Motorola Cliq Update Delayed

cliqupdate1

Update: Some users in the comments and via Twitter are reporting that if you do a manual search for updates, its available!

To say that a lot of you have been angrily awaiting the expected Motorola Cliq update this week would be putting it mildly. Frustration has turned to anger judging by the comments as Motorola Cliq fans all but demand their updates. Whether or not you agree or disagree with the Motorola OTA rollout timetable usually spanning across a number of days, there is a good reason it has yet to see appear on your phones. As it turns out there has been a slight delay, till the 22nd in fact. Counting today, that’s just four days and since you’ve waited this long for improvements, another few days really shouldn’t hurt. However, if you’ve been wondering just where the hell your update is, guess you’re waiting a little bit longer.

    Glad you posted that David. I am glad I could help out with that..

  • watbetch

    Someone at Motorola customer support is about to get an ear full

    • David

      Yeah cuz that will make them change their mind. You’ll show them!

      • MichMan

        Yeah! They want to go home to their families over the weekend? I’ll show them!

      • watbetch

        Change their minds? Who said that was the point?

      • Jennifer

        Customer support has nothing to do with it. They just answer the phone.

    • watbetch

      I’m aware!!!!!

    WEWRwreWERWERWADFAS I’m mad, lol. I’ll deal thou, I guess.

  • timmyjoe42

    David, you rule.

  • David

    I understand these things happen. We have waited this long. A few more days won’t hurt. I would rather they release it with the bugs fixed than to roll it out with bugs. These things happen. No big deal, there are worse things in this world right now than this….really.

    • phil

      I posted this info about 1230 today look in comments on last tmo news about cliq updates when are we going to get accurate news here not just uninvestigated rumors I made 1 phone call and found out more info than you have please gets facts not rumors please

  • http://pop-droid.com Embrace

    Funny, your news is amazing….

    Cause im downloading the update right now… you guys should really get more accurate information :)

    • David

      So tmonews.com is actually correct, the update was released IN ERROR and more than likely is not ready and those that downloaded it with not be happy soon because there ARE issues that are not fixed yet that will cause issues, this is why it was pushed back in the first place. Watch….those who got the update in error will start posting all kinds of crap on here about how they are having issues with the new update.

  • watbetch

    I GOT THE UPDATE!!!!!

  • Scott

    I got it too!

  • Erin

    I just got it too, cool.

  • arizdegenerate

    YEAH it is here. Fyi to all will not install if battery life is under 15% even plugged in.

  • Steven Y

    I got it on my Nexus one!!! Maybe it will fix the 3g issue???

  • Spinner49

    Hi I live in Boston does anyone know when i will get the update ???

    • Steven Y

      try Settings > About Phone > System Updates and see what it says..

      • Spinner49

        I’ve tried that and it says that ” the device is up to date! “

  • eddyy27

    go to settings -> about phone -> then system updates, and you should have it.

  • john

    Just got the update.

  • Willy

    I started to download it, but it stopped and I got a message saying it was recalled when it got to 7%…..

  • Spinner49

    Is there anybody in Boston who has gotten the update ??

  • matb321

    no update in Dayton,Ohio

  • eddyy27

    seems like it was recalled -__-

  • Wicked1

    Well, I’m in Cali and I got the update like 40 minutes ago, everything looks fine. If it was pulled back, does that mean I will have to download it again and re-install when it is re-released?

  • patches7

    I am in Cali too. It’s 20:54. I just checked 3 times that there was no update for me. So it’s pulled back. I am very very very sick of them keep announcing about new updates and pulling them back right away!! I am not one of those who love to complain about updates like those Droid children. I waited and I don’t mind waiting at all. But they keep releasing and then pulling back right away is just plain stupid. Aren’t everything well planned? I mean why do they keep doing this? 3 F-king times!!! F them!!

    • David

      Oh my god patches7 would you relax! OBVIOUSLY the rollout was not supposed to happen yet. You are not the only one that did not get it! What is the rush? It is not even due out until next month. This was obviously an error and was not meant to happen. “They” messed up, it happens so stop whining, you will get your update soon.

