    I'm pretty sure that the updates, when pushed, come from Motorola's servers and not from Verizon's. The only thing of Verizon's that gets used is the cellular network if someone decides to download it over 3G/4G.

    It's tough to believe anything in an article that has inaccurate information as the foundation of what it presents. It's basis is the June 12 release rumor, which was incorrect to begin with. And, if the update was ready to go and a server error is all that held it back, why did a new one - with yesterday's date as the build date - pop up on Motorola's servers? Plus, the article is a few days old, claiming the servers caused the delay in May which resulted in the push being moved to June 12.

    Motorola handles the release of the soak tests from their servers, and they go out in the exact same manner that a general OTA release is pushed. Motorola uses IMEI numbers to make sure the right people get the soak test push (although a few random ones still sneak through to non-soak testers). The update push is all done on Motorola's end after Verizon approves it.

    I've been notified that I'm going to be a part of the soak test each time I've taken part in one. They definitely send out some random ones without notification though.

    Okay, silly question time. I've seen the term soak used quite often, but what exactly is it? I assume it is like beta testing? Also, how does one get chosen for this?

    Yes, it is beta testing for an update. Usually it is held within a week to a month before the update is released. Soak testing is basically sending out the update to a very small percentage of the people who are registered for it and said people will have the update and can send back information to Motorola or whoever is putting it out. To register for Motorola's soak tests, you have to go to Motorola's website, create an account there and register your phone to be available for beta testing.

    And join Motorola feedback network(MFN) by clicking on yes to participate. All info is right on the front page of the Motorola owners forum.

    As to is soak being a beta test, technically it is not as beta testing is done in house. Soak test is more of a shake down of the RC in real world conditions to see if issues pop up for installs/normal usage on devices that have varied installed apps and usage patterns. It also provides for feedback what people like or don't like. From what happens in the soak test they then decide to release or make more changes.
