    UPDATE: It appears this issue has been confirmed (Link)


    While speaking with a 2nd level technical support rep regarding a phone on our account (Droid 1 with OTA received yesterday that all of a sudden had both a proximety sensor & wifi/bt radio failure), he said that the rollout had been stopped to evaluate the high number of issues being found in the wild.

    I realize that this is not a concrete source, but thought it would be worth sharing.

    Other than some small dislikes (Silent/Vibrate & Multimedia Dock),this forced 2.2 is working great.

    Anyone heard more? Could this have something to do with the later build that is floating around?

    Probably. Since the FRG22 build is already leaked from Motorola, it's possible that it included some important bug fixes and they are going to push that version instead. Who knows though, he could have just been blowing smoke.

    Agreed. I have been around the block enough to know that some folks will say anything. Anyone have a source that can confirm/deny this?

    So if they release a newer build instead, will I get the OTA update notification or will I have to force install like I did for the initial build?

    If they release an even newer build, I'm sure everyone will get it whether you have already been updated or not.

    While its premature to worry about - your phone will see any update available that is newer than what is installed. I can't think of a reason why it wouldn't work as designed.

    I think its probable that there will be another update. It took the nexus two OTAs to get Froyo right. After 2.1 was released for Droid we didnt see any other builds until 2.2. I dont think Motorola would keep making builds for the Droid unless there was a problem. They have enough other phones to update and release

    Agreed - but would still love for an option or toggle.

    Update: Hearing FRG22 will replace the current version with a 10k release early next week. This is from another tech support rep (fixing the replacement order the first one screwed up). How about those with solid sources...is this sound?

    There is an option. It's been posted many times on this forum.

    Settings > Sound Settings > Vibrate (then there's a popup)
    - Always, Never, Only in Silent mode, Only when not in Silent mode

    Back to the regularly scheduled topic.

    Sounds like he wasn't blowing smoke ;)

    OT, there seemed to be a problem with Google Voice Search, but it has apparently been fixed. Running FRG22 now, and it's very smooth. Waiting to see if the market will clear up or if I need the trusty market fix again.

    I was walking down the street one day when I saw a QR code in an advertisement in a storefront (I think it might have been Best Buy). I wanted to stop and scan it but my girlfriend wouldn't let me. :D

    So is the consensus that we are probably going to receive an additional 2.2 update OTA from Verizon in the near future?

    Well this morning my wife got the OTA FRG01B. I did the manual update yesterday. Verizon still seems to be pushing it.
