    I've read different info on the MotoDroid update that started today and would like some details from BBOS members who have installed the update. New lock screen & other graphic changes??? Better battery life. What's the scoop?

    I haven't gotten the update notification yet but did read on VZW's page the following (found here)

    Enjoy improved performance with these OS enhancements.
    Verizon Wireless is pleased to announce new software enhancements for your DROID by Motorola smartphone. The Droid by Motorola software
    version AP:ESD56/BP:C_01.3E.01P update includes numerous improvements.

    The following enhancements to the Droid by Motorola have been made:
    xx OS stability is improved.
    xx Battery life is improved.
    xx Camera auto focus functionality is improved, and time between
    shots is reduced.
    xx Enhancements for three-way calling.
    xx Audio for incoming calls is improved.
    xx When receiving a call on call waiting, the speakerphone now
    remains on.
    xx Bluetooth® functionality is improved; background echo is eliminated.
    xx Improved Bluetooth phone book transfer of contacts to in-vehicle
    Bluetooth solutions.
    xx After closing a GPS application, the GPS icon will now automatically
    be removed from the notification panel.
    xx Users can now receive SMS and MMS messages after an EMS
    message is received.
    xx SMS and MMS may now be sent to seven-digit addresses.
    xx Google® contact merging has been updated to accommodate
    seven-digit numbers.
    xx Visual Voice Mail notices now arrive instantaneously.
    • The corporate calendar widget user interface is updated.


    Also according to BGR not everyone will receive the OTA update at the same time:

    Here’s what we’ve got: a clear explanation from a VZW connect that outlines how the OTA updates work for the Motorola DROID. At noon today, approximately 1,000 people received the notification to update their handset. At around midnight this evening, 9,000 more will receive it. After the initial 10,000, there is a 48-hour waiting period. No one after that receives anything until December 10th at 12AM, which will be 200,000 people. It will continue at 200,000 devices a day until everyone is updated.

    When I get the notification I will be sure to update here and let you know what I find.

    I just read the BGR info a minute ago. I'm really curious about the graphical changes to the lock screen and a couple other things (using viigo & deleted read feeds... I miss FeedR!)

    Thanks for the post though.

    There was a photo of the lock screen change on phandroid. I'm mobile on my bb now so I don't have that address with me. It looked like the time font is larger and offset to the left. The unlock and sound button are now longer on a slide arch. It looks like u just slide left or right now.
