    It seems to be going out to a few. The guy at XDA posted a vid of it. Looks like its legit - even tho looks can be faked but Im hoping for the best

    his vid:

    xda thread: 4.3 Verizon Note 2 Release time and area - Page 23 - xda-developers
    Yes, that thread is growing...26 pages now as of 2130 Central...screenshots posted. Not clear yet if it's the real deal

    Not calling it a fake but when he opens the about phone button did anyone notice the little i next to the text about phone it was not blue. Unless the update changed the color this could be proof of a fake.

    Why isn't the sim card in it in the video?

    He said it was a Christmas gift for his son, that is why there was no sim card in it.. Later post shows picture with his sim card in it and full signal. He is traveling so doing all this while going from one place to another. Looks like they will be uploading the update shortly. This looks legit

    It's not just over an update. The are re-doing the plans again for data, and I currently have unlimited and they want me to select a data plan because I use around 10-15GB a month.....

    sorry but that sounds so bogus. last month my wife and I used over 31GB on Verizon's unlimited plan. been going over 10GB a month for most of the last year.

    Ouch...hurts my wallet to hear this. I'm not on the unlimited plan and pay $$, as I alone average around and 10GB per month (hopefully less now that Google Music can store on the external SD card).

    But don't forget I pay full price for my phones. I spent over 1,500 dollars for a couple of note 2's. But its worth it when you consider the difference between buying them for $300 each vs $750 each spread out over 2 years. the monthly cost isn't that bad compared to paying Verizon's rip off data plan prices

    This day and age how do you guys find yourselves NEVER in a Wi-Fi area? I mean I live in a rural middle, GA town and I'm ALWAYS in WiFi coverage. (At home and at work) every restaurant, coffee shop, even the garage that I recently got tires had Wi-Fi. I have an allotment of 5gs of data monthly. You know how much I used last month? 1.2 GB

    I have great coverage and I get great customer service. And one question, why would you leave a carrier just because they didn't update your phone. That doesn't sound mature.
    I think these forums are mostly populated by children and teenyboppers,there's no other logical explanation.

    If you knew the guys in this community of XDA developers, they are not the fake it folks, they are the pioneers of roms and are working not only to get the file to the masses but to start work on the custom roms from the platform. The particular person who got it, is a very respected developer and is working with beans. These two are the rockstars behind much of what we have in the custom rom community. It is not only legit but we are days away from them releasing it for us so we do not have to wait on Big Red. Be skeptical if you want but I will have 4.3 on Verizon in days thanks to their hard work and dedication.

    I have no incentive to use Wi-Fi as I'm surrounded by fast LTE (even faster than my home Internet connection) and still have unlimited data. Besides, I don't trust public Wi-Fi, they're insecure by nature and could have a bad guy on it able to scan your data as it goes over the insecure network.

    Back to the thread topic, as of this morning (12-9-13), Verizon still hasn't updated their Note 2 support page (once a software update goes live they update it. See the Benefits of Software Upgrade pdf): http://support.verizonwireless.com/s...laxynote2.html

    I use my phone for everything, more than my laptop.
    The only time I go over 2gb in a month is when I'm trying new ROMs.

    Ok, back on topic... so this guy really got the Verizon OTA and no one else has?...... and there's no mention of an update on their webpage?.... I hope it's true for our sake, but I'm a tad bit skeptical..... at least until someone else from his area confirms that they have launched.
