    Default Droid Maxx/Mini/Ultra survey email; possible soak test soon?

    In the past 10 minutes I got an email from Motorola asking me to do the whole Survey Monkey jazz and give the MEID etc. That usually means a soak test is coming. This was for Maxx, Ultra and Mini as the email referenced.

    I'm at a 4th of July party for 2-3 hours but if you want proof of the email I'll have to work on screen shotting and editing it and getting it up soon.

    EDIT: This is best I can do on phone while being with family so bear with me. Also edited thread title to reflect all three phones even though we are in the Maxx forum. Hope this helps.

    Received the same email as well. Signed up during my break at work. Hopefully within a week or two the 4.4.4 soak will start

    You must be apart of the feedback program. You can sign up at Motorola's support site

    It appears as if "confidential" means something different than I thought

    Usually it rolls out the week after they send the survey so you should see something next week I say.

    I agree with your post. But these leak every time so I'm hardly the first "violator" across the numerous Android talk sites and boards. Nor do I care. What are they gonna do, sue me? LOL!

    But seriously if it wasn't me someone else would break it. So its all good.

    It says confidential, but then a story always gets posted on the front page of the AC site with a story about the soak test that is coming out. So they can't fault one of us too much if big sites are putting it out as an actual story. And yea, they get leaked every time one of these comes out.

    Well, Moto is being sold to Lenovo, which is a Chinese company, so when Jackie Chan or Jet Li come after you, don't come crying to me for help.

    Not to mention you haven't broken a confidentiality agreement by posting a screenshot of the email. The email says nothing about being a tester for new software, nor have you agreed to anything at this point.

    I'm pretty sure is that the original agreement, when signing up for the feedback network, contains a confidentiality clause that would apply in this case as well. So right then and there, spreading the word would be in violation of that agreement.
    I'm alsp pretty sure that people like the owner of this blog are being used to unofficially spread the word. Otherwise the authors of the email would have to be complete idiots to not assume that a news hound, who only lives to spread the latest scoop, would actually feel morally obligated to keep anything confidential.

    Being from a different generation, it is discouraging to read how many agree that someone else's bad behaviour is justification for one's own poor behavior.
    Sad...

    I'm not entirely sure why its supposed to be so secret anyways. In my experience with the last few updates the real version gets pushed out a week or less after the soak test pushes.

    For cripes sake it is just a freaking update registration to discuss bugs before its released, and you're turning this into some sort of Bible class on morality.

    Look, if this was a family member saying in an email, I have cancer but dont tell anyone else, I wouldn't say it. That's 10000000000 times more important than, what is in the grand scheme of things, a piddly email on a piddly software update for something your generation (I'm guessing) didn't even remotely have at one point. If I'm disqualified from the "test", oh noes. My life isn't going to end. This isn't federal government secrets here.

    If I didn't make this post, someone else does. If they are that concerned about secrecy, then selecting members of the public to test it is not the way to go. They, among anyone else, should know the news would get out there anyway. Why start to make it essentially public if you want it sooooo confidential?

    So instead of reading the email and acting in your post on your moral high horse like we are all going to Federal prison for life, just take the damn news and be happy an update is soon. I swear, responses like yours are more of a buzz kill than Buzz Killington.

    It's just a shame that companies offer programs like this, and all they ask in return is for people not to say anything about it. Which some people for whatever reason cannot do. The end result is they will stop offering programs like this.

    I said my peace in my last post. If you don't like it, you're free not to read the thread or report this to Motorola or the FBI or whoever. Seriously, it's news people want to know, so why not share it? If it was THAT confidential, trust me, they wouldn't be sharing it with the public. They know exactly what's going to happen when they send the e-mail and eventually send out the soak test.

    Anyone who understands what I am saying can clearly see how you miss my point completely.

    I could care less about Motorola and their survey, feedback forum or confidentiality agreements .

    I was talking about basic behavior after having agreed to certain conditions.

    I completely understand your motivation to be benign and stemming from a place of trying to be helpful. Understanding though, doesn't mean agreeing.
    I swear, observing how any agreement seems meaninglessness is the biggest buzz kill of all.

    P. S. : as far as I'm concerned, my MAXX is a tool to me and as such it runs flawless on 4.4.2.
