webOS 2.1 coming to a Verizon Pre 2 near you

The above alert might not have arrived for many Pre 2 users yet, but Verizon Wireless has confirmed in four different ways that an OTA (over-the-air) update for the Pre 2 to webOS version 2.1 (build 124) is on the way very soon. In our forums, etphoto tells us about his recent experience with a Verizon support rep who told him about the pending update, and he was quickly followed by our awesome community members who found more proof that the update was incoming. On Twitter, @VZWSupport said that the update actually started pushing through the system on the 9th of August, and on Verizon's Support Website they even provide instructions on how to perform the upgrade yourself once it's available for you (though, do we really need instructions on how to tap a button?).

It's been a long wait for Pre 2 owners in this quest to get webOS 2.1, and many of you have probably already meta-doctored the update through methods provided by our homebrew community. For everyone else, though, that wait is finally coming to an end and the OTA update should be arriving soon. Start hitting those refresh buttons, people!
