    V9m is my all time favorite phone. Software sucked, but it was great hardware.

    Hopefully he's working on a way for us to unlock the bootloader. :icon_ devil:

    why are they even working on this if it is going to takr 30 - 60 more days ?
    They said we would have ICS 6 weeks aftert the release, isn't that about 30 -60 days from now.

    Startac -> Razr -> Rockr -> Droid -> Bionic

    All my cell phones (no other mfr) have been rock solid. Moto is the only mfr that makes phones to Mil Specs. Being a Quality Assurance Rep for the DOD, I know how much that means. I buy the famous 700.00 hammers (not to mention jet engines for the Harrier and pumps for subs - underwear too) and know what processes and testing goes into the equipment our boys and girls overseas depends on.

    Nothing but Moto for me.

    I agree with you, why even release if it is going to be the first of the year when some devices should start seeing ICS? Unless they are modifying this OTA and incorporating the necessary mods to make smooth transition for ICS!

    A person can dream right?

    Herein lies the Apple's greatest advantage... dedicating all their resources towards a single flavor of the OS, for a single piece of hardware. It's the same advantage they've always held when competing with the PC.

    I think the Bionic was designed for ICS and 4G in mind. I think when they released it, they took a "Let's see what we have going on now" approach. Now with ICS imminent, I'll give credit for the time moto is taking to (I assume) make sure that the update will work properly with ICS. As we are noticing from people who have patched to 893, they are receiving updates, so it shows that work is being done. I for one, don't want a patch that's not complete or rushed. Perhaps they are waiting for ICS to be released so they can test their patch with ICS's final version. For the time being, I can deal with the issues until the patch, and have faith that it will make Bionic owners happy that they hung in there.

    Ugh . . 30-60 days. I guess I wouldn't mind waiting that long if it was minor stuff like the camera shutter lag but waiting that long to fix the data connectivity issue is going to be brutal. I think they should concentrate all their efforts on that first and push out a dedicated update ASAP and then take their sweet time fixing all the other minor stuff with another update later on down the road.

    With the exception of my LG 4400, all of my phones have been Motorola and none had to be returned.
