    I think it might have been you that said droid-lift is turning into the TMZ of Android blogs.
    Oh my God, that just brightened my day lol

    I think the reason I am so excited to get ICS on this phone, is because right after the update, I plan to step onto my 2085 Chevrolet Volt and beam myself to the moon for a relaxing afternoon at the beaches of the Sea of Tranquility.

    My guess is we'll be getting the ICS upgrade the end of this month/early July.

    they were denying America has an obesity problem, not an epidemic. an epidemic is a disease/virus, not a life choice.

    They said end of Q2 which is end of June. But the way Verizon works, end of Q2 is when they will remember that Razr Maxx owners exist. End of Q3 is when they'll start sending out a soak test. then we wont hear anything until 95% of Maxx owners have updated to something else. Then they'll act like they're all fantastic when they release the ICS update to 55 customers. This will be of course when Android 7.1.2 is being released on other phones.
    Unofortunately this is mostly true. Even before the Razr was released the played up that ICS would be coming to it shortly after release. They may not have said those exact words (although local Verizon reps did say this) but they definitely implied that it was as a way to get people to buy it over the Nexus.

    I recall Motorola saying the RAZR would get ice cream sandwich six weeks after the source was released.
    I'm just glad I like this phone how it is now. I can wait for ICS.

    When the original Razr was released it was advertising as update to ICS in early 2012. Unfortunately Verizon must run on a 36 month yearly calendar.

    Time dilation. Verizon's HQ must be on a spacecraft somewhere approaching the speed of light.

    Have any of you heard the report from Droid life that Verizon has reported no release date for ICS for Razr and Maxx owners yet? I've seen this a couple places now, but not here.
    Actually, I had a Verizon Rep on Twitter tell me yesterday that there is no release date for it yet. And no, I'm not making this up or trying to start anything...it's the truth.

    And how many times do people have to say that carrier "Reps" do not know anything about what it is their company is doing.... I don't care if they are from Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint or the big bad AT&T, they still don't know anything!!! Even if they are wearing sunglasses

    I've heard 3 different stories from 3 different reps about 3 different topics just this week. All of which were proven fools. I don't believe a Damned word they say. People have to learn that.

    I am aquaintances with a couple of Verizon CSR's. I can say with absolute certainty they have NO idea when ICS is supposed to come out. For that manner they would be baffled if you asked them anything about an Ice Cream Sandwich other than the one made with actual ice cream.

    And even then I wouldn't be so sure.

    I just got this automated text message from Verizon:

    "Free Verizon Message: Your phone will soon be upgraded to Android 4.0. At that time we will remove your Verizon Wireless Mobile IM app because it is not supported on Android 4.0. Please download a new instant messaging app to use IM on your phone. Thank you for using Mobile IM!"

    I think it's an encouraging sign......
