I unlocked my phone and there was a pop-up message on the screen. It was saying something to the effect of ".....to keep my phone running smoothly, it is necessary to install the latest update. Plug in your phone....yada, yada, yada."
I had to touch dismiss, close or something to get to the tile screen. I had been asleep so I was still a bit foggy when I saw it, but thought "hey, an update for my phone!" Naturally, when I got up, I plugged in my phone, checked the update status and the Zune software says the phone is up to date. I left in plugged in for a few minutes thinking maybe it needed time to sync with Microsoft, but nothing.
I find it hard to think that it was just some courtesy message from Microsoft saying to keep my phone updated with the latest software version; because I have.

I'm getting something now too!
I'll let you know if the Radio's changed to what I wrote above.
Yes - I just got:
Firmware revision number: 2305.13.20110.605
Radio software version: 1.53.00.12.01_23.17w.05.13U
I am currently using this phone as a WiFi only device because the 3G was not working when I set it up and wanted to start using it. I reverted back to my DroidX waiting for this because I did not want to lose all of my set-up & settings.
I will switch to this phone & see if 3G now works (probably tomorrow) ... if not I'll go back to the DX & wait for the Global Lumia (which I hope they make).

Well, I reactivated this phone but I DID NOT get 3G to work. Let it be known it did not work before either (an eBay phone that I've been using as a WifI device)
After many minutes with a very nice 2nd level tech @ Verizon we concluded that I will have to perform a hard reset which should make the 3G kick back in and with the latest radio & firmware updates should keep it that way.
When I have the time, energy, & patience I will hard reset it, re-setup the Trophy and then reactivate it on Verizon to see if it works. I'll post the results here.
