    went out on a limb here guys. i called verizon to find out possibly when this "update to gingerbread" might happen (just for giggles). i was told i needed to contact motorola. contacted motorola and was told that the droid 2 was going to remain on 2.2 software, even though verizon obviously says differently on their website. i asked if she was looking at the global and was told no. is anyone else a little confused by this? is this something that generally happens? i was also asked what state i was in so im wondering if that has anything to do with it? any clues guys? :icon_evil:

    I wouldn't believe anything VZW or Motorola representatives say about anything. They are clueless.

    I'm curious why you're so intrigued by GB. The majority of your 34 posts have been questioning GB/release/or lack thereof.

    Honestly, I think you're going to be upset.

    Just use the monster leak or one of the Gingerbread based ROMs. They're all fine.

    Monster links are bad as they bricked my phone last time I went that route.

    Have to agree w/Urbanbounca; phones today seem to have a 2yr lifespan,including software,with a few exceptions. I just recently upgraded to an Evo3D after a good 2yr run w/my OG droid(rooted). Eventually it just became outdated.