  • eddyy27

    i don’t think so, i got it too, this same thing happened to me back in late November with the 1.1.31 update. me and a couple of people got the update a week before the official release, and my phone did not have any major issues.

  • poopman

    can you get OTA updates over wifi? i dont have the data plan yet but i use the wifi.

    • David

      No. I was told by t-mobile that any account with the unlimited data on their account and an IMEI belonging to the device will get the update. Also anyone who has rooted their device will not get any updates.

  • Jason

    Im in Wisconsin and still dont have any updates!!

  • Scott

    The update has a bug in it. When ever someone texts me it shows the day before as the date!

  • David

    To all you guys bashing tmonews.com please do the rest of us a favor and find another blog. This is a blog and David and the rest of the team work hard and do a great job here! What was reported about the update is correct, and the update was released in ERROR (shit happens) and that is why is was recalled. I read some of these comments telling tmonews to get their information correct and other comments bashing and insulting the writers of this site, look guys, nothing is 100%. Tips come in, if they can’t be confirmed as 100%, this site has always said that. – have seen “rumour file” and “take it with a grain of salt” many times and some of the people that read these great articles on here seem to overlook that. These guys do a good job here, I personally do not read any other t-mobile blog except this one. So for you that obviously don’t like this site and feel the need to post insults to the writers on here, please find anothher blog. Thank you. Thank you David and the team of tmonews, you guys are doing a great job.

    • BronxBebe

      I GOT AN UPDATE! Oh wait I have a SKLX09 we just had another outage again the other night-sighs..
      David, good post this is the only place I come for Tmo news and even other sites borrow or mention this one. No one will ever be satisfied with anything and everything cos nothing’s perfect in this world.
      I GOT AN UPDATE-WOO HOO! I wished, lol.. oh wait yeah I did updates for FB&Twitter…
      Live&laugh a lil folks can’t hurt much..

    • Jason

      No, i like bashing on this blog thankyou very much. Myself and most others know this blog is unofficail and dont mean much. But….i’ve been hearing shit about updates since i bought my cliq at christmas time of 09. Upgrading to Android 2.1 and the other smaller updates. It shouldn’t take this long for anything.There is something majorly wrong with MOTOROLA if this keeps happening. Tmobile is suppose to get the Iphone this summer sometime. If these “updates” are not in place by then. I say Fuck Motorola. I’m getting an Iphone. With TMOBILE or AT&T. rather stick with tmobile, but oh well, shit happens apparently. Right?? I will change carriers if i have too. I’ll pay the early end of my contract fee if i have too to get a maker of phone that does that they say. not stringing people along. Then i can truly say MOTOROLA CAN SUCK MY BIG WHITE CUM MAKING DICK!!

      • timmyjoe42

        You need some anger management. If you are this upset over a firmware update, god help you.

  • watbetch

    When the rep I spoke to contacted the CLIQ department she said that they said it was coming in 3 waves.

    There is one tiny bug that I can see for now and it’s in the menu, whenever you highlight something the screen gets brighter. The touchscreen itself is more accurate now tho..

    • BronxBebe

      Watbetch, I must tell you I love your avy! Puts a big silly amusing smile on my face!

      • watbetch

        Ya I love pedobear too.

  • word

    Thanks for updating us guys. Seems like we have all waited forever…
    Motorola and Tmobile need to get their acts in order. The reason why most people on here are upset is because they love the phone but can’t stand how out of date it is compare to other devices out there. Please keep us posted and Maybe, just Maybe in the next few days we will all have had the “Glorious” update for the ClIQ.

  • timmyjoe42

    No update here.

  • word

    My phone has been “Checking for Update” for almost 30min but no result. Anyone seeing this on their Phone……
    “Checking for Available Updates
    Please Wait….”

  • timmyjoe42

    From T-Mobile Twitter:

    “At this time the CLIQ update will begin rolling out to devices the week of February 22nd. :) ^JC”

  • Spinner49

    is 1.3.8 the same as android 1.6 or is it still android 1.5 ???

