Either way, I do expect that most of the American carriers will release around the same time, based on the past few that we've seen for this line of phones, but I wouldn't start going nuts if these dates don't turn out to be 100% accurate.
2. Verizon seldom releases much info on updates until they are actually released. The fact that Verizon hasn't published any public announcement regarding the software update doesn't really mean too much, IMO.
If it were me, I'd wait until I was back in the states. There's a very good chance your phone won't even register the update as being available until you're able to contact a Verizon tower back home, but even if it is, it's probably much safer to wait. If something were to go wrong and you'd need to reset the phone, you may have issues registering on the network...or a number of other things may go amiss.
