Blaim Verizon

It boggles my mind that everytime a glitch happens to a Droid phone (mainly those from Motorola) people automatically blaim Verizon. It's like blaming a newspaper for bad news. Come on folks. Verizon does not make phones. They do not make the OS that power these phones. They sell them. Period. If your Droid X or Droid 4 or any Droid fouls up, blame the manufacturer. I just finished reading in another forum about droids turning themselves back on after being shut off. This is a common problem that most of us are well aware of. Some of these people have the belief that this is only happening to them. All of them seem to believe that it is a Verizon problem. A couple of them did mention Motorola, just a couple. My Droid X has had this problem since the last upgrade, almost all of us have this problem. My work-around is to put it to sleep instead of powering it off. And I'm not blaming Verizon, I am blaming Motorola, but I still love my Droid X. I should mention that I just traded my Droid 2 in for an LG Spectrum, and this problem has not happened with it.

I agree with you Mortb ...  and there will probably be others that will put the blame back on Verizon for ALLOWING the update(s) to go out or at least not put pressure on MOTO for at least giving us some fixed updates ...  Like you, SLEEP mode works for me. Otherwise I still really like my DX .... ymmv

I guess I am one of the people who think vzw should put some pressure on Motorola... But... I'm certainly not going to bash vzw for a problem that originates at Motorola.

True, but remember, other service providers use Motorola as well. Should AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, etc. gang up and fight Motorola? I don't think that will ever happen. Also, cell phones are just one part of what Motorola produces. Personally, I think a service provider should take a new OS and try it out themselves for about a month. Find all the bugs and get them fixed. However, there are individuals out there who want that upgrade the day before yesterday. They would be screaming if a new OS or a fix was held up for an extra 30 days. So, what to do? Darn if they do, darn if they don't.

Looks like an update is (finally) coming:

According to the PDF that's now available on VZW's website for DX support, the new software is 4.5.621.MB810.Verizon.en.US

It figures, since they did come out with the Droid X2. The newer phones get

the frosting while the older models get the crumbs.

i'd rather not get it & have who knows what in the way of problems, when i've had "0" issues, going back to dec a year ago.

i've posted some questions of "how to" but that's it.