    • timmyjoe42

      1.5

  • Jennifer

    Motorola isn’t required to give us any sort of updates. They could just say, screw it, deal with the problems. They aren’t doing that though. I’m sure there is a good reason why the updated wasn’t released on time. Everyone has survived without it for however long you have had the Cliq and no one has died because the touchscreen isn’t as responsive as it could be. Another few days, weeks, months, however long it takes will not kill anyone. Be glad you have a phone from a company that acknowledges there are issues and are trying to fix those issues, and stop bashing Tmonews. They are doing their best to get us info as soon as they find out. I work for T-Mobile and I usually read stuff here before I find out at work. They are doing a great job and can’t get us info they don’t have.

    • David

      Thank you Jennifer, very nicely said! I said something similar above. I worked for T-mobile for 5 years from 2002-2007 and decided to go into a nursing career. This sight does a great job and those haters that just have nothing good to say (except for healthy debate) should find another blog to bash. Peace!

    • watbetch

      If you took the comments here as 100% serious, you have to stop taking what you read so seriously.. Motorola promised the updates regardless of what they are or aren’t required to do. If they want to launch and leave the CLIQ they would be doing nothing other than putting another nail in their coffin.

  • sidekicker

    hey does anyone know why T-Mobile’s 3G covergage map isn’t working?

  • khaltz

    Mines been workin fine

  • word

    Any news about the update?

  • Rex

    Good morning … and nothing!

  • psn

    Hey what’s up guys, this is more towards the peoeple that say that moto doesn’t have to do anything and that we are lucky that they are trying to fix the issues. Yeah that’s true but trust me it would be bad for them to try and just drop the phone like that because that will only make them look bad especially when it comes to popular phones. Its like that company that is keeping their phone on 1.5 people buy the phone thinking that the company is going to be updating the phone as much as they can but then they find out they are not leaving the 1.5 cave. People are not going to want to buy a phone from a company that loses interest in their products. You could argue that its only a couple of days but we have been waiting since the first day it was supposed to come out. And that’s not including the time they released the updated for 15 min. This company is only hurting themselves. The droid is getting all this support while we are getting left in the dark. And for the record. The bugs on this phone have gotten me into a little bit of trouble since the slide to answer thing doesn’t work, not answering phone calls can. Leave a bad impression on you especially when they are trying to extend job opportunities and things of that nature believe me I dodged a bullet. So come on its good to defen the company but there has to be a line drawn at some point. They need to step their game upwe paid for these phones and they hear our voices all the time so there is no excuse not to be dropping the ball.

    • Jason

      same here they dont need to do that to people and i dont think they will. just think that it is a software problem and they dont want to put an update out there with the same bugs and maybe worse ones than before so i can wait but just as frustrated as everyone else!!!!! lol nothing yet by the way lol

      • Noel

        Yep, Nothing here yet either.

  • psn

    Jason thanks for that comment I’m just a little fired up at the moment and needed to get that off my chest

  • tooliguy

    This whole stressed out thing that some people get caught up in is the reason they rather not announce updates that are coming. I’m sure they have would like people to be happy and even excited about updates but mad and pissed off and the like just wasn’t what they had in mind.

  • Ktwst

    The new update is actually not until the WEEK of the 22nd, it’s not necessarily going to happen on the 22nd.

    • david

      Thats true! im sitting here waiting for no reason when it could come in for me towards the end of the week. Lets all just relax. Once it comes in we will be that much happier! Lets not sweat the small stuff. I still love my Cliq and yes I would love better battery life and other little improvements but I still have a blast using the phone everyday!

  • Satan

    Calm down people. It’s a minor maintenance upgrade, not the second coming of Christ.

    • God

      You’d be surprised…

  • Timmy!!

    Ive had enough. When I bought my cliq the tmobile reps told me theyd be rolling out a 2.0 update BY THE END OF THE YEAR! Now, here it is the end of Feb. and we cant even get a much needed maintenance update on time? Screw it. Im selling my cliq today and going back to my Blackberry. I dont mind waiting, but i DO mind being lied to and treated like a red headed step child while the droid gets all the love. See ya android. Im going back to a solid machine that works. Im just glad I never sold my BB.

  • david

    nothing so far in boston u guys! I will keep trying through out the day and let you know if Boston is up!

  • david
