Verizon Announces Gingerbread Update for Droid 2

We have a feeling that many of you guys already know this but Verizon has announced that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update has begun rolling out for the Droid 2. Of course it’s not just a simple OS upgrade as it also includes new apps, features, and improvements.   If you happen to own one of these handset and haven’t updated the device yet, you should be on the lookout for a notification soon. For those of you impatient types, you can grab it yourself by heading to Settings > About Phone > System Updates.  Verizon has set up a support page to help expound the virtues of the update as well as provide a little bit of hand-holding.

      I was out and about shopping a few days ago when I looked at my phone to get the time and saw that it was 40% updated.  I didn’t think anything of it until it kept asking me if I wanted to reboot, then I actually looked at what the small print said and realized it was a major update.  And then when I got home,I noticed the notifications bar had changed to blue, so since I had the time, I actually looked at it and realized that things had changed.

      Don ‘t worry, Fawzy, its coming!

    Updated to 2.3.3 on Droid 2. The phone is incredible faster and has some cool advancements. It uses a blue color scheme and you’ll have to play around a little to find the old functionality, All in all: a great update!

      Although I use the extended battery, i have definitely noted better battery life and the wifi/radio issue seems to be corrected as well.

      please tell me how to at least change it back to the black & white. It’s far too bright for my liking. Plus that white on the bottom of the screen is KILLING me. Please please please and thank you x
