    Crap! They might wait until January?! That will not make people happy. I mean ICS would be great, but so would reliable data.

    I agree with the issue of waiting but I was happy to hear that we would not be left out to dry for those of us who applied the leaked OTA.

    i'm skeptical about Moto supporting an update (via OTA) from 5.7.893, obviously they will have a mechanism to get their testers updated but that doesn't necessarily mean it will be generally available, time will tell...

    At this point I'm skeptical there is even an update. I'm so disappointed in Moto over this BS. They are losing loyal followers daily and don't seem to care now that they released the Razr.

    So, a crappy day here. Canceled flights and that equals a canceled trip. Then a tete'-a-tete' with VZW CS service to get my wife a new phone.

    I'm royally pissed at them now and the world in general and so I thought WTF!!?? Anyway to get back at them for the Bionic mess, I applied the 5.8.894 OTA that has been floating around to my totally stock Bionic. Take that VZW and Moto! I'll follow up in a few days to let you know what works and what doesn't. Right now, the camera is much quicker.

    Camera is only difference I've seen on 8.894 over the past couple of days... data is no different, though mine hasn't been bad lately in general. Interestingly the camera, once you get a focus, doesn't even think about trying to refocus unless you move much. So the first shot takes a second b/c of the initial focus, but after that it's really really fast. Quality is no better, but at least it's focusing better so the pictures aren't blurred.
