I figured that , my question was is that really legit. I am shocked that they don't use verizonwireless.com as the url.

Never mind, I just got an email from verizonwireless.com and it had a link to that site as well. Just very amazed that they would use vzam.net it sounds like a fake url to trick people into downloading a virus or giving out info.

I just got it, what is the new software update? are they talking about the .176 update?

edit: nvm.. yea its for the .176.. haha I just read in the "updates" part of the patch it says "addresses the ringer volume issue"... the patch made my ringer LOWER then before. stupid VZW..
