Though Verizon would have you believe that Gingerbread is already rolling out to DROID 2 Globals around the world, Motorola is apparently riding a different train of thought entirely - according to a manager on their support forums, the update isn't quite ready yet.

Misinformation indeed. Let the inevitable kerfuffle begin!

    Screw Verizon.. I'm going to sprint..

  • tarman

    I take it your phone doesn't work with Froyo and you want to switch to carrier with less coverage?

    I'm fine with the update not coming out yet. I have no issues with my phone and I use the hell out of it. I just hope that when the update to Gingerbread does come out that it makes it even better.

    • Mrwirez

      No.. I want a Nexus phone. Whether its At&t, Sprint or T-Mo.. Vzw refuses to put a pure, clean, Google experience phone out. I'm tired of the lies and waiting game. Motoblur, sense and the rest of the skins are ugly and add "weight" to the os.

  • Mrwirez

    The skins are also the reason for SIX MONTH DELAYS for a simple update. My D2G was a replacement phone from Asurion. The og Droid 1 was a great pure google phone ... I had gingerbread on it in January. This D2G is so fucking buggy I hate it.

      Yeah mrwirez is right I can't switch out of Verizon though

  • rick

    I have the droid 2 g and im starting to have troubles with the touch screen but I think gingerbread would fix it do you know when it comes out for my phone?

  • rick

    This is sum real bull what's the big ass difference in the droid x and the droid 2 that the update comes out later!

    • Mrwirez

      @Rick... My touch screen is a little buggy too. I have a hard time "pinching" open to make pictures and text larger. It gets bigger then goes right back to the original size.

      The whole thing is just frustrating... Boot-loaders, Blur, Bugs, lack of timely updates AND Verizon in general [not the network].. I am getting the Nexus 3 wherever and whenever it shows up.

    Screw Verizon and Motorola! my d2g is buggy as crap/non-existant updates. I will never buy another Motorola phone as long as I live...

  • tarman

    How is your d2g buggy? Ever since the Gingerbread update mine has been fantastic. Battery life is way better, no more random self reboots, performs a lot quicker as well. If your phone is still acting crazy after the 2.3.4 update, maybe you should contact tech support since I know a lot of people with the same phone and love it even more since the update.

  • Mrwirez

    Ok... I downloaded gingerbread 607 leak just for the GB kernel. Now I'm running cyanogenmod 7.1 [cm4d2g]! I went from 236 system files to 89. No blur and double the battery. Yeah!!
