    I'm with him. I'm just a little nervous to accept it. I had my RAZR go down on me when it happen before. Don't wanna have to reset my whole phone

    Did you delete any of the bloatware apps ? They sadly need to be on the phone . You should only freeze the apps if you ever plan on taking over the air updates do your phone.

    I was having this issue too. What I did to force the update was to plug my phone into my computer and use the Verizon Software Upgrade Assistant. It worked like a charm.

    So, is there someone who can provide the list of apps (that I have to reinstall) - a complete list so I can reinstall them, unroot and install the update. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
