At least customers of one bad Motorola phone aren't being screwed entirely. Don't expect ics though.

The Droid 3 was/is a great phone. It's almost a year old and IS still getting support, obviously by this recent bug fix which affected some phones.

I bought a Windows 7 PC a month ago. When the new OS version (Windows 8) is released by the end of the year, I'm not going to cry, bitch and moan that Microsoft screwed me by not providing me the newest OS for free.

Android is an open source mobile OS. Microsoft has no problem updating all users of WP7 to the newest update.

If it's a great phone, Motorola would update it rather than leave it in the dust.

How thick headed. The LTE Nexus hasn't had an update in like 5 months, does that mean it isn't good enough for one?
Like it or not Motorola chose to pull out early on this one, but it doesn't mean the Droid3 is a bad phone.

Every time I look at a post with the Droid 3, you are posting hater comments about it. It is a great phone and I am very pleased with it. Quit being a hater

I am a DROID3 owner and i had the mms issues from january til arpil with many hours spent explain to the simple minded ppl at verizon what issues my phone was going thru. I think its bs that i buy a phone days after it comes out and within 6 months verizon/motorola release a very very slightly better one! Thanks to the issues on the phone though i managed to convince big red(cell phone nazi's) to credit my account several times to the total amount of $250 over 4 months! hahahaha!

Just upgraded OTA, now my phone will not connect via Bluetooth to my 2007 Infiniti G35. Unpaired and all. The phone simply does not "see" the car. Anyone else having similar issues?
