Beware of the DROID software update.

I downloaded it this morning and now have a paperweight.  Verizon tells me that I have to do a hard update.  All my contacts, apps, emails.  Everything gone.

 

 

Happy freakin' Easter to me.

Strange, I did my update this afternoon and everything seems fine! Pinch zoom has been added which is pretty sweet... I guess the lesson is for those who haven't done the update yet, back up everything just in case.

you can re-sync your contacts since they are on google/gmail.

 

your apps are saved through your gmail

 

if you didnt delete your emails through gmail or your regular email, then they are there.

That happened to me this morning also.  I had nothing including no phone service after the update.  I took my battery out with the phone off, put it back in and turned the phone back on.  My phone returned to normal and the update is completed.  I know nothing about tech stuff, but was very frustrated and thought this might help you.

i have never done the OTA, just manually updated my phone myself.

 

with the OTA, did it automatically reboot your device cuz i know in the manual update, you have to reboot your Droid for the update to take effect and by the way you make it sound is that you did not reboot your Droid until you did the battery pull?
