugs out.
    I think part of the frustration is that there have been these leaks around for weeks now, and now even the source has been released. But as a programmer, I can appreciate how long it takes to really, really QA new stuff.

    That's right. VZW has to add their bloatware , etc. and then everything has to be re-done to their specs and tested again and again. That's their system , always has been. I agree with you , my phone is fine now, the best one I ever owned, so I can wait till vzw pushes out 2.2 and then look forward to Gingerbread rumors driving everyone crazy. LOL :)
