    I'm curious to see if it is in fact the leaked "OTA" .890 . People have reported receiving brand new phones with .890 already on them.

    I thought the soak test started weeks ago. Are you referring to the soak test or the OTA rollout to all? Also where did you get this information from?

    The information came from an email sent out by the Motorola Feedback Network stating that the soak test would start today.

    You can't. As is stated earlier in the thread, this is a soak test. It's not available for the general public yet. Won't be long though.
