    Droid Update?

    Did anyone on here get an update yesterday for the Moto Droid? My dad and I both have the phone. He got an update, but I haven't seen one. Anyone else get it or not get it? Know how I can get it?

    It's being pushed to random groups. You'll get it eventually. You'll be prompted to install when you get it. I'm still waiting to. I am thinking about rooting mine anyway though.

    I was confused because the last time we got an update, it popped right up. We both had it within an hour of each other.

    Don't remember what all he said, but I know they added two more wallpaper screens among other things.

    Re: Droid Update?

    Is this the patch for that hack that sends texts to a pay per text site?

    Re: Droid Update?

    It's not a hack, this upgrades from Android 2.1 to Android 2.2.

    Although 2.2 has been available for a long time for those who are rooted.

    Re: Droid Update?

    OK...My daughter is due for an upgrade and wants either the Droid 2 or Droid X. Any recommendations? She liked the idea of having the keyboard, which I believe the Droid 2 has.

    Re: Droid Update?

    highly suggest the keyboard one. touch screen is too small for it to be effective. imo

    Re: Droid Update?

    Going from a Blackberry to a Droid Eris, I was afraid that I would miss a physical keyboard. I have not missed it once. Installing Swype (not available yet in the Marketplace) made the virtual keyboard even better.

    Re: Droid Update?

    I have the Droid X and love it... I had a curve and was afraid of not having a physical keyboard.. but I don't miss it all... The thing that made me decide not to wait was everyone that I asked that had the Droid said they didnt use the physical keyboard much if not at all...
