Got a text message on the daughter's phone stating: "Your LG Ally will receive a software update soon. Before you can receive this update, your Ally needs to install a small app." The email has a URL link to the Android Market, so it seems legit, but it seems a bit strange. She already clicked on the linky, and installed the app, so I hope it is legit.

Anyone else get this and know if its legit?

yes I got it. Check here for instructions. Looks legit. I still don't have the software update yet though. http://support.vzw.com/pdf/system_update/lg_ally_instructions.pdf

VZW CS confirmed it's legit. No update yet, though.

I got a same text message. But as a precaution, I will NOT click on the link until I can verify it's a legitimate from VZW. The number 900070004056 looks weird to me. There is no rush to upgrade. Anyone know what is update about? Is it upgrade to Android 2.3?
