There is some conflict over what a soak test is. Some say it's a test of the OS, but many say it's merely to test the delivery of the OS. Considering that a soak test doesn't really last long enough to get any real feedback on an OS build, my personal opinion is the test is for the latter.

Also when 905 happened and quite a few got it during the soak period who had not signed up for the soak test there was talk that Motorola may end soak tests altogether. Since soak test emails went out, that obviously did not end with this update, but was equally curious if people who had not signed up for the soak had indeed recieved 246, which they can answer since if they didn't sign up for it they would not be held to an NDA.
