    Verizon deliberately pushes the update out to a certain # of phones per day. Easier on them and easier for them to fix things on the fly if something goes awry on their end.

    If they pushed the OTA out simultaneously to everybody and there was a previously undetected issue with the build that bricked everyone's phones, they'd be screwed. This gives them the ability to monitor results as they push.

    Also, while I'm not an expert, I think that from a bandwidth point of view that would have to be taxing for them.

    tl;dr: it's for your safety and CYA on their part

    Don't forget that it's also personal. They are deliberately not sending it to any forum posters who might capture the update.zip and thus remove the power and the glory of the OTA!
    Some say that his dormant chips were left that way for YOUR SAFETY... Others say that once "turned on," he can not be turned off... All we know is... He's called The Stig.

    He's reliable. From what I can tell he's got many friends 'in the know' over at VZW. He was equally spot on over in CB regarding BB updates/phone launches, and the fact that (as far as I can tell) he has more than one friend in the know, he can corroborate the things he hears.

    More importantly he's a ninja...so there's that.

    That aside, the above schedule: employees first then 10K, 100K, 200K, 200K, etc. makes absolute perfect sense and is exactly how I would go about it.

    There have been some rumors flying about that the Froyo update has some bugs and has been causing issues on those phones that got them, possibly causing a pull back of the OTA by Verizon. At this point, they appear to be rumors. Has anyone else 'in the know' heard about this from over the weekend?

    I had not, but if true that would be a debacle of the highest proportions. Pulling back suggests they don't know what the problem is. Sending an OTA patch suggests they do...

    Thx. I am hoping it's just the rumor mill working OT on this one. There were conflicting reports about the flow of the OTA. Patches (believe) stated 10,000 on Friday, nothing over the weekend, then 100K, 200K, etc. The @VZWSupport twitter (don't believe) stated it was being pushed over the weekend. I think that's what might have led to some rumors surfacing that if no one was getting it over the weekend that VZW might have stopped it.

    I am sure we will see more getting it today, although it might not be until this evening.

    So i have a dumb question.....
    is the daily rollouts all done in the morning or just randomly sent throughout the day? In other words, if i dont get the update when i wake up, should i not even bother worrying about it the rest of the day?

    drlayton - I have wondered that too. Is anyone getting notifications in the middle of the day? For that matter, what is the form of the notification? a pop-up? an icon on the top bar?

    Personally,

    and it is only rumor.....

    But, if I understand correctly....

    Verizon is sending a rep out to each one of us individually to install the 2.2 upgrade...

    so it could be a while...

    Verizon loves taking forever. Remember, we only need one person to link the update.zip URL and all of us hardcore fans are in business. The Froyo business, that is
    Droid Incredible (4/29/10) -> TBolt (4/9/11) -> GNex (4/1/2012) > Droid Maxx (9/13/13)

    I'm sorry, what? What if I was out the country until 9/4 I can no longer receive the update because I missed the window?

    Also does any one know if you wipe your phone (settings > Privacy > Factory data reset) will it go back to 2.1? Or does Android 2.2 actually flash the bios so to speak? Similar to updating the bios on your mother board.

    Woke up about 45 min ago and was prompted to install the update, it appears the push is still going.
