The new and powerful Motorola Electrify from US Cellular has been running strong with Android 2.3 Gingerbread but just like all phones a few updates and bug fixes are needed. Motorola and US Cellular appears to be recruiting around 200 or so users to test the newest update for the Electrify according to the Motorola Forums.
The Motorola ELECTIFY (aka PHOTON) was released on US Cellular back in September and here is our full Electrify review. Apparently a software update is in the works and they’d like to start a soak test or beta test with a few current users and are asking for help at the forums. Here is what they had to say:
Motorola and US Celluar are happy to announce a future pre-release* opportunity for MOTOROLA ELECTRIFY, before it is officially released to all customers. We are recruiting 200 Electrify owners to test and provide feedback on future updates.
This registration period will be open until we receive our limit of qualified applicants. Note that you must be a member of the Motorola Owners’ Forums to register. If you’re interested in testing and want to take part, just join our community now and then fill out the short Motorola Feedback Network registration form. When specific opportunities become available you will receive additional info via email to register for a particular Electrify opportunity.
Please note that registering with the Motorola Feedback Network will not guarantee you’ll be among those testing the software update as testers will be chosen on a first-come, first-served basis, and on valid registration responses. Selected users will receive additional information to prepare for the update via email when the trial begins.

* Motorola Software Pre-Releases are final software checks, with a limited group of users, before upgrades/updates are provided to the general public. Software tested may be no different than what other users receive, once testing is complete.
**Please check back here for updates on general availability.
This isn’t really anything new as we’ve seen plenty of updates get tested before going out, and Motorola hasn’t been very lucky with some of their recent updates so the more testing the better. With updates like this hitting support forums we can expect some sort of update coming in the next few weeks. If all goes well it will hit for all users shortly so stay tuned for more details.
