We’ve been receiving Phantips from Motorola Droid Razr/Maxx users that the 6.12.181 update we told you about last week is now being pushed out over the air by Verizon. If you haven’t received it yet, you can try checking in your phones settings to manually pull the update or as one user suggested, power off, then power on your device and you should receive the prompt.
