    Not happy about the Swype changes, changed the color so its harder to see the buttons and it look like the font is a little smaller. Everything else seems to be an improvement.. Only problem for me is double tap for voice command takes for ever to launch now.

    I was one of the lucky 20 in Florida to have my phone brick out and only go to the Motorola screen and do nothing. There is no hard restart and no bringing it back to 2.1 and start over. Verizon's solution is to send you a like new replacement. Which I hope does not send me down the path of hell like they did with my Blackberry.

  3. I manually forced mine to download when 2.2 was available. Haven't really noticed a "big" difference. My stepson has the Droid Incredible, and when he got 2.2 – there was also a LED flashlight app (wonder why Droid X did not have this?). An app I use called Smart Shortcuts is now slower than it was before the update.

    Got the update… some things seem faster but the font color changes I dont like at all. The schedule is one example where the background is like a light blue and the font is white? ? ? ?

    I’ve had 2.2 a couple days and noticed a huge difference in battery life! Also when I connect the in car bluetooth it doesn’t freeze up my phone anymore, however it has shut my phone off a couple times when I have the music player on, still 2.2 is a huge improvement for me

    I wish that I never installed it! Now I have to logon to my phone with a pin, hate it! With my Blackberry, I could just glance at it to catch-up on emails and texts. With the update, my MP3s (that I bought through the phone) do not work sometimes unless I restart the phone….AND ENTER MY PIN AGAIN.

      1. Alec says:

        Actually Steve is not dumb! I have the same problem and CANNOT change the setting to remove this due to the Corporate Sync being listed as the only Admin for the phone, e.g. only it can allow those settings to be changed.

        Maybe next time you'll respond with something helpful rather than be a dick.

    I have had the Verizon Froyo push on my Droid X for several weeks now. I admit that the browser is faster, but the overall performance is far worse than before. It still isn't as bad as the Blackberry Storm (I), but I experience far more music, text, and email bugs than I did before the upgrade. Count me among the many unhappy users who found the upgrade to feel more like a downgrade.
