    Thumbs down Verizon is way behind!

    Posted on Facebook this morning

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    HTC

    We're thrilled to share the sweet news with you first. Starting today, the HTC Vivid on AT&T will be one of the first smartphones in the U.S. to receive an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich, along with an optimized audio experience with Beats By Dre and a refreshed HTC Sense experience.

    Well, Verizon was the first carrier in the US to carrier to have ICS.

    Only thing I'm going to say here is, your complaining about Verizon not releasing ICS update for your devices?

    Think about how the Nexus S & Nexus S 4g users feel not getting ICS officially released yet.. ? Were sitting back getting skipped over by branded devices when we should of been one of the first phones updated after the release of the GNex.

    I think these complaining threads about not receiving ICS updates need to settle down, everyone will get their updates when the manufacture and carrier feels they are bug free enough and ready for a daily driver.

    Not to be frank, but is anyone surprised? Verizon has to make sure the ungodly amount of bloat will work. Sense the rezound has as much or more than any other phone, expect to be one of the last. My girlfriend got a text from Verizon on her rhyme saying that an update was coming soon which I assume to be ics. Her phone has little to no bloat so I assume she will get it long before I will. Remember, paying more for a phone means getting more quality included apps from Verizon /rant

    In my opinion, Rezound owners have little to complain about. You bought a phone fully aware that it is using an old OS. Given the fact you are participating in a forum like this one, it is well known that very rarely if ever are OS updates like this one are released without months of preparation first.

    To me is sounds like forum users are being scolded for discussing news and thier opinions.

    I'm sorry, but this is not to way to maintain friendly participation on this board.

    We don't scold users for expressing their opinions as long as they are within the forum rules. We have no rule against speaking out about a device update. In no way or shape did I say that you can't openly speak, only that everyone needs to chill a little...

    I was merely expressing my opinion on users complaining about their ICS update when here I own a Nexus device which should of received its update long ago and I'm still patiently waiting... I do happen to be on a carrier that is SLOW, Sprint.... Be thankful for what you have with Verizon.

    LOL!

    Maybe we should just skip Ice Cream Sandwich and go straight for Jelly Bean. The only problem is that I like ice cream A LOT better than jelly beans

    I care about coverage and 4g service, Verizon has that over ATT. And if its really about getting ICS I'm rooting and can just flash Rom right away if I wanted it that bad.

    I think the issue for many Rezound owners is that they were pretty much told first quarter 2012 for ICS and naturally most people want those upgraded features.

    Verizon is a lot more expensive than AT&T and more is expected of Verizon than of AT&T.

    I think Rezound owners have a right to want ICS and to complain, if they want to, because they have not gotten what they were told they were going to get.

    I love my phone, with or without ICS, but I DO want the upgrade ... as do many others. Verizon has gotten so big, that it has dropped the ball in a number of areas (especially customer satisfaction) over the past few years. Telling customers that Rezound would have ICS in first quarter 2012 is just another sign that Verizon has lost touch and yes, is behind.

    One of the reasons I chose Verizon is because for my uses, Verizon is substantially cheaper than Sprint.

    I think those of us seasoned realize that carrier or manuf. promises are not really to be trusted, and are in general delayed particularly in updates. If you must have ICS, get a phone with ICS already. Or get the leaked ICS which doesn't require root.

    For my uses, AT&T would be about the same price as Verizon. But once I factor in my data uses, AT&T would be WAY more expensive than Verizon, since I use unthrottled 25-30gb 4GLTE. To get the same unthrottled data on AT&T would cost WAY more.

    If only Verizon had a good phone with ICS! I suppose Verizon will as soon as the Rezound gets ICS.

    The complaining doesn't stem from the fact that we have an older OS and yell "gimme! gimme!" when we saw a new one, the complaining stems from HTC blowing smoke up our asses with the "early 2012 ICS" talks. Here we are, a couple of days from April, and still no solid ICS talk aside from "coming soon."
    Not that I believed HTC or any other manufacturer anyway, but that doesn't excuse any of them from lying in an attempt to get sales. I bought the Rezound for the hardware, and I'm plenty pleased with it.

    Oh, and Verizon optimizing their barrel of [deleted] for ICS certainly doesn't speed up the process. Good thing there's plenty of HTC ICS leaks.

    I add 6-12 months to every timeline Verizon announces when it comes to OS updates. This way I'm rarely disappointed. Well until the update comes out, and it FUBARs my phone (Incredible). So, you might want to be careful what you wish for.

    Didn't I say that we'd be lucky to see the official ICS update before Xmas 2013? I agree with everyone else, it is BS that HTC said Q1 2012 for the update and that they haven't delivered. However I've been on ICS for quite a while now. I've found the ROM base that I liked and tweaked it to exactly what I want. While having official ICS would be nice, it's not a major concern for me.

    This is why a lot of us use custom ROMs to begin with. Initially it was to get functionality...now it's to get what we WANT. I wanted ICS, so I got it. Rooting/ROM'ing needs to lose the stigma that it's wrong/will break your phone. Some nice stable ROMs have come down the pike, and while they don't have the celebrity status of Cyanogenmod, they're definitely "daily drivers"

    Which ICS are you using? I've prepped my phone for a ROM switch but I'm wishy washy about which ICS ROM to stick on here.
