    Im just wondering if anyone knows or if you have heard about when and if the DROID X will be getting Gingerbread? Also im wondering if anyone has heard anything about if the DROID X is going to be able to convert into 4G?

    It should be able to run Gingerbread but whether or not VZW/Moto decide to push it out is up in the air. As for the 4G, it doesn't have the hardware required.

    Nobody knows when or even if Gingerbread will make it to the Droid X, but one thing we know for certain: the DX will never be a 4G phone.

    Yep, many people seem to not understand that LTE/4G involves significant hardware differences and is not something that can be addressed solely via changes to firmware and/or software. So any Verizon device you purchase that is not specifically LTE/4G enabled or compatible, which includes all currently available Verizon phones, is going to be hardware limited to 3G.

    Welcome to android forums. I'm glad you took the time to start a thread! Fwiw, I generally use wifi and generally don't do 3g. These carriers advertise 4g, charge for it, be but don't have it available for most users!At this point, it's pretty much just a scheme for more $$$, imo.

    You can get 4G on your Droid X....

    All you need to do is buy a 4G MiFi when it comes out and tether to it, har har.

    I thought 4G and Gingerbread were both going to come stock on the next ApeX release?
