Hey,

I am so sorry for posting the wrong link.  The update is 5.7.906.XT862.Verizon.en.us.  I fixed the links in the prior post.

Sorry for the mixup.

I read the update was released May 8 2012, but as of today my Droid 3 is telling me check for update is not available at this time, I am thinking this means the update is not available in my area yet. Anyone have any idea when this update will be ready to download.

Hey,

As far as I know, it should be available by now for all Droid 3 users.  You may try removing the back cover and pulling the battery and then restarting.  Then go to settings and click on About Phone and see if it shows up for you. 

The system version is 5.7.906.XT862.Verizon.en.US and seems to be mostly software changes.  The only visible change I could find was the Emergency Alerts icon listed in the apps.  It doesn't seem to be anything "Earth-shattering" as far as I can see.

Enjoy the 906 update - NO ICE CREAM SANDWICH for you (You can thank Verizon for that one...) . 906 seems to be an improvement.

I received the Droid 3 update about 5 days ago.  We are on the West Coast.

Boy, what a lot of effort to get the update.  I had to reboot my phone four times (also removing the battery each time and counting to 30) before I finally got the notification there was an update to download.  I had to manually initiate the update as I never received a notice from the server that there was an update available.

I highly recommend that you plug in your phone and turn on Wi-Fi so that the download goes quicker (you are downloading around 230MB after all).  Verizon states in their PDF it could take one to two hours to download over 3G, which is really funny since they do not allow any applications to be downloaded over 3G, you must use Wi-Fi and applications are WAY smaller than 230MB.  Using Wi-Fi, the update takes around 15 minutes to download.
