    I would strongly suggest signing up for this from a computer and not from your Xoom. At the end they want you to print 2 copies of an RMA confirmation page which the stock browser will not save properly. I finally just had to copy out the text from the page into a text file in order to save it for later printing, but its not in the same format. I'll have to see when I get home this evening if the page can be pulled back up on the Motorola site.

    The email confirmation that Motorola sends is the same page. If you read it, it even refers to itself as an email. And if you read the confirmation email, it says to print it and include it.

    Ah. Haven't gotten a confirmation email from Motorola yet. Did get one from FedEx that the shipping package is going out today.

    I just got done with all this, my address wasn't working in Moto's system, so it took a while, but finally I just gave a different address and it processed correctly. I got my RMA and the expected delivery is tomorrow (9/30) at 3pm.

    Per Moto, the first 75,000 completed upgrades will receive a thank you letter for doing the upgrade and a standard dock with their upgraded XOOM. I hope I am one of those 75,000 since I just completed it before noon! I'm excited!

    Damn, I almost feel like I should have gotten the 4G instead of WiFi knowing about this gift.

    But meh, I'll survive. :)

    I hope I get a dock. Though I can't even seem to load the webpage to upgrade right now. It's been loading for about 10 minutes now.

    Of course as soon as I hit submit on the post the page loaded.:rolleyes:

    I'm still waiting on the box. It was originally scheduled to arrive today at work, but the tracking never got past "Shipment information sent" and no box at work. Hope my box gets sent to me soon!

    Requested box Thursday, got box Friday and shipped out.

    Got this email at 9:36 central
    This email is to confirm that we have received your Motorola XOOM and are in process of completing the 4G LTE upgrade.

    Checked the tracking number given, and the message at the Moto website said essentially the same thing.

    Just re-checked the Moto website tracker at 5:00 central, and got this:

    Tracking Order Number:: xxxxxxxx
    This device has shipped or is in the process of being shipped back to you. If no tracking information is available, please check back at a later time to allow our system time to update.

    No shipping number was given, so its unclear if it shipped today or not.

    Updates to follow.

    They received my XOOM this morning, FedEx says they signed for it at 7:51am. Still not showing anything but received on the status page though.

    A little concerned since I've actually received 4 FedEx boxes from Motorola since Friday! Sometimes I think the company as a whole is just smoking crack.

    So for those of you upgrading, do you have to upgrade or change your data plan? Does the price increase for 4G?

    You don't have to change to a 4G data plan. The 4G plans cost the same as 3G and allow you to use 3G when 4G isn't available.

    I miss my XOOM! I've been without it for less than a day. I can't believe how much I actually use that sucker. Can't wait for it to come back dripping 4G LTE goodness!

    Still reading the same. Shipped or in the process of shipping, but no shipping information, and no box at my office.

    Same status for me. When I call to find out when its going to ship back they keep telling me the same story. Its been shipped ohh wait I dont know, let me get you to the escalation department. Then at the escalation department they tell me its shipping the day I called. So I have been told it will ship yesterday and again when I called today that it will ship today. Then I was told that they have till Friday before they have to ship it since they quote everyone 5 business days.
