    So, at last, Motorola speaks:

    Hooray, I guess by November or December (once Ice Cream Sandwich gets released) we'll finally receive our long-awaited update!

    I'll most likely switch to a different manufacture after this. As much as I like motorolas hardware, its the software that kills it. Maybe by the time the droid 4 comes around they can figure out how to communicate with verizon and its costumers.

    I do like motorola hardware, its good stuff. my droid 2 global had a great speaker, multicolor led, and the keyboard. but the software made the phone a fail. i got tired of random reboots, and then when my touchscreen went bad and they kept sending my refurbs with different problems i was done. I got the Droid Incredible 2, the phone is great, the speaker not so much, but hey i can finally hear people clearly and they can hear me so ill take that over a loud speaker and keyboard anyday.

    Motorola updated the radio firmware on Decembers update and they ruined the gsm connectivity. So for me it was worst and I have to stay on the first stock rom.

    That sounds very weird. I was on 2.4.330 prior to trying CM7. Had zero issues, and I only use GSM.

    Well, you are probably using the d2g in Europe/Asia, but it has been reported from Canada and other places in the Americas that 2.4.330 has been a big failure in gsm reception. So instead of improving the phone, they ruined it.

    I think that says more about American GSM carriers than anything to do with the Phone...

    Oh, no, on 2.4.29 the gsm reception is better. They ruined it on 2.4.330. Maybe on gingerbread it will only work on cdma, haha. Its actually sad...

    So basically... We'll get Gingerbread, but then we will probably (well hopefully) have a port of ice cream sandwich leaving us back to where we started in reach for the next OS. LOL
