    This isn't Apple people, not everyone gets it all at once. It is a very slow rollout for the first 2 weeks or so. If no major issues are reported, then, and only then, more and more people will get it. It DOES NOT matter what carrier your on or where your located AT ALL. You'll get it when your numbers up... that's just how it is.

    Let's just say many years of doing this with many different carriers AND manufacturers.
    Apple makes iOS, for phones all made by Apple, that are all exactly the same, everything either works or it doesn't.
    Google makes Android, for phones made by many different manufacturers, with hundreds of different models and hardware configurations, for many different carriers all over the world, that all want to add there software tweeks on top of what Google puts out, this includes carrier software AND manufacturer software. this takes much more time and work to make sure everything works before releasing to the masses, that's why software updates are far and few between for Android phones, and are pushed out in a "staged rollout" manor...
    That's the short explanation

    i still got nothing
    Nothing here either.
    As always, these roll-outs are staged... It will typically take up to 2 weeks for all devices to get it.
    As has been stated... this process takes about 2 weeks to complete. Typically less the initial release is about 10% of handsets, then a few days pass and another 20% assuming no issues arise. If there are still no problems after a few more days, it is pushed to more handsets then finally available to all.

    Be patient... we are finally getting it, a few more days or a week or two won't make any real difference.

    side loading it using recovery mode is how i got it before it came to me as a OTA. N seems to inject some new life into this ol' phone.

    Ok, I'm sort of a novice at these things. When I try to open the downloaded file, it is trying to open it with my messaging app and I get an error message saying it's not a valid messaging "theme". How do I open it with another app and which app do I use to open the file.

    Ok, I copied the downloaded file to the SD card. I went to recovery mode again, tried "install from SD card" and got a message "external and internal memory cannot be mounted. Installation failed."

    Finally, right?

    Motorola kept their word in releasing this. It's a solid update, even though it's relatively late.

    If you want more regular updates, it sounds like you need to switch back to a carrier phone.

    I think you need to download the zip file to your phone and not your SD card.

    Yeah it is a solid update. Samsung and T mobile together convinced me that ill never go back to an carrier branded phone....never.

    I eventually took the plunge. I have to say that I'm enjoying this update. It didn't blow my mind, but it also didn't cripple my phone either. Bluetooth does seem to be a bit better this time around as I was having issues with pairing to some devices that I'm now able to with the update.

    Ok. i read on XDA it has something to do with how the SD card/memory is configured.

    I think this is another small scale test rollout, and most of us will get it months from now. Again.
