    I didn't receive it. I got tired of waiting and just flashed the 2.3.20 SBF. Battery life was already good for me and this update made it even better. I also like how they raised the lock-screen slider like on the Droid1.

    You don't have to root to run SBF. I was rooted but SBFed back to Stock 2.2. Never rooted my phone and then flashed SBF 2.3.2. It's running fine and I'm probably going to root it tomorrow.

    The One Click Root App worked excellently after flashing 2.3.2 last night. I had to redownload BusyBox for Titanium Backup to pickup on the fact that I had Root. Otherwise it's running smoothly and swiftly.

    Depends. I've heard that this pre-release was a test group more than a full blown OTA update. In which case the answer would be more than likely no. If in fact it is a full blown OTA, then you could push the issue at your local store. Afterall, there is a reason why they do it in waves.

    Not really.
    The lock moved up a bit from the bottom of the screen, I haven't run into the force close problem while looking at the batter manager, haven't done much else.

    I wish we could update via the internet over the usb cable hooked up to a computer. My understanding though is that option was blocked. Not sure if it was Motorola or Google that did that, but one of them did.

    Verizon has information on it on their website. Even steps on how to update over the air.

    So it is an official update.

    It looks like it has some important fixes, like improved battery life and faster transitions between 3g and wifi.

    Proximity sensor? What's that? This update supposedly fixes that.

    That's what make the screen turn off when you're holding the phone to your face. It reduces the chances of you hitting a button with your face when on a call.

    iavswn:

    You can't miss it unless you don't make any calls.

    1. Make call.

    2. Remove phone from face and look at it during a call; you'll see the phones screen come back on from being off. That is if you're using a stock Droid 2 like me.

    Be well,

    David
