    Has anyone heard if they will be addressing the email push issue with the pop 3 accounts on the upcoming Dec. 11th update?

    Thanks for the great info.

    How is the software updated on the phone? Is is automatic on a battery pull after the release?

    You should receive the Update OTA {Over-The-Air} so you will simply see a pop up message on your screen when it comes to your phone :)

    Would it behoove us droid owners to plan a back up of our phone? After tweaking it to within an inch of it's life (figuratively speaking) I'm a bit paranoid the OTA upgrade is gonna trash all our careful work.

    Uh, not like we haven't backed it up already, I mean (wink, wink), er, several times, in fact.

    Dec. 10th, create new gmail account, perform "hard reset" (boot phone with "power button + X" method, and then log into phone with new account...make sure backup not enabled. Let phone get updated on 11th, make sure everything running fine. If not, perform another hard reset, and login with original account.

    That "might" get you back to a pre-update state. Without being able to backup the original ROM, it may be difficult.
