A couple of weeks after launch, and DROID 2 gets OS upgrade OTA
It has been nearly two weeks since the Motorola DROID 2 was launched and Verizon has seen fit to grace owners of the phone with its first OS upgrade. This is a minor upgrade that will be sent out OTA and ironically, doesn't address the problem DROID 2 owners have been complaining about. The sequel to one of Verizon's most popular handsets ever, has had problems staying locked in to a 3G signal in some circumstances.

The new OS build will improve the set up of Visual Voicemail, improve syncing capabilities with Corporate Exchange groups, make sure that the picture that comes up when reviewing contacts is accurate, and enables the device to scroll during text and picture messaging. Certainly not a long laundry list of fixes, and Verizon has not commented on when owners of the phone can expect an upgrade to repair the signal problem.

What,,,,no fix,,,,and even more surprising no comments from the Droid boys. If this had been Apple not releasing a fix, there would have been an uproar,,,,,,,come on boys Verizon and Droid are the best.......

This actually seems like a problem the nexus one has. I wonder if they can even fix this one.

I'm an android user, and no comment is 100 times better than: you're holding it wrong, and buy a case. Theyll get it fixed, because its the right thing to do.

Not only do I have the Droid 2 lost signal problem, I can't even get my phone to do the available update. It says"Check for update was not available at this time. Try again later" This is my 3rd day of trying again. This phone is just about ready to take a trip back to Verizon - permanently.
