    The subject pretty much says it all. I was listening to music on my Droid which was in airplane mode at the time, and its also blacklisted from Verizon. How the hell did I get the update?

    Don't you remember my story of how I got a Droid from some jackoff kids for $20?

    Go figure it ended up being stolen. But Verizon didn't want it back from me.. I offered to bring it in so they could get it to the owner. The probably wanted to make money off selling a new phone.

    'They' must have a secret backdoor to allow 'them' to over ride phone settings so 'they' can use your phone as a bug.

    Swyped from my Eris running xtrSense 3.

    thats CRAZY! It looks like either
    a) someone in VZW slipped up with it
    or
    b) it may be your lucky day

    dude root that thing while you can and use it as your main tethering device!

    Well I don't have service but I still got the update. and I tried to activate it on my girlfriends line and they said it was blacklisted. I wonder if the phone had the update to begin with and simply a line of code telling it when to install..
