When will Verizon allow WebOs 2.1 update happen???

On March 7th 2011 HP Palm released WebOS 2.1.0 for Palm Pre 2.   They said it was up to Verizon to allow the update to happen on my Phone.  

 

VERIZON Can you tell me when you will ALLOW my 2.1.0 Update to happen on my Palm Pre 2?  It has voice dialing that I really need. 

 

Please allow the update SOON!!! 

 

Thanks,  Concerned Consumer.

I just got the Pre 2 and have been waiting for the update as well. Being able to do voice dial will be nice as well as the other updates in WebOS 2.1.

Verizon is becoming notorious for doing this with updates. It needs to happen soon -- the apps in the catalog are no longer available to us -- it is bad customer service and i am really tired of it -- i spend 200 dollars a month and have since 1994 when they were still airtouch -- why can they not release this update? COME ON VERIZON PUSH THE **bleep** THING OUT

i agree mespiff, its getting annoying having to wait for updates like this. i bet when apple releases a update, they are right on it. but anybody else they take there sweet a$$ time, and the steer people away from the phone with misinformation and humilation. vzw needs to get it together with updates though.

Let's just say that Verizon is 'holding back' the webos update in the same way Palm guaranteed that the pre would be the first smartphone with flash. I'm sure there is stuff to be worked out with timing to not bog the network for all five palm pre 2 users but yeah considering how Palm lied through their teeth repeatedly with the original pre, I'm not taking their word on anything.

Your "five palm pre 2 users" comment negates your bogging down the network comment and Palm can no longer lie through their teeth as they do not exist anymore.
