    I didn't either. But I wonder is it a network upgrade, rather the 2.1 upgrade? The latter I hope!

    This does not mean anything for the 2.1 upgrade I am afraid. What I see form that is that maybe the coverage in the area has been upgraded.... WAIT I might have it!! Verizon is supposed to unveil skype mobile tomorrow at CTIA!!

    CTIA 2010: Microsoft, AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Palm, and loads more : Product Reviews Net

    It could mean you need to update the phone on the network for it to do coding for calling over 3g since that is a new feature?? Maybe or I am just trying to not get pulled back into the 2.1 black hole rofl!

    Based on what the e-mail looks like, I am assuming it is not the 2.1 upgrade.

    Why would we need to dial *228 to get 2.1, when we received 2.01 via the Android System Update?

    *228 is network stuff, not system software.

    I would much rather prefer a network upgrade over the 2.1 OTA, IMHO.

    just speculating....

    maybe Verizon needs to roll out a network update before the 2.1 update.
    since the droid is getting updates all over the world BESIDES the US may indicate a Verizon issue.
    Verizon would then update their network so the 2.1 update can be rolled out.

    again this is just speculation.
    but i'm excited for skype :)

    I have not received this message yet but I really want 2.1 already! Maybe I'll just root but I want to read up on everything and understand what the heck I'm doing first.

    A network update would be nice. I would like to see it stop dropping to 1x in the subway tunnel.

    I might be the only one thinking this, but I would prefer an announcement about Skype from CTIA over a 2.1 update. I'm heading out of the country, and I'd love to be able to call over wifi. I'm already running a ROM anyway...
