    a friend of mine said froyo was officially released for the Dinc, but a google search reveals nothing to me. He said it was released for the dinc and the evo, and that a co work of ours updated his evo with the official 2.2. anybody have any facts on this issue?

    Because Verizon likes to test the hell out of things and remove anything that they could charge money for. Once they remove the wifi hotspot and things of that nature they will hopefully release it.

    Why give out something free that you can charge extra for. Gotta love big red!

    Well VZ tests it out and clears every nook and cranny. When it is released, it will be a safe OTA, i hope. :)

    Sprint looks at Froyo for Evo and says..."cool!"

    Approved.

    A good example is a recent 2.1 update that bricked phones due to piss poor Sprint testing.

    I would be calling, yelling, demanding a brand new one, mine is running perfect and would hate for it to die because of a ota. :)
