My frustrations with HTC and/or Verizon are growing stronger by the day. They said that we Dinc 2 owners would be getting ICS by the end of August which is tomorrow and still we haven't heard squat yet. And for the record I am not a rooter not that there is anything wrong with it it's just not for me.

+1 When i had my dInc1, I rooted and flashed many drives. I just got bored with it and seemed like the ROMs always had updates which makes you do a data reset every freaking two weeks! Been non-rooted for over a year now
I picked up an Incredible 2 to serve as a stand in for a faltering Incredible until I decide on my next device. It's disappointing to see the foot-dragging on the ICS update. I'll take a look at the root thread. Any idea how hard the process is to root the Dinc2?
HTC posted a Facebook update in regard to the Thunderbolt admitting they missed the deadline. Since the Thunderbolt is likely to get upgraded before the Incredible 2 it's certain we will have to wait longer.
Yeah I think delays for the Tbolt mean delays for the Inc 2. They only have so many developers, so if they are struggling with one project that just takes away from another I am guessing.
I agree with some of the above comments: custom roms can be a pain. I have one on my tablet, but I don't want to do that for my all-important primary phone.
And it's true, Verizon's Nexus isn't getting updates. You know what this means to me? Goodbye Verizon. They are giving me zero reasons to stay with them. New every two has become meaningless, and they added to that a $30 upgrade fee, and they don't update their phones. Why am I with them again? The network? Yeah it's not that amazing, not enough to put with the BS.
I think I might buy a used Nexus S and try out T-mobile's $30 plan just to see what that's like.
The ONLY reason I've stuck with Verizon so far has been the network. I've had enough people tell me I can't get a signal in places where I DID get a signal that I've stuck with them. I don't like being gouged for data though. I don't have a grandfathered unlimited plan. Their new "shared data" plan doesn't interest me at all. I hardly use the 2GB they gouge me for now. I use WiFi all over the place. It's faster than 3G. There isn't any 4G coverage where I live (although it may come within the next year). I hardly use the data plan at all but I still have to pay for the stupid thing.
I too, have defended VZW for years, but since I will lose my unlimited data IF I upgrade in July '13 (I have to WAIT that long for my contract to end) I'm EVENTUALLY ditching Verizon...BUT since NO career offers to pay your ETF if you sign with THEM, I will have stuck with VZW, for now...so ICS would be nice (since I have no computer to root)...but with different home replacement I can KINDA keep the duldrums of being stuck with ONE cellphone for 2 years away (fixed income+fiscal responsibility)...pre-payed sounds good...did I just see T-Mo and the words "unlimited data" "Galaxy Note 2"???...HMMMMMMMMM
