    My buddy and i both bought the Droid 2 this past month. I bought the R2D2 edition, he bought the regular edition. He received the update to Gingerbread 2.3 this past Monday (Nov. 8th). I keep checking and my R2D2 edition says my phone is up to date with 2.2 - Did anyone get the update to 2.3 on their R2D2 edition? Or are they not going to release the update to the R2D2s? What gives!!

    That update isn't for the R2DROID2. Also (facepalm) why is this in the Motorola DROID section?

    Yeah I know. Thanks. I am new to the forum and saw that i posted in the wrong spot but i guess only the moderator can move the thread so I re-posted it in the correct location.

    Sorry for the mistake on the original post. Thanks

    The update was not to gingerbread android 2.3. It was to the system. It is still android 2.2. Just some bug fixes. You aren't missing much.

    All I know is that the D2 versions can be very confusing. Let's stick to 2.2, 2.25, 2.3 etc. In the words of Lil Jon - CARAAAAZY

    So wait, you just happened to take the screen shot at the same time as me? 12:07PM? And you just happened to have the same black status bar? I call BS.

    Ummmm............yeah..........What are you trying to say?

    I guess we were both looking at our phones at the same time. Must be a coincidence...LMAO!!!

    Ok - that was a joke. I left the time so you guys would figure it out. I haven't seen my buddies phone. So maybe he was looking at the system version instead of the Android version. I'll have him double check.

    Amazing what you can do with photoshop - right??!!!!

    You suck at treading water dude. As well as backpedaling. You are good at putting your foot in your mouth though.

    Double checking wouldn't make a difference I guess, since it is the system version. The "internet" would be quite aware.

    Lets avoid this:

    The Update was from Verizon not Google/Android.

    Motorola Droid 2 Update Now Going Out for All | Android Phone Fans

    It just fixed bugs in the phone like the GPS and it moved the Unlock bar up.. It also did some other stuff but I can not remember them or the article that listed them.

    It had nothing to do with the Android Version.
