    So I'm pretty pissed that I still haven't gotten the update and if I haven't gotten this one I'm pretty sure I wont ever get any.

    Going to swing by verizon today and complain. I'm on .514. I can't believe the morons forgot to include all the people on .514.

    EDIT: Yes I've tried manually checking for updates and get nothing back.

    Keep us posted, as I'm interested as to why this maybe the case? Maybe they are trying to force more users into actually PURCHASING their devices (not intended towards you of course as I know you coughed up some green backs for your device).

    They aren't morons, you just don't know how to use your phone. Did you even attempt to go to ->Settings ->About Phone ->System Updates and search for an update? Probably not. Don't complain about things when its your own ignorance that caused something. People can't hold your hand and spoon feed you technology.

    Once someone gets the update.zip you would be able to install it that way

    i can honestly say you have some serious issues. I have read 5 of your posts this morning, and they all hold a very annoying and defiant tone. I understand you may be unhappy today or you may have a serious ailment or whatever. that does not, however, give you the right or the authority to be a rude shmuck to someone asking a simple question. If you have nothing nice or useful to say or provide here, its best to just be quiet dont you think? I mean you were just arguing with someone else 15 minutes ago....i guess its a daylong routine?:thinking:

    Seconded. Especially towards a member of this community who has provided us with several previews of the device before it launched.

    Most people are ignorant and want things spoon fed to them (probably all teenagers). If they even read a the Droid update Sticky post, their issue would be resolved.
    When someone says "Going to swing by verizon today and complain."

    Why shouldn't I call out someone for planning on going to complain to a Verizon store representative that has absolutely nothing to do with the persons issue. Oh my I can't use my phone, and didn't bother reading instructions, and didn't attempt to manually update my phone, now I'm going to go give someone a hard time for my incompetence?

    End of story.

    Haha wow your an idiot. How about you don't ASSume you know what I have and haven't tried pal.

    Manually checking for the update comes back with nothing.

    Seriously how did you all off a sudden jump to the conclusion that I haven't been trying to manually checking for the update?

    Seems like a lot of people don't like you. Take a hint. ;)

    How about you shut down your computer for the day until you get a better attitude.

    From reading the OP's posts im sure he knows enough to manually check for updates. From what he is saying I think the pre release phones are different.

    Again, how is a rep at a Verizon store responsible for you not getting your update? Why should they take your complaints and probably seems like verbal abuse because you did call them an "A holes".

    Trust me, if you were in the same boat you would be equally infuriated and demand satisfaction. You wouldn't by chance be related to the user Exidor07 would you?

    I'm sure he's attempted the proper procedures, and it's not "out there" to suspect that VZW/Motorola have no immediate plans to support demo units, or at least not until the update has been released to retail units.

    Damstr, Let me know what you find out. My other X (the pre-release one) is still on .514 like yours. I'm curious to hear what they have to say.




    Wow, talk about assuming something and having a negative attitude.

    Since it's a Verizon phone he needs to speak to someone at a Verizon store, which would be a Verizon representative, makes sense really.

    Hi let me point something out. Your a junior member meaning you haven't been around long. He has. He's also given us preview on this device and advice on various launchers and other things. If you can't curb yor attitude please take it somewhere else before I report you. I'm not in the mood this morning to deal with five year tantrums on this board. He owns a pre-released device and it's a valid concern that he didn't receive an update and even the board members were joking about thus possibly happening. Please find yourself gone or fix your attitude or I will be reporting you to Steven. :) Have a great day!

    If you do not wish to contribute then please don't, this is not how we should act on Android forums, either help or don't.

    OP, I would take it up there if you don't get it soon, or at least call and find out what is going on. They might be able to swap Xs out for you.

    Please do, I don't want to be stuck with a paperweight. I'll be making some calls also and I'll let you know what I've found out.

    Yep. I did a "Check for Updates" first thing after I woke up and I was updated and back running in less than 5 minutes.
