    Well that speculation sucks, hopefully something can be worked out and Verizon will roll out updates.

    I've been with Verizon for 17 years, and now I'm considering a different carrier for the first time because of the lack of updates. I hope it doesn't come to that because Verizon's service has always been great here in Colorado, but its their decision to support a phone, not mine.

    I rooted my Nexus this 1st day I had & never looked back. I bought this phone to do just that. I never waited or took an ota from VZW when I had my D1. It just sucks for those that have this phone & are not into rooting

    Btw, good to see you stop in Preach2K!

    Why doesn't Verizon just add a stipulation to the contracts associated with the nexus devises?

    I have to disagree. Rooting isn't for everyone! True Verizon sucks in updates, but that's the pro/con of being carrier based. They have every right to approve or not what goes on their devices.

    Indeed rooting isn't for everyone. However, Verizon had botched this phone before it even officially released. To expect them keep up with updates now at this point is wishful thinking imo. I've said Verizon could've had something real special with being the first carrier with the Nexus, but it's been disappointment after disappointment with the Big Red when it comes to the Nexus.

    If that JB update ever releases for stock users, I'm happy for them, because JB is an amazing Android experience. However, I wouldn't count on Verizon to get that experience to them, especially since the Nexus is over a year old now and was never supported in the first place.

    With all of the hype about the awesome new features JB was giving I along with all the other stock users certainly hope it comes. I'm not holding my breath any after seeing article after article shooting the likelihood down. Sucks since I myself got my Nexus this past October with the belief I'd have a long supported beast of a phone. Maybe something will change before we all completely give up hope.

    Verizon never wanted this phone I feel.. They felt pressured a bit and figured let's throw a bone out to all those complaining before about no pure Nexus phones on this carrier.. I hope y'all get the update soon but it's not likely with them as many stated.. Rooting is not for everyone but with a phone like this unlocked is so simple I feel it's one you should definitely consider rooting.. There are many good stock Roms and custom for y'all to enjoy.. You can stay close to stock with no issues or added weight if you wanted.. If you plan to keep this phone and taste key lime pie you might as well start now.. :D
