    Hi All -

    New to the Bionic arena. Is the Bionic scheduled to receive an update any time soon? Each time I go to settings->about phone->system update = I am told it is unavailable at this time and to try again later. I have been receiving this message for days now.

    Any ideas on what is going on?

    Just looking for some help.

    Thanks much!

    Sean

    Not in the near future. As far as I know the next update will be ICS in March

    I have 5.5.886.XT875. Is this the most recent? I have received nothing OTA.

    Do you have the original Sim card in? Had the same thing happen to me. It was because I didn't have the original Sim. What you'll need to do to get your phone to connect to the update system is a full reset. Actually I had to do it two times. After I reset my phone still woulden't install the update. I was able to download it, just couldn't install. Then when Verizon sent me my replacement, again it woulden't connect. Reset the new phone and I was able to download and install.

    Your not connecting to there system. you will need to do a rest on your phone. then it will connect and allow you to download the update. I just went through it last week.

    Going to give it a shot now. Hitting the factory reset button as we speak..... Keep your fingers crossed this works. Why they have to make things so difficiult, I will never know.
