Default It's here, it's here...

A 247+ MB software update is now downloading off of my Verizon prepaid legacy plan. With UNLIMITED DATA, I am downloading it off of my Droid 3's WiFi tether because they wouldn't let me activate this Moto G without changing to a new metered data plan (FU&% that). I am from Altona NY (near Canada).

These updates usually take 1-2 weeks to roll out to all devices.

Yes, but manually checking you would think would trigger the update. I should note, I have been checking over WiFi. Anyone able to pull the update from cache? Maybe the rest of the world can get it a bit faster that way?

East coast/CT - booted up my phone last night and had the update notification - now on 4.4.2.
I use it on WiFi only- never activated on Verizon. I just turn airplane mode on, then WiFi on, except if I want to use the FM radio, in which case I turn airplane mode off.

I use mine similarly but I never even bother putting it in Airplane mode.

No it certainly shouldn't, there is a good piece on reddit by Google Engineer Dianne Hackborn as to why that's not the case, even manually checking doesn't change your spot in line.

Can you provide a link? I wouldn't mind reading it. I figure it was location based that determined your spot in line.

Edit: Found it via Google. Article mentions side loading via adb for the impatient. But I don't see the update anywhere.
