    Honestly, as much as I want KitKat, I'm fine where I'm at. The latest update has improved my DNA's responsiveness and has increased battery life significantly. I can wait for the update (if it ever does show up).

    As long as SENSE 5.5 is moving further in the direction its going and doesn't fall back... :P When i first got my DNA, i forgot it was HTC and was dreading having to have SENSE, and 2 days later 5.0 came out and i fell in love again

    Yeah, Im not overly worried about 4.4. I got 4.2 and Sense 5. That was the more major step in versions. 4.4 and Sense 5.5 are nothing more than more tweaks to an already great OS. If it shows up soon, great, if not, I will continue to enjoy what I have, and thats a great phone.

    I'd like to see it sooner rather than later. But if it's not gonna change much I guess it doesn't matter. If it bumps up the battery life I'd be real happy though. Not getting much out of a charge right now.

    I'd welcome it since the last update added lag to my stock messenger app. Plus with 4.4 Wallet doesn't need the secure element so VZW shouldn't be able to block tap to pay anymore.

    Well if thats the main issue you have, use a 3rd party app. First thing I replace on every phone I get is my messenger app. Stockers have always been awful all around. The lack of customization really bothers me.

    For me personally, I use Handcent, I have also tried Go SMS but wasnt a huge fan of its customization. Handcent more or less does what the stock app does, but pretty much every aspect of it can be changed to your liking from colors to what the messages look like, background of message lists etc... Worth a try if stock one is giving you issues. Both the ones I mentioned work roughly the same, just prefer Handcent's customization more.

    I know some people use Hangouts to kinda combine their texts and messaging via google+ and such but I liked having those separate.

    Just give them a try, see if you like any of them and see if they work out for you. Some others could have some suggestions also that I havent used, but Im just going by what Ive tried/use.

    Thanks for the ideas. I tried Talk but MMS would always fail so I gave up on that. I'll give the others a try

    I was just looking at HTC's Software Update page and it looks like the update has gone to Verizon for certification, so it should be out soon!

    I am pretty surprised, to be honest I was not expecting to get 4.4. I am very happy with 4.2 and sense 5 now so really this is just like a bonus to me.

    I was a bit shocked to see the DNA move from "Integration" to "certification" yesterday as well. I'd only looked at the chart as news yesterday indicated that the carrier versions of the One moved to "certification". I have a One on AT&T so I've been keeping up with the 4.4 news for the One, knowing that the DNA was in that mix too.

    I guess unlike a lot of folks on this thread I am really looking forward to 4.4 on the DNA (and the One). My DNA is a bit beat up, bought used after selling my new one after a few months, but I am glad to have gotten another one after it was updated to 4.2.2 with Sense 5.

    If the DNA really is in "certification" that could mean 4.4 is coming a lot sooner then end of March (end of Q1)

    I've never liked being behind on OS updates. (My main phone is an iPhone 5S).

    Don't get your hopes up, folks. The DNA was listed as being in "certification" for the past week or so, but has been downgraded back to "integration". Good thing HTC is following their cute so well. Nowhere does it show the possibility of going backwards to "integration".

    Don't be such a pessimist! After all, didn't they follow through with the ICS update for our Thunderbolts........ after about a year?

    I'm with you. I'll be happy if/when we get it, but I'm not gonna sit around worrying about it. By the way, I thought I read that the One also went back to integration, so at least the DNA isn't alone!

    This is just those few people who THINK they know more about cell phones and Building out Updates then the people who's job it is to make it work correctly and implement it...
    Oh Well, It will come soon enough

    If it failed an integration test they have to send it back for a fix. The alternative is to have a phone with a potential killer bug. I think I would rather wait.

    And all customer facing schedules show the "happy" path. There is always a possibility of going backwards.

    Yes, but there are paths built into certification to correct those problems uncovered during the process. If you have a problem with your steak at a restaurant, they send it back to the kitchen, not back to the farm where the cow was raised.

    I also independently verified that the site should never have listed the DNA in "Certification". That was an error and it was corrected. It is currently in "Integration" and has not moved past that yet.

    I wonder if the DNA will make it into the 2 year upgrade cycle HTC is promising

    Pretty sure that HTC said this only applies to phones sold after the announcement.
