People have been recieving their OTA automatically to their device over the last week or so. Its kind of random when it comes, your neighbor could get it one day, and you the next week.
However all the OTA's are supposed to be sent out by today the 18th, but it could take longer.
Hope this answers your question

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
Sorry, after a little more research, i've found out that HTC has confirmed that the Eris will not be receiving the 2.2 update any time soon. However sometime in the future is still another mystery.
I don't know what the reason is, whether it be HTC slacking, or just 2.2 doesn't work / look quite right.
More details to come.

As much as I would like 2.2 on my Droid Eris, I am not real sure it going to get either.
Don't worry my phone is not getting the 2.2 update either.
im also an ERIS user. I like the Sense program but if i had to choose between Sense and 2.2 FROYO i would go FROYO.
Also to add i wouldn't mind not getting the hot-spot and all the other bells and whistles, but atleast give me the upgraded OS.
Even if you have to get rid of Sense. Atleast that will make many Eris customers who are locked in 1 or 2 year contracts in some sense happy. And not rubbed the wrong way by selling us a phone that was basically on the EOL (End of Life) list when it was first released. Which I myself am very unhappy about. Because when you go to buy a smartphone you normally think about it very carefully. And when you pay that much for it and it was just released you would never think that it would be EOL very very soon after
And to add. I haven't done this myself, but i have several friends who have the Eris and have a leaked 2.2 FROYO on it and the phone is capable of running it. Out of the respect of my friends i will not say who they are and where they got it, sense i made a promise not to release any info on it other than it works (Not fully and has bugs but non the less it works).
The most common reason is that the Eris can't handle it. I can tell you for a fact that it can. Don't ask me how I know, I can't talk about that here. I think they are having a hard time getting sense to work with it and they don't want to just abandon sense on phones that are already running it, which could be why the d'inc hasn't gotten it yet.
You are right. Some of the phones just cannot support the 2.2 update.I think it goes mainly towards the older android phones. The newer android phones will get the 2.2 for sure.
