    It's not out yet. The website says
    "Coming Soon".

    Why yes; that is a Thunderbolt in my pocket.

    It'll start getting pushed out in the next day or two. Patience is a virtue...that I don't have.

    That's just been their typical timing once they put it on their website as "coming soon". Nothing more than past history which may or may not be accurate.

    My question is what about the people like me who downloaded the 1st gingerbread update before it was pulled? I assume I'll be able to download it as well.

    My understanding is that you will be able to download it since it has a different build number. If for some reason you can't, I'm sure the very knowledgable and helpful folks at Verizon can get it on you phone. Everyone deserves to have it since it fixes problems that are still there following the first release and actually created new problems as well.

    Just noticed it was rebooting, then saw it was because of the update. I just got the last update, so everyone that did should get this. Hopefully this fixes everything until ICS. Sent from my ADR6400L using DroidForums

    "Service unavailable" just means that they haven't pushed it to your phone yet. They will. I got the first GB update a few weeks ago and just got the new version a few minutes ago. It downloaded in about one second. The full update will take much longer to download. It was so fast that I thought the phone had stopped it, but the build number is the new one so it came through. We'll see if the problems are fixed and if they created any new ones.

    The new one won't replace the old one, but contains "fixes" for the bugs...supposedly. That's why it downloads so fast.

    Will it fix the dropped data connection I've been hearing about?
