    It will not be much longer guys... And I wouldn't rely on those worthless screenshots of Motorola's update schedules or big reds or any for that matter. I myself along with many of you already know that for the past several years this happens. The anticipation just drags the update time in our heads even longer and threads begin to clutter as someone tries to either be helpful or just the first to post what they hope to be breaking news on the matter. If you just forget about it and enjoy what you have for now time will fly and before you know it bammm update on your phone...Peace! Just my 17 cents.. lol An observation I guess...How many of you have already fell into the "But the guy just posted a screen shot of the official" and the day comes and no balls on the court..Not even a game for that matter... So, let time fly! It will be here sooner than later...( god did I say that?) Lmao

    Well, this isn't actually a notification of an impending soak test. It's just a general call for people to sign up to take part in future soak tests. That could mean there's a soak test tomorrow, or it could be there's one in six months. And even if a soak test does happen to follow sometime soon, at this point don't know for sure what OS version it will be for. Just more rumors to throw into the fire.

    These reasons are why I said I "hope" this means we are next and quickly lol.

    Usually they get stuff over there before we do though...

    But I hope we will get this ball rolling soon :)

    Would you prefer dead silence and absolutely no indications of any estimates of a time line?

    Well we've all witnessed the alternative lol..right? Just making observation.. lol Sorry man if I came off any heated..wasn't intended FoxKat but you of all people have to at least know where I'm coming from..lol You've been there with me and many others update after update. And the same goes for the phone releases. I'll admit I play and have played a major part in the years but I guess more or less I'm personally just over the whole date thing only because I will read every post and thread and get a bit excited with the best of them and knowing in the back of my head this probably isn't happening..lol

    I am sorry, but I didn't read that link as an impending European soak test for ICS, but rather a request for more European Razr owners to participate in future software tests.

    I think it is amusing that it seems that for these "can't wait to get (insert next major update here)" posts that the op will post what seems like very promising official, it's gotta be so, information and then that's it...the op disappears never to be heard from again. Do you think they are sitting back getting a thrill out of everyone's comments or are they scared to post for fear of getting lynched?

    I wouldn't have bought my Razr Maxx to begin with if I wasn't satisfied with the Gingerbread operating system it was running. Getting ICS will be super cool, but I can wait patiently until it comes and no one from Motorola or Verizon promised me a release date.

    Pathetic compared to who? Very few phones out there have received ICS updates, and no phones on Verizon have received ICS updates. Motorola is pretty much on par with the rest of the manufacturers out there. I'm not defending the amount of time it's taking, but Motorola is no more pathetic than any other manufacturers.

    Well said.

    Oh I am satisfied with GB but I downloaded the ICS leak and installed it. The browser is the only thing that I liked from ICS. Im in GB again but I really miss the browser. I believe they did promised an update a couple of weeks after the release.

    Samsung has officially updated the unlocked, carrier-free versions of Galaxy SII and what else? Not much. Like I said, hardly any phones have actually been updated. Until the major manufacturers release a flood of updates, including updates on carrier-branded phones (which require additional testing by the carriers themselves, something the unlocked, carrier-free phones do not), Motorola has really been no better or worse than anyone else. And Motorola has given out just as much information as Sony has, so again, they're no better or worse than anyone else.

    Honestly, I prefer no news at all as opposed to inaccurate news. Given Moto's track record, and indication of a timeline is generally false anyways. So in that case, lack of information would be better since no one would spend time getting their hopes up. Just my humble opinion, of course, but i've seen missed target dates too many times in the software world (not just cell phone OSes).
