    Be honest. I think I'm up to 3x a day.

    You didn't put a choice for "Never". When the update comes my reminder light will be on and I'll see it when I get up.

    No point in checking when nothing has been announced.

    Another vote for "never".

    bah, that's only when it's pushed to you

    if it's available sooner but not being pushed, you won't get the light

    That never happened with my Droid. It wasn't available until it was pushed.

    Things on that list don't show up unless they've pushed to you. No matter how many times you check, nothing will show up on that list unless it's already been pushed to you. Checking for an update won't make it come sooner.

    So, I don't really bother.

    No that is wrong..

    My Droid, Incredible, and X would all have updates available before any notification was shown. The notifications are not pushed. Your phone checks for them, which is not that often.

    You may not receive the notification, but I can say with 100% certainty that your phone does not ping for them, at least on a default Android installation. If it's in your available download list, it's been sent to you OTA.

    In a month of ownership, I have checked once, just to see what it would do.

    None of the above! I manually check about once a week.

    Once a week maybe. Just checked because of this thread and nothing is there. You can set an audible tone for when a software update is sent to you.

    Why would I check?

    It's going to be announced on here and every other Android site virtually immediately after the push starts. So I'm sure I'll hear about it without compulsively checking for updates on the phone...

    Like I have said before, why 'upgrade' to what THE MAN puts out that has no root?

    As my phone sits right now, it is more then what I need.

    Ditto.

    In all honesty, you only miss out on 2.2 for a few hours at best. People like us check Google Reader and other sites enough that we would ever miss the 2.2 release.

    My thoughts exactly. Follow 1-2 droid sites on twitter and you will hear about it as soon as it happens.

    Shouldn't this update work like the last one? Mine downloaded and installed it itself, then just told me about it the next morning. Naughty phone.

    Lol "the man".

    But you did not hesitate in paying verizon/moto for the phone in the first place.

    There are differences between buying something, and then being told what to do with it... ;)

    They tell me I have to pay for WiFi, I say go pound sand.

    I have never checked for an update. I will just wait for an announcement or something that it has been released. I'm not too concerned about updating to 2.2 right now.
