    Verizon told me today that they are waiting on motorola to push the update. Not sure I believe that that's what they said.

    I've learned that if Punit Soni posts about it on Google+, it's probably going to happen. Then I wait until Verizon actually makes an official announcement.

    In this case, Punit Soni says it's coming to "other carriers". I believe him. I'm not going to get hung up on when though.

    Yet another uneducated Verizon rep who thinks (or pretends?) Verizon has nothing to do with the process.

    Not that I'm defending Verizon, but it could be that Verizon has tested it, given it their blessing and now the ball's in Motorola's court to actually push out the updates, or not. That's why for me this is so frustrating, all this speculation is because all of the parties involved give incomplete/vague statements.

    My understanding is Manufacturer [MOTO] makes the update and gives to carrier [Verizon]. Carrier tests it to see it it "breaks their network "If the carrier is satusfied then Carrier pushes it to the phones.

    Question: SInce the new Droids are similar to the Moto X in many respects could VZW be waiting to update all 3 at the same time?

    I remember reading this awhile ago, Moto is pushing out the updates, but the carriers still have to approve them though Motorola will supply over-the-air updates to the Moto X, not carriers - Pocket-lint

    I'm sure we'll get the update, but like everything else through Verizon, I'm sure it'll be significantly later than all the other carriers. Fortunately for me, the camera isn't the most important thing for me or the reason why I chose this phone.

    I've never understood that. Does anyone actually use vz navigator? I can't imagine anyone paying extra on top for that junk when Google navigation and waze both are much better. They need to just discontinue that and several other of their other bloats.

    I'm looking straight at you backup assistant.

    I always never understood why they point vz navigator on smartphones since Google navigation is free
    When phone was being activated at vzw the store rep asked how I backed up my contacts without pausing for my answer he said."Backup assistant"?
    I said oh hell no backed up by syncing contacts with Google

    Because some people are too stupid to realize that Navigation is free through Google's apps. It's similar to all the stupid people who pay for Verizon Visual Voicemail without realizing that Google Voice will do the same thing for free.

    Interresting.... since Verizon has always been "the Problem" and Moto hasn't yet updated Verison I wonder if they will beable to stick to their guns in this regard.

    I am curious as to How Motroloa is pushing the update in comparison to how the carriers normally do it. Does the Moto X have software installed on the device thet "phones home" to Motoroloa every so often?

    In my fantasies, there are at least a dozen reasons why this delay could turn out to be a good thing.
    Heck, there's even one where Motomaker is opened to Verizon customers just after the KitKat announcement, and...sigh

    Reality hits you hard, bro.

    I'm really hoping this hurries up. It's making me not want to switch from my S4. Especially with the calling issue.

    Ah that's right. He mentioned coming soon to "other carriers" in his G+ post.

    Yeah exactly, and he just recently replied to a specific question about Verizon update confirming it was coming

    I don't see how this is any different.

    Last year, Motorola accidentally pushed an update to the DROID RAZR that wasn't supposed to be released. They have the functionality to do it themselves already.

    Went to a VZW store today and was pissed to see the display had the update on it-version 139.6.1.
    I called VZW and questioned this as i got a replacement and it had the old version on it ( i probably got a certified/refurbished). The new phones most likely have the update installed. Anyone buy an X very recently and have this new version installed?
    They also said it is coming very soon.

    Now that i look at Moto's update page, 139.6.1 looks to be an older version.

    I saw the Rogers edition of the X is getting its OTA pushed out now. Punit Soni posted that verizon will be out shortly (again) so hopefully it'll be any day now?
